DIRECTIONS

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