Ingredients

  • 6 pieces bacon
  • 1 pear (asian or bosc work well with a slightly crispy texture)
  • ~2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ~1 tsp cinnamon
  • ~1 tsp smoked paprika
  • Toothpicks

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Cut your bacon into one inch pieces
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Line up the bacon pieces on the pan.
  • Place in the oven and cook for 18-20 minutes, depending on the thickness. Remove from oven and place on a paper towel lined plate and pat off any excess grease with a paper towel.
  • Slice up your pear into slices about 1/2 inch thick by 1 inch.
  • Put a piece of bacon on top of each pear slice and secure them together with a toothpick. Repeat until you are out of pears and bacon, placing the complete pieces on a serving platter. You can also make a pear sandwich, with a slice of bacon between two pieces of pear.
  • Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and paprika.
  • Next, pour a little drop of maple syrup on each piece. Or you can drizzle the maple syrup over everything, your choice.
  • Serve to your hungry guests.

  • These were such a hit at the housewarming/retirement party I went to last night. I used a bosc pear – one pear made a whole dinnerplate of appetizers.
    One recommendation – I would sprinkle the cinnamon/paprika on top of the pear before putting on the bacon. The bacon was a little hard and the spices didn’t stay put. The moist pear would do the job better.
    Otherwise, this is going into my “Make again” file for another celebration.
    Thank you for the recipe!

    • Wonderful! Thanks for sharing your experience Shelley! So glad these pear and bacon bites were a hit and will be on repeat at a later date! I like your idea for sprinkling the cinnamon and paprika on the pear before the bacon. We’ll have to try that next time. Thanks again!
