DIRECTIONS

  • Trim the bread to oval shapes a little larger than the pears, and thinly butter one side of each slice.
  • Peel the pears and halve them lengthwise- scoop out the cores using a teaspoon.
  • Cut a thin sliver off the rounded side of each pear half to make it stand level.
  • Heat the grill to high.
  • Put the pear halves in a pan of water with the lemon juice, and bring to the boil.
  • Remove the fruit with a slotted spoon, or tip into a sieve to drain; pat dry.
  • Place a pear half, cut side up, on each bread slice.
  • Cover with cheese slivers, making sure no cheese hangs over the edge.
  • Place the pears, still on the bread, in the grill pan, and grill until the cheese bubbles.
  • Place each pear on a small warmed plate, garnish the narrow end of each pear with watercress and serve at once.
