French baguette, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
olive oil or melted butter
pears - peeled, cored and sliced
crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
This bread was good. I made the following changes: I used unmelted butter and then mixed the cheese along with 1TBSP of whiskey and the walnuts into a spread. I skipped toasting the bread, topped it with the pears then spread on cheese mixture. I baked these at 425 for 10 minutes. They came out perfect! I made them for a party and they were gone in less than 20 minutes.
Surprisingly non-descript, and I was so excited to try them, too. Maybe a touch of honey? I did use my oil-mister for the first time and the bread came out perfect, though. So, there will be bruschetta in the near future.
What a delish crostini! The flavors go together so well. Next time I'll make the pear slices a little thicker- I absolutely love how the pear just melts in your mouth.
Sharp cheese and sweet pears combine to create an amazing appetizer or side. And so simple!
Very Good. Brought to a party and everyone loved it. Rather unique, and perfect for the fall! Followed the directions exactly.
wonderful on the pallet, pears and gorgonzola are heavenly togather
This was really good. We made it exactly as the recipe says and even the kids ate it.
I used Naan (indian flat bread) instead of Fr. bread. Saute the pears with sweet yellow onion slices in butter until limp. Then arrange on the flat bread with gorganzola-infused brie and sugar glazed walnuts (or pecans/almonds, etc). Amazing, especially with a nice wine!
