I knew when I saw Bergy's post that I had to make this, and it did not disappoint. I used less butter and green onions for the chives. Luvcookn's open faced photo convinced me to do the same, and it was a very nice presentation. Be prepared goat cheese lovers, you may want to eat more than one portion, it is that good (and that chock full of goat cheese)!

As I was having several people over for brunch, I decided to make open faced as I could make several at a time. I did sub the chives for Italian parsley. We thoroughly enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing Ellie! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
