Yields4 ServingsPrep Time5 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time15 mins

Juicy and delicious, pears are a popular fruit during the summer months. Grilling them on GrillGrates adds a layer of complexity to their flavor that is enhanced with a good Gorgonzola cheese...

 4 Pears
 Canola oil spray
 6 oz Gorgonzola Cheese crumbled
 2 Tablespoons softened butter
 Honey (we used a spicy habanero honey)
1

Preheat your grill to 600-700F at the GrillGrate surface.

2

Slice the pears in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon to create a small “cup” to hold the Gorgonzola cheese.

3

Combine the Gorgonzola crumbles with the softened butter in a small bowl

4

Lightly spray the pears with canola oil on the flesh side.

5

Place the pears face down on the GrillGrates to sear them. After two minutes twist them 45 degrees to achieve the coveted crosshatch pattern.

6

After two more minutes remove the pears from the grill. Reduce the heat to low or 400F

7

Fill each pear with approx. 2 tablespoons of Gorgonzola mixture.

8

Place pears back on the grill and close lid. Cook three minutes and remove from grill to serving dish.

9

Lightly drizzle honey over the pears to finish.
