Ingredients

  • 1 8-oz Hatfield Ham Steak, finely chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1 8-oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 15 1/4-oz can Bartlett pears in heavy syrup, drained and finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled (3 oz.)
  • 1/4 cup green onion, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned pepper
  • 1 loaf French bread, OR 3-4 French sandwich rolls
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Green onion, slices, for garnish

Directions

  1. Combine ham, cream cheese, pears, cheese, onion and pepper; refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow flavors to blend. Slice French bread into 1/4-inch slices. Place in single layer on a baking sheet. Brush both sides of each slice with some of the olive oil. Bake at 375 degrees F for 6 minutes per side or until toasted and golden brown. Remove from oven to cool on wire rack. When ready to serve, spoon about 1 tablespoon ham mixture on each toasted bread slice. Garnish with green onion slices.
