  2. Tip the egg and breadcrumbs into separate shallow dishes. Dip the cheeses into the egg, then roll in the breadcrumbs. repeat so they are completely coated. Put the cheeses on an oiled baking tray, then drizzle a little oil over. Bake for 10 mins until they are golden.
  3. While the cheese cooks, finely slice the beetroot, then arrange on plates. When the cheese is cooked, place on top of the beetroot and top with thyme sprigs. Drizzle the dressing over the beetroot and serve.

Lovely dressing. I used mini capricorn goats cheeses cut in half, served with roasted beetroots on watercress. Made a fantastic summer meal.
