Honey Stuffed Goat Cheese Truffles Crusted with Bacon & Pistachio

This canapé was one of a few that I made for my first official catering experience which is a story in itself. Unfortunately this one never made it to the event due to time constraints.

I found that the creamy cheese was a little overwhelming and the addition of honey in the center made for a nice sweet surprise.
