Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. Simmer wine, sugar and lemon juice and mix for about 10 minutes.
  3. Cut up pears into thin half moon slices.
  4. Simmer pears in wine until liquid begins to thicken slightly. You want a syrupy consistency, not molasses.
  5. Cut half of the baguette into slices (cut at an angle gives you wider slices).
  6. Grease a baking pan to fit the slices.
  7. Smear a layer of blue cheese on top of each piece of bread.
  8. Using tongs, gently place 2 poached pear slices on each piece of bread.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes, or until bread looks lightly toasted.
