Bruleed Pears with Prosciutto, Cranberry Sauce, and Gorgonzola

It’s been a long time since posting new recipes I have made. It’s definitely time
I shared one.

This recipe I found on… wait for it …wait for it … PINTEREST. It was super easy to make and perfect for a light appetizer that hit your taste buds all around (sweet, salty, and savory). The ingredients were easy to put together!

Recipe and photo cred found here.

INGREDIENTS

-3 fresh Asian pears ( I used what the grocery store had)
-Juice of 1 lemon
-6 tablespoons light brown sugar
-Freshly ground black pepper
-12 slices of prosciutto or Parma ham
-¾ cup cranberry sauce (found on the juice aisle)
-Crumbled goat cheese ( I used Gorgonzola)

DIRECTIONS

–Slice pears to make coin rounds from each pear. Remove the core.

— Make a lemon water bath (1:10 with water). Dip each round into bath to keep them from browning. Pat dry, place each round on a platter.

–Sprinkle ½ tablespoon of light brown sugar on top of each round. Using a culinary torch, brulée (brown) the sugar. I used a lighter, LOL.

–Sprinkle a dash of pepper and top with a slice of prosciutto.

–Spoon 1 tablespoon of the cranberry sauce on top of each.

–Sprinkle a little Gorgonzola cheese on each piece.

–Serve immediately and enjoy!

Hope you make this and enjoy as much as we did!

Bon Appetit 😉 oh, and don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest!
