    8 Funsize Pears

    200g pack Brie

    4 Ciabatta Rolls

    40g Butter

    40g Light Brown Soft Sugar

    30g Walnuts

    70g bag Rocket Leaves

    35ml Balsamic Vinegar


    Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.

    Bake the rolls in the oven for 10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, cut the pears into quarters and remove any pips.

    Sauté them in a large frying pan with the butter and sugar for about 5 minutes until they are caramelised, then add the balsamic vinegar and cook for a further 2 minutes.

    Thinly slice the brie.

    Roughly chop the walnuts then put on a tray and bake in the oven for a few minutes to crisp.

    Cut the rolls in half and top them with the brie slices.

    Return to the oven for a couple of minutes to melt.

    Serve the rolls topped with the pear slices and sprinkle with walnuts on a bed of rocket leaves.
