Open Faced Sandwich


In a large skillet add brown sugar and butter; cook over low heat until sugar dissolves and mixture is bubbly - approximately 1 –2

minutes. Add salt and nutmeg. Increase heat to medium; add pears and cook for approximately 10 minutes, stirring constantly.n Remove from heat and set aside. Preheat oven to broil. Spread butter equally onto bread slices. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet; broil until toasted. Turn bread over and toast other side. In a medium bowl combine arugula and shallot slices. Drizzle with oil and vinegar; sprinkle with pepper; toss to evenly coat. Place a slice of Blue Cheese on each bread slice. Divide arugula mixture evenly on top of Blue Cheese, then with prosciutto slices. Top with caramelized pears and serve.
