I was roasting Hasselback Potatoes for our New Year’s Day Dinner, while my husband made the steaks on the grill. I’ve made a green salad with pears, walnuts and gorgonzola before (pictured below).
But, I thought I would try something a little different with the pears … roasting them!
Roasted Pears with Honey, Walnuts and Gorgonzola
Yields 4 servings
2 ripe but firm Red pears
2 ounces coarsely crumbled Gorgonzola cheese such as Stilton
1/4 cup walnut halves, chopped
Local honey for drizzling (I used Autumn Gold Honey from Winterpark)
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Slice pears lengthwise into halves. With a small sharp paring knife remove seeds from each pear. Arrange pears on baking sheet (or baking dish).
Roasted for 20 minutes until golden.
When pears are done. Pour out any liquid that has collected in the well. I’m going to make something with the juice, but I haven’t decided yet…maybe pear dressing.
Plate pear. Drizzle with honey. Top with chopped walnuts and Gorgonzola cheese.
