Description

This grilled cheese sandwich is stuffed with bacon, pear slices, and raspberry preserves for a salty-sweet combo that is simple to make and so addicting.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 slices sturdy, grainy wheat bread
  • 3 tablespoons raspberry preserves
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red pear
  • 8 slices cooked bacon
  • 4 slices Muenster cheese
  • 12 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat griddle or panini press to medium-high heat.
  2. Assemble 2 sandwiches in this order: bread, 1 1/2 tbs. preserves, pear, 4 slices bacon, 2 slices cheese, bread.
  3. Spread butter on top and bottom of sandwich and grill for 4-8 minutes, or until cheese is melted and top is golden brown.

Notes

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.
