Bruschetta - Roasted Cinnamon Pear
1 whole grain baguette (sliced into rounds)
2 pears (chopped, I used red bartlett)
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
2 tablespoons Maine-ly Drizzle's cinnamon pear balsamic vinegar (you can use your favorite dark balsamic)
1/2 cup mascarpone
- 1 teaspoon honey
Preheat oven to 400. Lay baguette rounds on a baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown and toasted. Set aside.
- Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and add butter. Add pears, then sprinkle with salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Allow to caramelize slowly – for about 10-15 minutes.
- In a bowl, combine mascarpone and honey. Spread on baguette slices.
Once pears are caramelized, add balsamic vinegar and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Add spoonfuls of pear mixture on top of mascarpone on baguette. These can be served warm or cold.
