Ninja Foodi Prosciutto Pear Arugula Goat Cheese Tarts
These prosciutto pear arugula goat cheese tarts are the perfect appetizers for all your holiday entertaining. They look beautiful and elegant, are simple to prepare and taste amazing. Made entirely in the Ninja Foodi using the Air Crisp setting, these delicious tarts are buttery, light, and crisp. Be sure to make this at your next get-together and impress your friends and family with this beautiful mouth-watering appetizer.
Using the stackable Ninja Foodi Dehydrator Stand to increase the cooking area within the inner pot allows you to increase the batch size which comes in handy when making a number of tarts for a large group.
The buttery crisp puff pastry gives this tart a nice crunchy texture that is complemented by the rich creamy goat cheese and sweet juicy pears. Top it off with some salty prosciutto, peppery arugula and a drizzle of sweet honey and you have the ultimate sweet, and savory flavor combination.
This appetizer is also quite versatile and you can customize it to suit your needs. If you don’t have puff pastry on hand, crescent roll dough will work just as well. You can substitute the goat cheese for gorgonzola, feta, mascarpone or any spreadable cheese. You can also use maple syrup or balsamic reduction in place of the honey. If pears are not in season, apples or figs also provide an excellent flavor combination along with the other ingredients in the tart. There is so much going on that the possibilities are endless!
- Soak pears in water + lemon juice to prevent browning (if not using immediately)
- Pears not in season? Use figs or apples instead- the flavor combination will still be delectable
- No goat cheese? Try using gorgonzola, feta, mascarpone or any spreadable soft cheese on hand
- Check the tarts at 12-15 minutes- if the top tart starts to brown cover it with foil to prevent it from burning while it continues to bake. Be sure to wrap the foil around the sides of the dehydrator rack so it doesn't come off when you close the air crisp lid.
- This recipe was made using the Ninja Foodi, a programmable multi-use pressure cooker that can also steam, saute, slow cook, dehydrate, bake, broil, roast and air crisp.
- When air crisping the puff pastry, use multiple stacking trays to increase the batch size. We like the Ninja Foodi Dehydrator Stand a stackable accessory compatible with the Ninja Foodi that can be used to dehydrate foods and also increase cooking area within the inner pot.
- You can also make this recipe with an Instant Pot Duo Crisp, a multi-use programmable cooker that can pressure cook, saute, slow cook, steam, sous vide, air fry, roast, bake, broil and dehydrate.
