It’s time to continue the holiday recipe mania with a little something to wow your friends at the next Christmas party. Pears are perfect for this time of year, and this dish makes a great appetizer, side dish or dessert. My dad even served them for breakfast over Thanksgiving weekend.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need: (Serves 24, so adjust accordingly!)
1/2 pound goat cheese
1/4 cup fresh mixed herbs, chopped (I used parsley, thyme, and chives)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Salt and pepper
12 small pears
2 tablespoons honey
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix the goat cheese, herbs, and 2 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper to taste.
Halve the pears, scoop out the seeds and cores, and place them on a baking sheet. Stuff each pear half with about a tablespoon of the cheese/herb mixture.
Drizzle some olive oil over the pears and season them with salt and pepper. Bake until the pears are tender, or about 30 minutes. Place the pears onto a pretty platter, drizzle with the honey, serve and enjoy!
I hope you give this dish a try this holiday season. It’s unique, super easy and sure to dazzle your party guests!
