Basil Tomato Goat Cheese Appetizer

In my family we are always looking for new recipes to try...it has become a favorite past time of mine, trying to find something new to test out on the family!  The funny thing is that this extends past just my immediate family.  My aunts are the same way!  Any time we all find a recipe we like, we want to make it for the next family event.  This is what leads to copious amounts of food for each and every family gathering...it is like Thanksgiving every time!
I was recently at my aunt's house for a family gathering and as usual we had TONS of food, so much so in fact that the appetizer I brought which needed to be heated up in the microwave was accidentally forgotten about until just before dinner when it was found....still in the microwave...oops!  

The best part is that each time we gather it is like walking into a new cookbook...I acquire tons of delicious new recipes and this is one of those tasty treats!  Perfect for any cocktail gathering or holiday party...simple, tasty and super easy to put together.

Basil Tomato and Goat Cheese Appetizer

2 cans diced tomatoes, with garlic and onions
1 can chicken broth
1 tablespoons dried basil
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon thyme
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
goat cheese

In a skillet heat olive oil and cook minced garlic.  Add the tomatoes and the chicken broth and heat through. Add spices and let cook until thick.  Pour the sauce in a dish and lay goat cheese on top.  
Cook at 350 for 20 minutes or until the goat cheese is soft and the tomatoes are bubbly.
Serve with toast rounds.
Pin It!
