  • Four ounces sliced pancetta
  • One ripe Asian pear or Bosc Pear, seeded and cut in 1/4-inch slices
  • Four-ounce packet of plain goat cheese
  • One bunch of fresh thyme


  1. Preheat the oven broiler. If the broiler rack is adjustable, set it in the middle slot.
  2. Place the pancetta slices on a baking sheet that fits in the broiler, making sure to space them apart so they are not touching.
  3. Broil until brown and crispy, about three to five minutes.
  4. Remove the pancetta from the oven. Transfer the crisp rounds to a serving platter.
  5. Put a small spoonful of goat cheese in the middle of each crisp, lay a slice of pear on top of the cheese and garnish with a small sprig of thyme. Serve while the pancetta is still warm.
