Serves 8 , Flat breads cut in ½

Thinly slice the pears, remove the core out. Place in a saute pan on medium heat with a small amount of ex virg olive oil, add thinly sliced onions. Cook slow, stirring until they start to turn golden brown & the natural sugars are released. Remember low and slow

* Grill the flatbreads in grill pans, crisp up the bottom with nice grill marks. Remove flatbreads from pan. Brush with a little Ex Virg Olive Oil and sprinkle a bit of sea salt.Top with caramelized pears & onions. Add the gorgonzola, walnuts and basil. Cut into halves or quarters and serve warm☺ Makes a great compliment to a luscious green salad, and a perfect app for socializing at parties, one hand free for drinks another open for munchies! Deelish job sweetheart… you’re on your way.

    I made these last night! SOOO yummy! Only a few things: n(A) I didn’t have mayo, so I substitutedu00a0a little skim ricotta and a little NF greek yogurt, and they turned out just fine!n(B) I wasn’t sure when to add the onions…nnThey were so tasty that I’ll be making them (in minature) for my birthday party this weekend! (And the artichoke dip from your cookbook, too) Any cocktail suggestions? (Right now I’m thinking champagne with sprinkle rimmed glasses and maybe a dash of liquor – ginger, perhaps?)
