Our bacon-wrapped pears recipe is pretty easy to follow, and it only calls for a few basic ingredients. To get started preheat your oven to 375°F, and then bake 12 slices of bacon for 8 to 12 minutes. Now, while we all love really crispy bacon, you don’t want your bacon to get too crispy—once the bacon is cooked, you’re going to cut each slice in half and wrap your pear slices with the halves. If the bacon is too crispy, it won’t wrap around the pear slices properly. Also, make sure to cut your pears into eight slices, and brush lemon juice on each slice as well. Serve everything at room temperature.
