Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Makes: about 40 flats
Serving size: 2 flats
Serves: about 20
2 medium sweet potatoes, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 pear, cored and cut into thin slices (or roughly chopped)
4 ounces Gorgonzola cheese
1/2-cup chopped pecans, toasted
Preheat oven to 450. In a large mixing bowl, add sweet potato slices and drizzle with olive, salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
Place rounds flat on a rimmed baking sheet (it works best if it’s covered with parchment paper). Roast 18 to 22 minutes, turning once halfway through. Remove from the oven and top with Gorgonzola cheese. Return to oven for 1 to 2 minutes for Gorgonzola to soften.
Remove from oven and top with pear slices and toasted pecans. Serve warm and enjoy!
