Grilled pears with your grilled food is surprisingly good!

·  2 tablespoons honey mustard

·  1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

·  1 teaspoon lemon juice

·  1/4 teaspoon salt

·  1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

·  2 ripe pears

·  2 ounces Brie cheese, cut into 4 slices

·  4 teaspoons chopped pistachios, toasted


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat an 8-inch-square (or similar-size) metal baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk mustard, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Cut pears in half lengthwise, hollow out the core and slice a small piece off the other side so they will lie flat when served. Brush all over with the mustard glaze and place cored-side down in the prepared pan.
  4. Bake the pears for 30 minutes, basting halfway through with the glaze. Gently turn them over, baste again and place a piece of Brie in the hollow of each pear. Bake until the pears are tender and the Brie is slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle each pear half with 1 teaspoon pistachios.

Tips & Notes

  • Tip: To toast seeds and chopped, small or sliced nuts (pages 30, 40, 63), cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
