What's for lunch?

Coolish rainy afternoon... what's for lunch? How about some goat cheese toasties?


4 oz soft goats cheese / chèvre
2 slices ham, chopped
½ large onion, chopped
1 tblsp olive oil
2 tblsp chopped herbs (parsley, oregano, basil)
6 slices crusty bread

Preheat oven to 400.
Gently heat olive oil until fragrant. Fry onion until softened and golden in color.
In small bowl, combine cheese, onion, ham and herbs.
Spread onto bread and bake in oven for 15 minutes or until topping is warm and bread crusty.

Notes & Variations
Add some paprika or freshly ground pepper for more adult tastes.
Use thick slices of baked ham (leftover Christmas ham is perfect) or fry several chopped bacon rashers with onion (omitting olive oil).
