  • 4 crottin de chavignol, halved to make 8 rounds
  • 2 tbsp plain flour, seasoned
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 50g panko breadcrumbs
  • for frying groundnut oil
  • 8 mini burger buns, split and toasted
  • baby watercress

red pepper jam

  • 2 red peppers, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 2 red chillies, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 2 plum tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • a small chunk ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp cider vinegar


  • STEP 1

    To make the jam, put the peppers, chillies, tomatoes, ginger and garlic in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Tip everything into a pan and add the sugar and vinegar. Bring to a simmer, then cook for 45 minutes, skimming off any impurities that surface. Keep an eye on the pan to make sure it doesn’t burn. The mix should look jammy after this time – if it doesn’t, turn up the heat and give it another 5-10 minutes then leave to cool.

  • STEP 2

    Coat each piece of goat’s cheese in flour, then egg and finally breadcrumbs. Repeat the egg and breadcrumb stage so you have a double layer.

  • STEP 3

    Heat a 2cm layer of oil in a large frying pan and cook the goat’s cheese rounds for a few minutes on each side until crisp and golden, then remove and drain on kitchen paper.

  • STEP 4

    Put a little baby watercress in each bun, top with the goat’s cheese and finish with a dollop of chilli jam.
