You might think that since it's just a dinner at my family's house that a bag of chips and salsa would do but then again you haven't met my parents! Of course they would be happy as can be to just have us there, but, at my folks house when your invited for dinner you sort of expect a feast.. a celebration of food, wine, and fellowship. Chips and salsa just wouldn't do.
That's when I decided to pretend I was on that show Chopped :) Seriously I did, and I could only use 4 ingredients.
That's when I came up with this tasty EASY recipe :)
Roasted pears filled with fig jam and wrapped with bacon. Here's what I did:
|Peel, core and slice|
|Pre-heat oven to 375|
|Place a tablespoon of fig jam in the center of pear and wrap pear with bacon.|
|Let roast for about35-40 minutes until bacon is done.|
|Place in serving dish and top with mascarpone cheese.|
|ENJOY! These were delish and gone in about 5 minutes. You could also use pancetta instead of bacon and next time I will slice the pears one more time so the bacon will wrap easier.|
