Rosemary Roast Pork, Caramelized Pears & Goat Cheese Panini

Li’l ol’ Panini Happy made it onto TLC.com!

The Steamy Kitchen CookbookAs you may know, Jaden Hair from Steamy Kitchen recently launched a new blog on the TLC website – Steamy Kitchen on TLC. Between this and the launch of her fabulous new cookbook last month, The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook, she’s quite the busy lady these days!  Jaden’s new blog provides the voice of simple, delicious cooking on TLC. So when she approached me about creating a panini recipe for her readers I, of course, was more than happy to oblige.

So, what did I make? Something sweet and savory and a little bit indulgent – Rosemary Roast Pork, Caramelized Pears & Goat Cheese Panini. Here’s what I said about them:

“I recently found myself daydreaming a bit about pears – one of the highlights of autumn that I most look forward to – and how I might build sweet and savory panini around them. Then the idea hit me: I’d caramelize the pears until they were tender and extra-sweet, layer in medallions of succulent pork tenderloin roasted with rosemary, finish it off with creamy-tangy goat cheese and grill it all on nutty multigrain country bread.  Trust me when I tell you the taste reality was better than any daydream.”

Ready to dig in? You can find the recipe here on Steamy Kitchen on TLC.

Next week: You know I’ll have some leftover Thanksgiving turkey panini ideas for you!
