Roasted Pear w/ Blue Cheese and Jerk Seasoned Nuts

These blue cheese stuffed Bosc pears are truly the easiest appetizer ever. They're mostly hands-off and they look way fancier than they are (my personal motto when it comes to food). The combo of the salty and savory blue cheese with the subtle sweetness of the pears and the honey. With the addition of our Caribbean Jerk Seasoned Nuts adds a little heat.

Ingredients

  • 3 large Bosc pears
  • 1-2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 1/2 oz blue cheese (Danish blue cheese, crumbled)
  • 1/3 cup Caribbean Jerk Seasoned Nuts, chopped
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme, removed from the stem
  • 1-2 tbsps honey or maple syrup
  • flaky salt, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400℉.
  2. Slice the pears in half lengthwise and remove the core and seeds. Place in a cast iron skillet (or a baking dish), cut side up. Drizzle with the olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Turn the pears cut side down.
  3. Transfer the pears to the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the pears, turn them cut side up and stuff with the blue cheese, nuts and thyme. Place back in the oven for eight to ten minutes, until the cheese has melted a little.
  5. Once the pears are done cooking, transfer to a platter (or plates) and drizzle with the honey and garnish with flaky salt and extra thyme (if desired). Enjoy!
