Pear and Cheese Bundles
- Total Time
Pear slices replace the typical bread in these savory bundles made with Parmesan cheese.
fresh lemon juice½ tsp, from 1/2 of lemon
pear(s)2 pound(s), Comice or Bartlett variety, (about 3 pears)
parmesan cheese3 oz, chunk, at room temperature
honey mustard2 tsp
chives⅛ cup(s), fresh, (about 18)
- Combine the water and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Peel the pears, then halve them lengthwise and cut out the cores. Place each half flat-side down and cut lengthwise into 6 slices.
- Drop the slices into the lemon water as you cut them, to prevent browning. Use a cheese plane or vegetable peeler to shave the cheese into 18 paper-thin slices.
- Each shaving should be about 1 inch wide and 3 inches long. Cut each pear slice in half lengthwise. Place a cheese shaving on top of one half, then spread the cheese with 1/8 teaspoon of the honey mustard.
- Top with the other pear half slice; tie into a bundle with a chive. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 18 bundles.
