Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups walnuts
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 crusty baguette
  • 2 pears
  • 8 ounces goat cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice baguette into 1/2" slices and lightly coat each side with olive oil. Place on baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. 
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Fill a mixing bowl with brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg whites until frothy. Add in walnuts and toss to coat. Transfer walnuts to sugar bowl and stir to coat walnuts with mixture. Spread evenly on baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes (tossing halfway). 
  • Top each bruschetta with goat cheese, thinly sliced pear, and a sprinkling of the candied walnuts. 
  • You may find yourself with extra walnuts, but that's never a bad problem to have! 

Notes

Check your market for pre-toasted baguette slices or crostinis for a time-saver!
