OMG, these are so delicious! They are wonderful appetizers for a party, but please don’t wait for a party to try them. Make them for yourself. You deserve this tasty treat!!
For the recipe below I didn’t use any amounts/measurements. Just cook enough pancetta rounds for pear rounds, and vice versa… or you may have to eat the remaining pieces (like I did).
For the pears, be sure to select a pear that is firm and crisp, such as a Bosc or Forelle.
The Boar’s Head Pancetta comes in perfect rounds for this recipe. I absolutely love the Boar’s Head Pancetta and use it all the time instead of regular bacon. It’s seriously delicious. I requested it be sliced “medium” and that worked out perfectly.
