Pancetta crisp with apple and gorgonzola!

Start Mom off with this elegant appetizer for her brunch on  Mothers Day! Show Mom you appreciate her with breakfast in bed! While she is enjoying her first course of "Pancetta crisp" you can make her main course!

Pancetta Crisp with apple and Gorgonzola

12 thin slices pancetta (about 1/3 lb.)

2 Granny Smith Apple (pear)

1/2 (4-oz.) Gorgonza crumbled (can substitute feta or blue cheese)

Freshly cracked pepper

Agave (can substitute honey)

Garnish: fresh thyme sprigs (optional)


1. Arrange pancetta slices in a single layer on an silpat/parchment lined baking sheet.

2. Bake at 450° for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a paper towel-lined wire rack using a spatula. Let stand 10 minutes or until crisp.

3. Core apple with an apple corer. Cut apple crosswise into 12 thin rings. Drizzle with a little lemon juice, to keep them from browning. Arrange on a serving platter. Top evenly with pancetta and Gorgonzola; sprinkle with pepper. Drizzle with a tiny amount of agave just before serving. Garnish with fresh Thyme. Enjoy!
