Every Sunday morning, I sit down with a GIANT cup of coffee and make our menu for the upcoming week. Checking my coupons, current sales, and our home inventory, I try to stay in our budget ($80 a week) but also change it up.
This week at Harris Teeter, Bartlett Pears were in the Save Big category, and so I planned a pear sandwich. I hadn’t ever tried this combo before, but with cheese and bacon…how bad could it be?
Udi’s Whole Grain GF bread, bartlett pears sliced thin, white onion sliced thin, smoked gouda cheese, bacon, and jalapeno jelly from my auntie:
but you could use any mild red pepper jelly…or beg my auntie to send you a jar. This stuff is the jam!
Make your sandwich!
3. Smoked Gouda
4. White Onion
5. Bartlett Pears
6. Bacon! (I use Boar’s Head – gluten free)
7. Another slice of smoked gouda
8. Quick swipe of pepper jelly on your top slice of bread
and you’re ready to press!
I don’t have a panini press, so I just use my George Foreman that I have literally had for…TEN YEARS!! My parents bought it for me my freshman year of college, and I made MANY a late night grilled cheese on that baby!
YUM! Pear and Gouda Grilled Cheese with Kale Chips on the side.
Pears belong on sandwiches! This sammie was smoky, sweet, crunchy…DELICIOUS!
Satisfying supper enjoyed on my salad plate
I even put the left over pear on my turkey sandwich for lunch!
I hope everyone has a great Tuesday! It’s a marathon work week, and 1/8 of the way through! But I’ll be back tomorrow with a breakfast that I am IN LOVE with..here’s a hint:
