Pear with Yellow Cheese

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. When reading Eulalia, a pear with yellow cheese was briefly mentioned. At first glance it may sound odd or even gross, but pears and apples with a hard, slightly salty cheese can be very good. The natural sweetness of the fruit compliments the sharpness of the cheese quite nicely. You can make this recipe with thin slices of cheese or shredded cheese, so use whatever you have on hand.

Pear with Yellow Cheese

Cook time: 10 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes

Yield: 2 servings


  • 1 Bartlett pear
  • Sharp cheddar, either shredded or thinly sliced (amount to taste)

  1. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350F.
  2. Cut the pear in half. Remove the seeds and, if desired, the hard flesh around the seeds and stem.
  3. Cover the cut faces of the pear with the desired amount of cheese. 
  4. Bake the pear for 10-15 minutes, or until the flesh is soft and the cheese is melty and beginning to brown.
