Little Bites: Recipe

What on earth could taste better than crispy Italian bacon?? I mean, really?? Well, yes...crispy Italian bacon with soft creamy goat cheese and fig jam? Absolutely!

I made this for a dinner party and they were gone before I could blink. I made the cups a few hours in advance so that they could cool and be easy to eat. What a fun little pop-em!

Crispy Pancetta Cups with Figs and Goat Cheese
makes 24 cups

24 slices of pancetta
6 oz. soft goat cheese
1/2 cup fig jam
6 oz. dried figs, each one cut into 6 little pieces
Pam Cooking Spray
2 12-hole mini muffin tins

Preheat oven to 450.

Spray all 24 muffin holes with cooking spray and place a slice of pancetta into each one so the edges are a bit flouted.  Bake about 20 minutes or until edges look like they're about to begin to burn. Remove and let cool in the tins about 10 minutes. Remove and cool completely on wire racks.

Using a small spoon, line the bottoms of each cup with fig jam and add two pieces of dried figs to the cup. Top with a small spoonful of goat cheese. Serve.
