Apples are not the only delicious fruit in plentiful supply this time of year; Bosc pears can still be found gracing supermarket produce aisles.
There are few food combinations I love more than blue cheese and pear. I had it for the first time a few years ago at a party when not wanting to be rude I was too afraid to say to the hostess I didn't (think) I liked blue cheese when she was passing blue cheese and pear on toasts... well I loved it.
I love the blue cheese pear combination in salads, broiled on French bread slices as an appetizer and I love it in this quick and easy wrap. It makes a perfect lunch or slice each wrap into 6 bite-sized pieces, secure with toothpicks and serve as appetizers.
What is your favorite food combination? Does it change with the seasons?
Spinach, Pear, Blue cheese and Bacon Wraps
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 ounces Saga Blue cheese
3 slices center cut bacon, cooked until crispy then crumbled or thinly sliced
6 small flour tortillas, warmed
2 cups fresh spinach leaves, trimmed
2 Bosc pears, very thinly sliced
In a small bowl combine the cream cheese and blue cheese with a fork. Stir in the crumbled bacon.
Spread the cheese mixture over one side of each tortilla.
Divide the spinach between the tortillas arranging in an even layer on top of the cheese. Layer the pear slices over the spinach.
Roll the tortillas around the filling then cut diagonally to serve.
