Salty prosciutto and pungent goat’s cheese are some of my favorite pizza toppings. I wanted to create another easy gourmet appetizer to add something a little different to the line up for Super Bowl 2014. I will, of course, have the traditional wings and chips and salsa, but I wanted something else too. Something kicked up a notch without going to too much work to get there. Really, these appetizers are so easy a….well, anyone who has prosciutto, pears, and goat’s cheese can make them. Many things are better when they come in three’s so when I saw beautifully ripened pears in the grocery store I knew I had the winning combination – a Prosciutto, Goat’s Cheese, and Pear Trio. Confession time: I made up a little plate of these and didn’t share – not a single one.
