Recipe by Chef John
"The way the tangy, slightly salty goat cheese works with the syrupy, balsamic-coated strawberries and crispy, charred bread is a thing of beauty."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I changed this a little, although I'm sure it would still deserve 5 stars, as written. This made an extremely good dessert, for my Sunday dinner. I used a frozen pound cake (thawed) instead of oiled bread, and only broiled it on one side, for one minute. However, I followed all the rest of the recipe. Everyone at the dinner loved it, even one person who HATES balsamic vinegar!!!
I had some goat cheese that I wanted to use, so I tried this recipe. It might have been better on bread, but I mounded the goat cheese on a serving plate, then drizzled the strawberry mix over the cheese, and served it with crackers. I liked the flavors, but my guests were ho-hum about this presentation.
I have made this using basil instead of the thyme and its amazing!!! People always ask me for the recipe.
Good. I had some trouble reducing the vinegar, it turned hard fast. But the flavors came together well in the end.
Let me make this perfectly clear....I Don't like goat cheese, too earthy. I don't like strawberries, too many little seeds to get caught in my teeth. I don't like Balsamic vinegar, too strong, and you want me to reduce it as well....PLEASE. I DO like this recipe, exactly as posted....go figure.
Tastes fan-freakin'-tastic. The saucy cut-up fruit does not travel well. Wait til it's the last possible moment to mix it up.
I enjoyed this but thought the thyme was a little overpowering for my taste. I am going to make again using basil. The flavor is really great with the tanginess and the sweet from the vinegar, cheese, and strawberry.
These are amazing!! We took the advice of another and used basil instead of thyme. My kids 12 & 7 ask for these daily and even the picky hubs likes them too. Thanks for the great recipe!
