Looking for that perfect holiday appetizer to serve your guests this season? Well these gorgonzola baked pears will not only look beautiful on your table, but they are easy to make and SO delicious. I personally love stuffing these babies with smoked gorgonzola instead of regular, giving this appetizer (or dessert!) that extra burst of flavour. However, if that flavour combination is not for you, you can use any desired soft cheese in its place!
Gorgonzola Baked Pears | Level: Easy | Serves: 4 |
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
2 Pears (I prefer Bosc pears, but you can use your personal favourite)
1 Tbsp Honey
Smoked Gorgonzola (Or Preferred Soft Cheese)
4 Sprigs of Thyme
Walnuts (Optional for Garnish)
Tip: Use pears that are ripe, but not too soft.
WHAT TO DO
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Wash and slice your pears in half lengthwise. Using a spoon or melon baller, scoop out the middle of each pear. Place the pears face up on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Drizzle pears with honey and place the thyme on top. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until pears are soft and you can insert a fork through them. Add gorgonzola into the centre of each pear and top with walnuts if desired. Serve warm and enjoy!
