ingredients (serves 2 for lunch or 4 for starter)

4 crumpets
2 very ripe pears
150 grams strong Stilton
chopped fresh parsley
rapeseed oil (or use extra virgin olive oil instead)
freshly ground black pepper


Pre-heat the grill on a medium setting.  Place crumpets on a grill pan, quick tip: put baking paper or foil on grill pan to save washing up as the melted cheese goes everywhere.

Wash and peal the pears then slice into quarters lengthways. Remove the core and chop into pieces.  Add a layer of pears onto the crumpets and sprinkle with parsley. 

Add pieces of Stilton and drizzle with rapeseed oil.  Season with freshly ground black pepper.

Place under the grill for about 7 - 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Serve on a bed of watercress
