Baked pear wedges with cheese and serrano ham

Baked pear wedges with cheese and Serrano ham

Makes 12

2 ripe pears, washed
6 slices of Serrano ham, halved lengthways

12 small pieces of blue cheese or Camembert

Balsamic syrup, to serve (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas mark 4 and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the pears in half, then cut each half into three wedges and trim away the core from each wedge.
  3. Lay one piece of the Serrano ham flat on a work surface, then place one pear wedge on one end. Top with one piece of blue cheese or Camembert.
  4. Roll the pear and cheese up in the Serrano ham and secure by pushing a cocktail stick through. Place on the prepared baking tray and repeat with the remaining ham, pears and cheese.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the ham is crisp and the pear wedges are soft. Drizzle with a little balsamic syrup, if desired.
