Halve the pear and scoop out the core and seeds. Stuff the center of each halve with a spoonful of the goat cheese mixture. Wrap each halve with a slice of bacon and place it on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle the pears with a little more olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. 

Bake for 30 minutes. Drizzle with honey, if desired, and serve hot. ENJOY!
