Goat Cheese Wrapped in Chard

OMG.  I think I have entered Nirvana.  I just made the most incredible dish. I got the idea from one of my FAVORITE blogs, Chez What?.  He made his in a fig leaf, but otherwise it is the same.  I wrapped up a chunk of goat cheese in a large chard leaf and popped it in a skillet.  Then I chopped up some tomatoes, dusted them with salt and pepper, and popped them in the skillet next to the chard and cheese packet.  Once the cheese was all soft and melty in the chard, I took the stuff out and unwrapped it.  The author of Chez What? served his tomatoes on top of the leaf and next to the cheese, with the leaf open.  I stuck my tomatoes in there, wrapped it back up and ate it like a burrito.  I served a spicy chicken sausage on the side.  I had this for lunch and it is so good I may eat it again for dinner.  I am not kidding.  Try it.  And visit Chez What? if you haven't already, because it is a truly incredible resource and a beautiful website.

I want to try it in a fig leaf too. It was an added bonus to eat the chard with it, though. :) I'm glad we can mutually inspire each other.

P.S. I'm glad you weren't offended by my mistake. :)
