Description

Sweet, salty, and very, very cheesy.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices Sturdy, Grainy Wheat Bread
  • 3 Tablespoons Raspberry Preserves
  • 8 slices Red Pear, Thinly Sliced
  • 8 slices Cooked Bacon
  • 4 slices Muenster Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter

Preparation

Preheat griddle or panini press to medium-high heat.

Assemble 2 sandwiches in this order: bread, 1 1/2 tablespoons preserves, 4 slices pear, 4 slices bacon, 2 slices cheese, bread.

Spread butter on the top and bottom of the sandwich and grill for 4-8 minutes, or until cheese is melted and top is golden brown.

Note: my slices of bacon were pretty small and thin, which is why I used 4 on each sandwich (gulp). I think 2 regular slices per sandwich would be plenty.

Fantastic! Made it with bacon and also without bacon for a family member who doesn’t like bacon, both ways are delicious!

These are amazing! As simple as a grilled cheese sandwich, but fancy enough to serve company, and delicious enough to make everyone want seconds and thirds. So glad that I tried it! :)

This was a very tasty sandwich. My family all thought I was crazy when I put this on the menu for the week but it was a nice change from the ordinary Grilled Cheese Sandwich. The raspberry preserve made it for me!

This was fabulous! I was a little unsure, but the photo looked so delicious that I gave it a go. So glad I did! I did not find the pear distracting at all. Everything came together in a lovely symphony of flavors. And I must say, it made me feel quite fancy even in my yoga pants waiting on laundry to finish so I can fold! :)

Very tasty! Even if you are going from memory and (oops) forget the bacon and butter!
