  • 1    medium pear, Bartlett, very ripe
  • 1    tablespoon honey
  • 6    shelled hazelnuts, peeled, coarsely chopped
  • 2    tablespoons uncooked old-fashioned oats
  • 1    teaspoon butter
  • 4    teaspoons unpacked brown sugar
  • 2    tablespoons pear nectar


Preheat grill. Peel, halve and core pear. Cut a small slice off the rounded side of each pear half so halves won’t wobble on grill. Set pear halves on the grill, flat side down; brush with honey. Grill 10 minutes on each side, brushing occasionally with honey. While pears are grilling, make filling. In a small pan, stir together hazelnuts and oats over medium heat until lightly toasted. Stir in butter until it melts. Remove from heat; stir in sugar and nectar. When pears are hot and tender, spoon filling into centers and serve.
