How to Make It

Step 1    

Steam the potatoes until tender, about 25 minutes. Keep warm. Meanwhile, in a bowl, use a wooden spoon to beat the goat cheese until fluffy. Add the minced chives, garlic, grappa and 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2    

In a skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat until slightly crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.

Step 3    

Toast the bread. Spread the flavored cheese on the toast, drizzle with olive oil and top with a few whole chives. Arrange a cheese toast, a slice of bacon and 2 warm potatoes on each plate and serve.

Make Ahead

The flavored cheese can be refrigerated overnight.

Suggested Pairing

Try a red wine from Crozes-Hermitage or Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
