"Pear fritters are SOOO good with ham! Really with any meat where a little sweetness is a good thing. This would be good with sausages in the morning, as well! Mmmmmm..."

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the pears until caramelized; set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and pepper; form a well in the center. In a small, separate bowl beat the egg with the milk and pour into the dry ingredients; mix well.
  3. Gently fold pears into the batter.
  4. Heat deep fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Drop batter by rounded spoonfuls into hot oil, and fry until golden brown. Drain briefly on paper towels. Serve hot.

These were really good! Easy recipe but don't overcook. They only take a couple of minutes on each side.
