England Recipes: Stilton Pears

England Recipes

Stilton Pears

  • 4 thin slices Rye Bread
  • 25g/1oz Butter
  • 2 firm Dessert Pears
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 50g/2oz Stilton, rind removed
  • Watercress to garnish

1. Trim the bread to oval shapes a little larger than the pears. Thinly butter one side of each slice.

2. Peel the pears and halve lengthways. Scoop out the cores using a teaspoon. Cut a thin sliver off the rounded side of each pear half to make it stand level.

3. Heat the grill to high. Put the pear halves in a pan of water with the lemon juice. Bring to the boil. Remove the fruit with a slotted spoon, or tip into a sieve to drain. Pat dry.

4. Place a pear half, cut side up, on each bread slice. Cover with cheese slivers, making sure no cheese hangs over the edge.

5. Place the pears, still on the bread, in the grill pan. Grill until the cheese bubbles.

6. Place each pear on a small warmed plate, garnish the narrow end of each pear with watercress and serve at once.
