Description

Caramelized pear, Emmentaler (Swiss) cheese and cranberry sauce all toasted and melted together in a panini

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Pear, Cored And Sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Almond/coconut Milk
  • 6 slices Emmentaler (swiss) Cheese
  • 2 slices Rustic Bread
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Good Quality Cranberry Sauce (ideally Homemade And Not From A Can)

Preparation

Begin by caramelizing the pear slices. Place slices in a skillet over medium heat. Warm for about a minute then flip to the other side and continue to heat. Flip a few more times, allowing pear slices to soften.

Then add half of the almond/coconut milk to the skillet and allow it to bubble and boil off. Flip the pears over, add the rest of the milk and cook until pears are slightly browned and soft but still retain their shape, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Turn on your panini maker or heat a clean skillet to medium-high.
Butter the bread on the sides that will be touching the panini maker/skillet.

Compile your sandwich, adding the caramelized pear and cranberry sauce to one piece of bread (on the non-buttered side) and making sure cheese slices stay inside of the bread and don’t overhang it). Then add the other piece of bread (butter side up).

If using a panini maker, simply put the sandwich in, close the lid and cook 2-3 minutes until you have crispy grill-marked bread and the cheese is melted. If using a skillet, cook a couple of minutes on one side before flipping to the other and cooking another 2 minutes.

Continue flipping until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden-brown.

I’ve been enjoying this panini. The flavors are unique (not something I usually make) but I like how they work together. And I do think the homemade cranberry sauce is important, it’s part of what really makes the flavor (and cranberry sauce is super simple).
