Pear and Brie bruschetta

    15 min

    I consider this a dessert and cheese course in one! Warm pears, drizzled with honey are served with Brie cheese on slices of crunchy bread. You can use blue cheese if you prefer. Toasted hazelnuts make a lovely addition.

    Absolutely divine. So easy to make and it tastes delicious.  -  22 Jan 2014


    So pleased I found this recipe - I needed something easy to make for a group of friends and this fitted the bill perfectly. Thank you!  -  22 Nov 2011


    Stunning subtle sweetness I thought I would be adding cranberry but it didn't need it, not go to much on the butter or you maybe longer on the pan and I under grilled the bread and then partially grilled the Brie whilst on the bread. Also a very pretty dish to begin a meal.  -  31 May 2015
