  • 6 ounces thick-cut bacon diced
  • 1 shallot thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shaved Brussels sprouts
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 ounces goat cheese softened
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • sea salt
  • 6 slices thick-sliced artisan bread
  1. Heat a large sauté pan over high heat. Add the bacon and cook for a few minutes, until it starts to brown. Add the shallot and shaved Brussels sprouts, toss and season with freshly ground black pepper. Sauté until the bacon is crispy and the sprouts are soft.
  2. Combine the goat cheese, olive oil and thyme leaves in a small bowl, mixing until smooth. Season with a little sea salt to taste.
  3. Toast the bread slices using a toaster, or heat some olive oil in a sauté pan and fry the bread lightly on each side. (Alternatively, brush olive oil on the bread slices generously and air-fry for about 5 minutes until lightly brown.)
  4. Assemble the toasts by first spreading the goat cheese mixture on each slice and then topping with spoonfuls of the bacon and Brussels sprouts. Garnish with coarsely cracked black pepper.
