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.
