Pear and Goat Cheese Crostinis

6 comments

This is a wonderful appetizer but can also be served as dessert with a fruit & cheese tray along with a nice bottle of wine.

Ingredients:

1 loaf French Brbad
olive 0il
goat cheese (We used chevre which is soft & spreadable)
ripe pear
honey

Slice Pear into thin pieces:

Then grill over medium low heat for approx 2 minutes per side until you get some nice grill marks:

Slice bread into 1 inch slices and drizzle with olive oil , grill until crisp with hash marks (approx 2 minutes per side):

Place one slice pear onto the grilled bread:

Then spread cheese over the pear:

Place back onto grill until cheese is warm and melting as they are here on the Big Green Egg:

Drizzle with honey:

    I do love goat cheese and pear together. Now grilling them just ups the flavor-quotient. Great idea!

    Lovely crostini recipe! I think that they would go great with a fruit and cheese plate and wine like you said. :)

    I did peaches with a mint goat cheese on the grill last weekend. It was a great change of pace for summer grilling.

    These look delicious…what a great idea! I love grilling foods that you usually wouldn’t think of cooking on the grill. It’s especially nice because it keeps the kitchen cool in the summer :)

    Sounds delicious though I might sub a lighter naan for the french bread.
