A super easy pear, blue cheese, and honey crostini

I didn't bite into that one… much.

This isn't the first time we've delved into combining cheese, pears, and honey. Our fearless copyeditor Caroline whipped up some grilled cheese of the same ilk a few months back. This variation focuses on a sweeter bread and a strong cheese. Cue Challah bread and blue cheese, please!

Here's what you'll need:

  • One Bosc pear (any type will do, but these keep their shape well and are a pretty brown color), sliced thinly
  • Crumbled blue cheese
  • Honey
  • A mildly sweet bread like Challah, brioche, or even King's Hawaiian, sliced fairly thickly

How to make it:

Assemble the ingredients from bottom to top: bread slices, pear slices, and about a tablespoon of blue cheese. Broil in the oven at high power for no longer than five minutes. Drizzle with honey before serving. That's it.

I paired it with some grapes and a Prosecco and Orange Mango drink. Then I pretended I was in Europe instead of my Midwestern town for a few minutes. Good times for dimes.

  1. *Ping!* Thanks for the simple and delicious looking recipe! I recently became very interested in cheese/fruit combinations and now I can troll the cheese counter for some yummy blue cheese. >:D

    • I think Stephanie at Offbeat Mama has those plates too!

      I'm no doctor, but this thread suggests that cooking helps. But again, check with yo' doc first. ;)
