Ingredients

  • 1 loaf Ciabatta sliced 1/4 inch thick, or baguette
  • 8 ounces Blue Cheese crumbled
  • 2 pears sliced
  • 1/2 cup walnuts chopped
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven by turning on the broiler.
  • Slice the bread and pop it into a toaster for a light browning.
  • Place the pieces of toast on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, smear the toast generously with blue cheese.
  • Top with a thin (lengthwise) slice of pear, crumble on some more blue cheese and place it under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly.
  • Remove the baking sheet and sprinkle on some chopped walnuts.
  • Return to the broiler just long enough to heat the walnuts. Watch closely so the walnuts don't burn. This will only take a few seconds.
  • Remove from oven and immediately drizzle with honey.
  • Serve immediately on your favorite serving platter.

Notes

This recipe works well if you can find a thin, flat loaf of ciabatta. A baguette also works well for this recipe. Just find a baguette that is thick enough to hold a sliced pear.
