A funny name for a delicious treat. A fun and easy finger food.


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Arrange pancetta slices on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a paper towel-lined wire rack to drain. Let stand 10 minutes or until crisp.
  3. Core pear with an apple corer. Cut pear crosswise into 12 thin rings. Arrange on a serving platter. Top evenly with pancetta and goat cheese; sprinkle with pepper. Drizzle with honey just before serving.

OMG! Just loved it! I reduced it, to make a small amuse-bouche for DH and myself. Outstanding flavor and texture, and just WOW with the presentation! I know that I'm fixing these for my friends the next time we get together. So glad I found this - really enjoyed this rendition of fruit and cheese, two of my faves! Thanks for sharing, Adopted Parisian!

Great combo, all individual flavors we love. The name might leave something to be desired, but the dish does not. I used 4 slices of crisped prosciutto, maybe about a fourth of the cheese (just sprinkled it on) and omitted the honey (personal preference) The two of us ate this as an appetizer, but I am sure you could stretch it to 4 people. I bet this would be even better on slices of green apple, which would give it crisp, tart and less sweet (it would also be sturdier picking it up). You can't go wrong with this yummy appetizer!
