This is an interesting side dish to serve at your next barbecue. Pears are barbecued, then filled with a crumbled blue cheese mixture. You can also sprinkle the pears with chopped walnuts, if desired.
You can also cook these pears under the grill.

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! - 22 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 28 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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 - 15 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
