Pancetta Crisps with Goat Cheese and Pears

This is an entirely decadent dish. Salty, luscious, thin-sliced Pancetta is baked and then used as a base for creamy goat cheese and juicy pear wedges. It’s like a flavor explosion in your mouth. The Pancetta adds a wonderful creamy fattiness. The goat cheese is just a little tangy and sharp. And the pears add sweetness and a bit of a crunch. They’re absolutely addicting. Here’s the recipe:

Pancetta Crisps with Goat Cheese and Pears, original recipe can be found here on Epicurious

8 thin slices of Pancetta

4 oz log of goat cheese, cut into 8 pieces

1 pear, cut into 8 wedges

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bake Pancetta on a baking sheet until cooked through and a bit crispy, about 15-20 minutes. Remove the Pancetta to a paper towel lined plate. Then top each piece with a chunk of goat cheese and one pear slice. Serve immediately.

Here’s a picture of the final product.

    Great idea! I just made my first pancetta out of the Charcuterie book and have been looking for something to do with it besides pasta carbonara. Sweet pear and tangy goat cheese are great complements to the rich flavor. Can’t wait to try it!
