How to make it

  • (Preheat oven to 375 degrees)
  • Wash pear thoroughly, cut into thick slices (I had about 12-14 thick slices of pear)
  • Wrap slices of bacon around each slice of pear, secure with a toothpick and place on a wire rack above a sided cookie sheet prepared with aluminum foil (for easy cleanup).
  • Place a small dollop of whipped honey on top of each pear/bacon combo. (This will create a sugary caramelized crust on top of the peppery bacon, mmmmm).
  • Place bacon wrapped pears in the oven for appx. 15 minutes, after 15 minutes flip the bacon wrapped pears over and continue to roast for another 10-15 minutes until bacon is cooked, juicy and crisp.
  • While the pears are cooking: place arugula, spinach, romaine, gorgonzola, almonds, tomatoes in a large bowl and toss.
  • When the pears are finished roasting allow them to cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Place slightly cooled pears atop your salad mixture.
  • Drizzle with reduced balsamic and basil infused olive oil and toss.
  • Reduced Balsamic
  • Place balsamic (and sugar if using it) in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Whisking constantly bring to a simmer.
  • Continue to whisk and simmer for about 15 minutes, until balsamic is thick and syrupy.
  • Cool.
  • Eat it and enjoy!
