About this Recipe

Last year I made my own canned poached pears, and we are still finding fun ways to eat them throughout the year.


4 Flatbread (Naan bread works well, too)
1 cup premade basil pesto
1 large onion, chopped
4 oz brie
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp butter
2 poached pears


Pre-heat oven to 375.
In a medium frying pan, heat oil and butter on medium high heat. Add onions. Cook until onions turn brown and start to carmelize.
On a cookie sheet, place flatbread (plain Naan bread works well for this as well).
Spread 1/4 cup of pesto on the surface of each flatbread.
Top with thinly sliced pieces of brie, carmelized onions, and thin slices of poached pears*.
Bake for 10-15minutes until brie starts to melt.

*You can purchase the poached pears pre-made at the store, or make your own. For my poached pears I used water (though you can use juice or wine for your liquid if you prefer), cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, honey, and a little ginger. Simply put, you just boil halved/cored pears in this infusion and they take on the flavour. These are great to have on hand for sweet & savoury dishes
