We made this to go with a roasted duck at Christmas and it came out wonderfully -- I will definitely make this again! I used Bosc pears that were at their peak flavor, but still firm. I also used a good quality brie cheese. The other sides included a tart homemade orange cranberry sauce, fresh bread, and green beans. Yum!

Roasted pears with Brie and pistachios is delicious as a first course or a side with roast pork or lamb. Leave the stems on for the prettiest presentation.
4 Reviews for Roasted Pears with Brie & Pistachios
Made my own honey mustard from Dijon. My Bosc were slightly ripe so I increase cooking time slightly. My husband who does not eat pears LOVED it. I will make this again! Oh yeah I used preroasted pistachios.
I really thought these pears would be fabulous. They were good, but not great. They needed something, but I am not sure what. The pear flavor got a little lost.
I attend a large community pot-luck for Thanksgiving and it is always a challenge to come up with a dish that is different from the others, easy to make and special for the holidays. The Roasted Pears with Brie and Pistachios hit the spot. I cut the pears into quarters to provide more portions and the three dishes I brought were gone in no time. Now people are asking for the recipe....which I am not so sure if I want to share because I will need to come up with a different dish next year! (Eating Well chefs - you have a year to come up with a recipe to top the Roasted Pears!)
