Spicy Pear and Ricotta Toast

Excite your taste buds with a sweet and spicy toast combo. The pears from Klug Orchards are great on their own but this certainly kicks it up a notch.  Shop Pastured Perfect for your pepper jelly, our bakers for artisan whole grain bread, and The Cheese People for your brie. Try a flavored grapeseed oil from Wild Tree for a lighter taste than the olive oil. This toast is a knockout and makes for a great midday snack or a holiday appetizer. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz. whole grain bread, toasted
  • 3/4 oz. brie
  • ½ pear, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper jelly
  • 1 teaspoon part-skim ricotta
  • ½ teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/16 teaspoon sea salt

Directions:

1. Toast bread to desired doneness.

2. Spread ricotta on toast. Top with brie and pears. Drizzle olive oil and pepper jelly, and add sea salt.
