Broiled Pear and Prosciutto Toasts

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!

Ready In: 10 mins

Yields: 4 toasts


  • 2  English muffins, halved
  • 1  pear, sliced in 1/8 inch thick whole slices core removed

  1. Preheat the broiler on high and set the oven rack to a high position. Lay the pear slices on a baking sheet.
