These delicious bites are a sweet and savoury party appetizer idea that your guests will love! Made with pear and brie, along with walnuts, arugula and a balsamic glaze, you will love how simple these are to make and to eat. 



  • 2 pears (ripe but not too soft)
  • 8 ounces brie cheese
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • Approx. 1/4 cup raw walnuts, chopped
  • Balsamic glaze, to drizzle
  • Pinch of salt and pepper, to season


  1. Slice pears into quarters and remove seeds and stem. Cut quarters into roughly half-inch cubes.
  2. Cut brie cheese into similar-sized (rind on), half-inch cubes.
  3. Take a small four-inch skewer and add a piece of pear, a bundle of arugula (bunched and folded in half), and then a piece of cheese onto it.
  4. Set skewer aside and repeat until all ingredients are used up.
  5. Gently press a few pieces of chopped walnuts onto the brie cheese so that they stick.
  6. Drizzle balsamic glaze, sprinkle salt and pepper. Enjoy!
