Grilled Blue Cheese Pears

Recipe by  

"Had some pears that needed to be used up, so we threw them on the BBQ. They taste great with pork chops (a little like an applesauce texture!) or even to accompany BBQ buffalo wings! The blue cheese is a nice pairing!"

  3. Grill the pears on the preheated grill until soft, 10 to 15 minutes.

Nice! I love pears and blue cheese together. My pears were a bit under-ripe, so I did have to grill both sides of them to get them to the texture I wanted. I used Louisiana Hot Sauce and it gave a nice little kick. I served them on mixed greens with citrus vinaigrette and toasted pecans. Lovely! Thanks for the recipe!

I do not think the hot sauce infuses or adds to the pear. They seem disjoint.

These were so good. Not too overpowered from the cheese and they had that extra bite from the hot sauce. I just cooked mine slowly on the BBQ with the lid down and they were cooked perfectly after 15 minutes.

Wonderful! I didn't add the butter to the bleu cheese. I just brushed each pear half with the hot suace/oil mixture and added the bleu cheee to the cavity. I broiled them in my oven for about 15 minutes about 6 inches from the heat. Genius idea, Beth - Thanks

Did not use butter. Coated the whole pear. Added added 1/4 inch of dark brown sugar to top, and cooked slowly on outer area of grill. Wonderful! Thanks!

This was good. I served it with grilled shrimp. There was something lacking, but probably not due to the recipe. My pears were not very sweet, will try a sweeter variety next time. (and there will be a next time) Also, the skin charred but the pear didn't soften as much as I would've liked. Maybe my heat was too high? and maybe brush oil or mixture on the skin as well.

A very interesting dish. Very surprising, simple and delicious!!! I did them under the broiler. I used blue cheese but they would be amazing with goat cheese too!
