This simple recipe showed up in my inbox this morning, and it struck me as a simple but elegant little hors d'Ouvres for service anytime, but perhaps in autumn most of all. Thought I'd share. Of course, though its rather specific about which apple and which cheese to use, I wouldn't hesitate to substitute though a softer cheese that melts too efficiently might not be advisable.
16 thin slices of pancetta
1 Pink Lady apple—peeled and cut into 16 wedges
3 ounces Manchego cheese, sliced 1/4 inch thick and cut into 2-by-1/2-inch sticks
Sixteen 2-inch rosemary sprigs or toothpicks, for skewers
Preheat a grill pan. Arrange the pancetta slices on a work surface and place an apple wedge and a cheese stick in the center of each slice. Wrap the pancetta around the filling and secure with a rosemary sprig or toothpick.
