Pear and stilton toast – 4 ingredients

Posh cheese on toast, that’s what this is. It’s also one of the yummiest things I’ve knocked up in 5 minutes in a long time.

Kipper and I had been out somewhere, I can’t even remember where but it must have been someone’s house, because she’d been grazing all morning on snacks and bits and bobs. So when we got home at lunchtime, she didn’t really want anything much to eat. I, on the other hand, was pretty peckish, but if Kipper wasn’t eating it meant that my ‘lunch break’ (ha!) was going to be even shorter than usual.

Cheese on toast then, I thought. Fast, filling and tasty. But as I went to the fridge I spotted the stilton poised, alluringly, on the shelf. Stilton toast, even better 🙂

It didn’t take much in the way of further inspiration to add a pear under the cheese. And oh boy – taste sensation! Why have I never made this before?!

This really is delicious and super-fast to make. I sliced the pear and stilton while the toast was in the toaster. Then a moment or two of assembly and flash it under a hot grill. Then – and this is the important bit – TUCK IN to your incredibly delicious pear and stilton toast! Yum yum yummy yum yum.

An additional bonus is that Kipper doesn’t really like blue cheese, so I got to eat all my lunch myself 🙂 She doesn’t know what she’s missing. I suspect it’s only a matter of time before even my posh cheese on toast isn’t safe from small fingers though. Hey ho.

This was a fabulous autumn lunch, but would make a substantial weekend breakfast or a tasty tea, too.

This makes 2 slices of pear and stilton toast. Enough for one hungry mummy. Mmmm.

One more thing. If, like me, you eat lots of toast, and like to have it done ‘just so’, you might like this amazing toaster with glass sides. We’ve had ours for months, and I still get a mild thrill watching the toast brown and then popping it up at the point of perfection. Hmmm. Maybe I really should get out more…
