Broiled Pear and Prosciutto Toasts

Ingredients

1 inch pear sliced in ⅛ thick whole slices, core removed
4 slices of prosciutto

Preparation

1
Preheat the broiler on high and set the oven rack to a high position. Lay the pear slices on a baking sheet.
2
Brush them with oil on both sides and sprinkle them with salt. Broil the pears for 2-4 minutes--until the edges are crisp and the flesh is tender.
3
Smear a tablespoon of soft creamy cheese across each English muffin half. Once the pears are tender, lay one on each toast.
4
Place the toasts on the baking sheet and top each with a slice of prosciutto.
5
Broil again for 2-4 minutes, until the prosciutto and muffin edges are crispy. Serve warm!
