This is one of the most amazing and easy cheese appetizers ever. It's got that texture that people love about goat cheese. Basil and tomato have a proven track record of being incredibly delicious with creamy cheeses, and this is no exception.

  • Drizzle about 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil into the bottom of each 6-ounce ramekin and sprinkle about 1 tablespoon basil per ramekin over the oil. Place 1 goat cheese piece over the basil in each ramekin; surround with sliced cherry tomatoes. Top with cracked black pepper and cayenne. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoon of the remaining basil on top of each portion, place ramekins on a baking sheet, and drizzle each serving with 1 1/2 teaspoons more olive oil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling, about 15 minutes. Serve warm.

Cook's Note:

To make thinly sliced basil (chiffonade), roll 3 or 4 basil leaves together into a tight cylinder and slice into thin ribbons.
