Ingredients

Add all
  • 12

    ciabatta baguette

  • 4 oz
    (120 g)

    mild, creamy gorgonzola at room temperature

  • 2

    ripe pears, halved, cored, and peeled

  • Fresh ground pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

Place the baguette slices on a non-stick or ungreased baking sheet. Toast until lightly golden, about 10 minutes.

Remove and set aside. Spread each of the toasts with a thin layer of Gorgonzola.

Slice the pears and then top each of the toasts with them and return to the baking sheet.

Place the baking sheet under the broiler for 2 or 3 minutes, just long enough to melt the cheese and warm the pears. Garnish with fresh ground pepper.
