Eric's Spicy Grilled Pears

Today for Memorial Day, my hubby Eric grilled some yummy organic sausage and peppers, then a dessert of grilled pears with pepper jack cheese. They were soooo good... juicy, smoky, slightly spicy...delicious!! The recipe is for 4 pears, which feeds 4- 8 people.

Eric's Spicy Grilled Pears:
for 4 - 8 people

4 organic pears
~ 25 walnut halves
4 slices of pepper-jack cheese, each torn in half

Slice pears in half, remove stems and seeds. Place 3 - 4 walnut halves and one half slice of cheese on each pear half.

First of all, we use old school coals for BBQing. No lighter fluid on these babies! Once your coals are ready, make sure your grill grates are clean, then place pears cheese side up on grill, close top, and grill until pears are starting to brown and the cheese melts - about 10 minutes on a hot grill. That's it!! Maybe these are good when they cool, we don't know because we couldn't wait!!


  1. Wow! What a wild idea! We'll have to try that. Very cool. Good work, Eric.

  2. Looks great. I would never come up with the idea to mix cheese with pears.

  3. Oh pears and cheese are a GREAT combo! Next time you are eating cheese, add some sliced pears and apples (in lieu of bread).. you will love it!
    This is especially good because of the spicy cheese. :)


I love to hear from you! Please let me know how you changed a recipe, and how it came out. I don't do nutritional information anymore, sorry! I just provide the *free* recipes. I try to reply to comments but don't have much time these days. I hope to revamp this site eventually.... but for now I am still a working Mom and this is my hobby.
