Get fancy this Valentine's day with this wood-fired appetizer. Sweet grilled pears are grilled and loaded atop crusty baguette slices, a whipped honey cheese and drizzled with a balsamic reduction.

Ingredients

  • 1 baguette
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups balsamic vinegar
  • 8 oz feta cheese
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 4 Tbsp honey
  • 4 grilled pears, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt and Black Pepper, to taste
  • 1 baguette
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups balsamic vinegar
  • 8 oz feta cheese
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 4 Tbsp honey
  • 4 grilled pears, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt and Black Pepper, to taste

Preparation

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Cut baguettes into 1/4" slices. Brush both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Place onto a baking sheet and bake in Traeger for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool completely.

Place pear slices directly on the grill grate. Grill for 2 minutes, flip and grill on the other side for another 2 minutes.

Bring the balsamic vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan. Lower heat to medium and simmer until slightly reduced, about 15 minutes. Let cool.

Combine feta, cream cheese and honey in a food processor. Process until very smooth, scraping down sides if needed.

Smear whipped honey cheese mixture onto cooled crostini and top with a grilled pear slice.

Drizzle with reduced balsamic and serve. Enjoy!
