  • ½ Cup ricotta cheese
  • 4 thick slices of all-butter brioche
  • 1 small, sweet dessert pear, cored and thinly sliced
  • ¼ Cup runny honey, plus extra for drizzling


Spread the ricotta thickly over 2 slices of brioche and fan out the pear slices over the top. Drizzle with the honey and top with the remaining slices of brioche.

Toast in a sandwich grill for 1 to 2 minutes, or according to the manufacturer’s instructions, until the bread is crisp and golden. Cut in half diagonally and serve immediately, drizzled with extra honey.

Pear Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Pear Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
