Pear, Blue Cheese and Pork Baguettes
Crunchy crusty baguettes topped with blue cheese, brown sugar spiced pork tenderloin, thinly sliced pear, tomatoes, onion, fresh arugula and balsamic glaze... YUM!
- 1 small baguette sliced in half and hollowed out* (totalling 142 g after hollow)
- olive oil spray 3 g
- ¼ cup non-fat Greek yogurt 60 g
- 1 clove garlic minced (or a frozen cube)
- 2 Tbsp reduced fat blue cheese 15 g
- 5 oz sliced brown sugar spiced pork tenderloin recipe here (150 g)
- ¼ of a pear sliced thin (75 g)
- 1 large tomato sliced thin (130 g)
- 1 Tbsp caramelized onion 25 g
- 2 tsp balsamic glaze 8 g
Slice your baguette in half and tear out as much of the inside as possible. (Save in a ziploc and freeze to use for breadcrumbs later!) Lay your two halves on a baking sheet and spray with a mist of olive oil spray. Broil on low for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
In a small bowl, combine Greek yogurt, garlic, and blue cheese. Spread the blue cheese yogurt evenly over the two toasty halves. Now build your sandwiches, dividing the toppings between the two halves. Add a layer or pork, (out of the fridge is fine), thinly sliced pear, tomatoes, and caramelized onion (or raw onion is great if you don’t have any already caramelized!). Broil for another 1-2 minutes just until everything is warm.
Drizzle with balsamic glaze and top with arugula. Enjoy!
