Honey Grilled Pear, Brie & Rosemary Crostini

I'm always looking for quick and easy party appetizer recipes to share with friends and this one sure did hit the mark! I made these for a friend's recent birthday celebration and yes... they're as good as they sound!

A short ingredient list and easy prep make these the perfect party time appetizer while at the same time being simple, elegant and super tasty!


1 French baguette, sliced 1/2 inch thick
Brie cheese, thinly sliced, rind removed
2 pears, halved, cored, and thinly sliced
Fresh rosemary


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and grill to medium-high heat. This is one of those recipes where it's key to have all your ingredients prepped before you start. While everything is pre-heating this is the perfect time to slice your pear and remove the rind/slice your brie. 

Brush pear slices liberally with honey. Grill until soft and marked nicely with the grill grates - just a few minutes per side.

Place bread slices in a single layer on a cookie sheet, top with sliced brie, bake in oven for about 5 minutes or until the brie is melted.

Pull bread from oven, top each slice with grilled pear, arrange on serving dish and sprinkle with fresh rosemary... now, didn't I tell you that was easy? Best served while hot!
