Toasts with sobrasada, goat cheese and pear

Have you ever heard of sobrasada?. It's Spanish raw, cured sausage made with ground pork, smoked paprika, salt, black pepper and other spices. Thanks to its soft consistency, sobrasada can be easily spread on a piece of bread. Just like chorizo sausage it's seasoned not only with salt and pepper, but also with smoked paprika which gives it very characteristic reddish colour. It's a traditional product of Balearic Islands, where it's consumed both fry and raw. In many traditional recipes a little bit of honey is added to sobrasada, so as to alleviate its very intense flavor.

Ingredients (for 3 toasts):

3 slices of baguette
3 slices of sobrasada
3 slices of goat cheese (in roll)
9 slices of pear
1 teaspoon of honey
twig of rosemary


Toast the slices of baguette in a pan or in a toaster. Spread the sobrasada slices on it and put the slices of goat cheese atop. Grill in the preheated oven until the cheese is melted. Then put a few slices of pear and a few leaves of rosemary on each toast. Pour a bit of honey atop.
