“Here is a wonderful little snack, or brunch item, that is a testament to it's ingredients--not the maker. A broiled pear slice draped across hot molten cheese toast, then topped with crispy prosciutto. So satisfying, yet so easy to prepare. It is a perfect stand-alone, or accompaniment to creamy soups!”
4 toasts

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 English muffins, halved
  • 1 pear, sliced in 1/8 inch thick whole slices core removed
  • 4 tablespoons brie cheese (or soft creamy goat cheese)
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • oil and salt


  1. Preheat the broiler on high and set the oven rack to a high position. Lay the pear slices on a baking sheet.
  2. Brush them with oil on both sides and sprinkle them with salt. Broil the pears for 2-4 minutes--until the edges are crisp and the flesh is tender.
  3. Smear a tablespoon of soft creamy cheese across each English muffin half. Once the pears are tender, lay one on each toast.
  4. Place the toasts on the baking sheet and top each with a slice of prosciutto.
  5. Broil again for 2-4 minutes, until the prosciutto and muffin edges are crispy. Serve warm!
