The French just love the combination of blue cheese and pears. Intensity and sweetness at the same time. Here with some nuts and a bit of honey. It’s delicious crispy, served warm with a green salad.
A few advices for this recipe :
Choose ripe pears, but not too much (as they will cook, we still need to feel pear consistency and don’t want too much juice to appear while cooking). The variety doesn’t matter. I tend to like Comice pears.
I think it’s better with a creamy blue cheese, thus not too strong, such as the French Bresse bleu or Fourme d’Ambert. However you can make this recipe with Roquefort, the French indeed often choose this cheese. Even if it’s not my favorite, pears are great in combination as they balance the strong cheese flavor. If you don’t find French blue cheese, you can for instance choose Stilton.
And finally dizzle with a bit of honey, it works well!
Use filo pastry or brick sheets.
I measured the quantities of the different ingredients for each Samosa to give you an indication : ½ leaf brick, 7 g blue cheese and 14 gr pears (both cut into strips it seemed to me more practical this way but do as you want), 1 walnut kernel (1/2 nut) and honey.
How to fill and fold brick / filo pastry leaves into samosa
– Cut the brick/filo pastry sheet in half – Fold the round part to get a long strip – Put the filling in a corner – Fold over the filling to form a triangle – Fold this triangle over the strip – And continue, folding the same way again and again – At the end several options Either try to stuck the remaining brick part into the samosa Or glue with a beaten egg yolk
In this recipe I suggest to serve 4 samosa per person (although there are only 3 in the picture!) and show you the folding part in photos so that you can easily make them.
