  Ham, Gorgonzola, and Pear Crostini

1 pkg. (8 oz.) finely chopped ready-to-eat ham (about 2 cups)
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 can (15.25 oz.) Bartlett pears in heavy syrup, drained and finely chopped
1/3 cup (3 oz.) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

1/4 cup sliced green onion
1/2 tsp. seasoned pepper
1 loaf French bread or 3 to 4 French sandwich rolls
1/3 cup olive oil
Green onion slices for garnish

   Combine ham, cream cheese, pears, cheese, onion, and pepper; refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow flavors to blend. Slice French bread into 1/4-inch slices. Place in single layer on a baking sheet. Brush both sides of each slice with some of the olive oil. Bake at 375º for 6 minutes per side or until toasted and golden brown. Remove from oven to cool on wire rack. When ready to serve, spoon about 1 Tbsp. ham mixture on each toasted bread slice. Garnish with green onion slices. Makes 36 to 40 appetizer servings.
