Blue Cheese and Glazed Pear Crostini



More crostini recipes? Yes! I can’t get enough of it.

This blue cheese glazed pear crostini recipe is pretty simple to prepare, as most of the crostinis recipes that I share with you guys.
This recipe is great to be served as an appetizer before dinner. But to be honest, I usually prepare it with more one or two different crostinis recipes, turning the crostinis into the main dish of the dinner.

I love blue cheese crostinis in general, but when they are made with the cheese and a pinch of sweetness, to me they became perfection. The blue cheese is a cheese that begs for some bittersweet.
Despite loving blue cheese anyway! 😝

But let's get down to business.

Blue Cheese and glazed pear crostini, makes 4 crostinis


  • 4 slices of Italian bread
  • 1 pear
  • 5,3 oz  Blue cheese
  • 3 tablespoon of sugar
  • ½ cup of water

Preheat the oven to 400 F°
Start putting the bread slices in a baking tray, and placing a slice of Gorgonzola on top of each bread slice.  Bake for 15 minutes at 350 °F.

After washing the pear, cut in half and remove the seeds.
Cut the pear from the center to the edges, leaving them in a half-moon shape. Reserve.

In a nonstick pan put the sugar and stir until it melts. At this point, add the water and keep stirring. The mixture will harden, but do not panic! Just keep stirring that it will melt again. Probably a part of it will stick to the spoon. Again, don't panic. With another spoon or a knife, you can just take it off and put it back to the pan.

As soon as it’s completely melted, turn to low heat and place each piece of the pear in the pan. Remember to glaze both sides.




When removing the pieces from the pan, already put them directly on the blue cheese crostini (now with cheese already melted).


Learn with my mistakes. I placed the pieces in a glass cutting table, but as soon as they cool a little, they hardened and the pears were totally glued to the cutting table.

So, don't do it.




I hope you liked it!

See ya!

Love, Deborah.
