Campfire Pear Crumble with Le Gruyère®

This simple campfire crumble is a wonderful way to start a day in nature. Begin by building a fire and making a big pot of coffee. The pears can be cooked in a cast iron skillet over the coals or a grate over flames. It’s very forgiving, and a sprinkle of granola gives it the satisfying crunch of a classic crumble. The buttery, spiced pears and nutty oats of the granola pair perfectly with Emmi Le Gruyère® AOP.
