Stacked Goat Cheese Sandwich

This adult take on a classic comfort food is incredibly simple and even more delicious. The sweetness of the roasted beets pairs perfectly with the savory, creamy goat cheese. Pair it with a grown up side dish or some tomato soup and goldfish for a comforting, upscale classic.
