  • 2 (8-ounce) blocks of feta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 large pear, very thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 3-4 tablespoons honey


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat and add butter. Stir in pear slices, salt, cinnamon and brown sugar, tossing well to coat. Cook for 8-10 minutes until pears are super caramely and soft. In a separate small skillet, add pecans and toast over low heat for about 5 minutes, just until fragrant. Set aside.
  • Cut both blocks of feta in half and place in a baking dish or pie plate. Brush with olive oil. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn your oven to broil and broil on high for 3-4 minutes. My plate was on the second highest oven rack, so not as close to the broiler as can be, but almost. Check after 1-2 minutes, and once the cheese is golden and bubbly on top, remove it.
  • Cover the feta with the pears (and any sauce/juice in the pan), the pecans and the honey. Serve immediately with pita chips, crackers, fruit or vegetables.
