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.



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


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 🙂
