Bleu Cheese Pear Bites

Bleu Cheese Pear Bites


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 pear thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup frozen chopped onions

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • Kosher salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 slice slices pumpernickel bread toasted and each cut into quarters

  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese

  • 1/4 cup white chocolate shavings


  1. Preheat the broiler on low.

  2. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add butter. When the butter has melted add the pear slices, onions, lemon juice, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Cook until the pears are warmed through and soft but not falling apart, about 5 minutes.

  3. Place the toast squares onto a baking sheet. Lay a few slices of pears in a single layer on each toast square. Top each with the crumble blue cheese. Place under the broiler until the cheese begins to melt, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a platter, garnish each with a sprinkle of the white chocolate shavings and serve immediately.
