Bleu Cheese Pear Bites
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 pear thinly sliced
1/2 cup frozen chopped onions
2 teaspoons lemon juice
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
Preheat the broiler on low.
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.
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.
