These are fantastic! I make everything ahead the day before I need them. I then set the parts on the counter a few hours ahead of party time and let them come to room tempterature. I toast sliced whole wheat baguette and then assemble right at party time. This my new go to appetizer. It's elegant, the cheese is rich, the veg is sweet and the red pepper flakes have a tiny kick. Perfect!

Actually made this as an accompaniment for a brunch, and my husband and I both loved it! The spicy pepper flakes and salt compliment the fresh bell peppers and chard well. Goat cheese can be a little strong, but it blended well with the other flavors, which helped to balance it out. Definitely will make this again.

Wow, i've struggled to find a recipe to use all the chard we get from the CSA but this recipe solved that problem! Everyone loved this recipe. It is quick and easy. As someone suggested, I make it ahead to have on hand. Our favorite appetizer! I do cheat and use roasted red peppers from a bottle. I roast some grape tomatoes at the same time I broil the bread and they add one more layer of flavor.

Excellent! I used this recipe to use up swiss chard I had from another recipe. I used cream cheese on some and a red pepper Boursin cheese on others. My boyfriend devoured them.
