Sharp Cheddar and Pear Grilled Cheese

Sharp Cheddar and Pear Grilled Cheese


  • 1 ripe pear, cored and sliced
  • 2 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, thinly sliced or shredded (use 4 oz. for extra cheesy sandwiches)
  • 1 tbsp. butter, softened
  • 4 slices hearty bread


Heat a griddle or skillet on medium-high heat. Butter two slices of bread on one side; place buttered side down onto the skillet. Top bread with pear slices and cheese–put a little cheese on the bread first, then the pears, then the remaining cheese. Butter remaining bread slices and place them on top of the sandwiches, butter side up.

Cook until bottom of sandwich is browned, 3-5 minutes. Flip over and cook 3-5 minutes more.
