These spiced pear and pomegranate crostinis should absolutely be on your holiday party rotation. Check out the recipe that I shared with Mass Appeal.
1 Baguette, sliced into 1 inch slices
1 tsp. Olive Oil
2 large ripe Pears, peeled and diced
1 tbs. Butter
½ tsp. Ground Cinnamon
¼ cup Maple Syrup
½ to 1 tsp. Balsamic vinegar
1 cup Pomegranate Seeds
4 ozs. Goat Cheese Crumbled
Salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 400º. Brush baguette with olive oil. Place the sliced baguette with olive oil on baking sheet. Toast in the oven for about 5-7 minutes until golden brown. In a sauté pan over medium heat melt butter. Add the diced pears, cinnamon and syrup, sauté for 3 minutes. Stir in the balsamic vinegar and pomegranate seeds. Leave a few seeds to the side to garnish. Place a spoonful of the pear mixture on the baguette, top with a crumble of goat cheese and pomegranate seeds.
