For the Topping
- 3 cups grapes , washed and halved
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp dried rosemary
- 1 tsp thyme leaves
- 8 oz herbed goat cheese

Preheat oven to 375°F. Slice baguette into 1/4 inch thick slices on a diagonal. Arrange on a baking pan, brush with olive oil, and sprinkle fine sea salt. Bake for 5-7 minutes, flip slices over and bake for another 5 minutes. Remove from oven.
While baguette slices are toasting, toss the grape halves with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, rosemary and thyme and put into a 9x9 baking dish.
