Sauteed Pears with Bacon and Mustard Dressing
3-4 medium Bosc pears, sliced into 4-6 pieces, and seeds removed
3 thick slices of apple smoked bacon, cut into 1 inch squares
1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 Tbsp whole grain mustard
4 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese or goat cheese (optional)
Slice and de-seed the pears and set aside.
Cut bacon into 1 inch squares.
Cook bacon until golden and slightly crispy.
Remove bacon from grease. Place on paper towel to soak up extra grease.
Keep enough grease in the skillet to cover the bottom with about 1/4 inch.
Place pears into bacon grease and cook on medium heat until all sides of the pears are cooked.
Remove pears and place onto plate or serving dish.
Whisk dressing ingredients and pour over the pears.
Add bacon over the top of pears, and then the cheese crumbles.
