Spiced Pear and Pomegranate Crostini

15 Mins


12 Martin’s Sweet Party Potato Rolls, halved

2-3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

2 Large Pears, peeled and diced

1 Tablespoon Butter

3 1/2 Teaspoons Cinnamon, divided

1/4 Cup Maple Syrup

1/2 Teaspoon Balsamic Vinegar

1 Cup Pomegranate Arils

6 Ounces Cream Cheese

Serves: 8-12


Step 1

Using a rolling pin, gently flatten the roll halves. Use a knife to trim the edges so they are clean squares.

Step 2

Brush the cut side of each roll half with olive oil. Lightly toast in a 350° oven for 5-6 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat.

Step 4

Add the pears, ½ tsp. cinnamon, and syrup and saute for 3 minutes, until fragrant and warm.

Step 5

Stir in the balsamic vinegar and pomegranate arils.

Step 6

Add remaining 3 tsp. cinnamon to the cream cheese and stir to combine. Generously spread each roll with cream cheese mixture. Set aside.

Step 7

Spoon fruit mixture on top of prepared roll halves using a slotted spoon, then lightly drizzle the tops with a small amount of the syrup mixture.
