PARAGUAYOS – HONEY ROASTED SERVED WITH SWEET GORGONZOLA AND THYME

DSCN0748They were relatively unknown until recently but  once you’ve tried one, you can’t forget how sweet, fresh, juicy and firm they are. I though baking them with honey will make a great accompaniment with any sort of blue cheese, I choose sweet Gorgonzola.

INGREDIENTS

8 Paraguayos

2 tablespoons of honey

200g sweet Gorgonzola

1/2 Baguette thinly sliced and baked in the oven

Sprigs of thyme

METHOD

1- Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees.  Lightly grease the baking pan with butter.

2- Place the Paraguayos into the baking pan and drizzle with honey.

3- Bake for 15 minutes, or until the paraguayos are tender.  Set aside to cool.

4-  Once they are cold take the Paraguyos aside and peel the skins with your hands (this is a very easy process).

5-The paraguayos make a lot of juice.  Reduce the juice to half and then put the Paraguayos back into it.  Put them in the fridge to marinate for 24 hours.

6- Serve the Paraguayos with slices of Gorgonzola cheese, thin slices of crispy bread and sprinkle with thyme leaves.

TIP

– Decorate each Paraguayo with a sprig of thyme.
