My children are not typical kids by any means, every morning before school I have to struggle to get them to eat anything a “normal” kid would eat. They hate cold cereal and truly expect me to whip up something gourmet in a matter of minutes. One thing that they love to eat are these Pear and Goat Cheese Pitas. It may sound strange as a breakfast food but I decided it beats having to make crepe batter or gourmet pancakes every morning to appease the picky palates of my children. Its not really a recipe per-say, but more of a combination of foods that throw together quickly and easily in a morning rush and offer a decent amount of nutrition. Not the type of thing I would normally post, but because I make them so often I thought I would take a picture:) I often serve these cut into cute triangles and serve them as an appetizer because they come together so fast.
- 1 ripe pear or apple
- 3-4 tbsp crumbled goat cheese
- 1 piece of pita bread ( I like the papa pita brand from Costco)
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp chopped pecans or walnuts
- Preheat toaster oven to 400
- Slice the pear or apple in thin slices avoiding the core. Spread pear over a piece of pita in a fan like pattern and cover with crumbled goat cheese. Pop in the toaster oven for about 5 minutes or until cheese begins to melt and pita is warmed through. Remove from toaster oven and drizzle with honey and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Slice into triangles with a pizza cutter and serve.
