You must make this recipe!! This is incredibly flavorful -- I know I will make this over and over again. The goat cheese adds a really nice flavor. I used cannellini beans instead of great northern, since that's what I had on hand. It made enough "topping" that I saved half the recipe and will be making it again tomorrow night, adding in balsamic (as another reviewer suggested), to do a taste test between the regular recipe and adding that ingredient in.

Yum! Add a dash of balsamic vinegar and some sun dried tomatoes for a little more flavor. Will definitely make this again! Read More

my friend and family forcibly demand that I make this recipe time and time again. I altered it by toasting the bread with the goat cheese already on. I also usually omit the olives and replace the saltiness with some kohser salt. Also, 5oz goat cheese is about the minimum, you can probably use twice that... Read More

Excellent. I added just a little rosemary because I had rosemary going on with the rest of my meal. Next time I might mash a few of the beans to bind this just a bit. Thanks! Read More

I have made these several times now and always have people ask for the recipe! They are delicicous! I use the Pilsbury french loaf, roll it in an Italian dried herb mix (parsley, basil, oregano, garlic, and onion powders), then bake the bread. It gives the bread a little color and extra flavor!

YUM! Instead of putting this on the bread, I put it over penne pasta and added the goat cheese...my 2 year old gobbled it up...I used kalamata olives (are these the same as Greek?) and thought they were a little strong compared to the rest of the ingredients...but overall, yummy! Read More

I served this recipe on Christmas and it was a huge hit! I added a few touches to it. I added about two tablespoons of balsamic to the mixture along with some fresh, coarsley grated parmigiano reggiano cheese. I picked up a baguette from my local Panera to make the crostini. TDF! Read More

Excellent! I was looking for a recipe to recreate a white bean bruschetta i had at an Italian restaurant (Po in W. village) and it was delicious and so easy to make. It was definitely a crowd pleaser and easy to do in a crunch. Read More
