Grilled Pear, Bacon & Cheese Sandwiches

with Lemony Arugula & Pecan Salad

Upgrade your run-of-the-mill grilled cheese by adding sweet pear and nutty gouda to the mix. You’ll cook the pear until lightly softened, then layer it onto sourdough slices along with gouda and cheddar. Toast in a buttery pan until golden and melty, and serve with a lemony arugula and pecan salad on the side (all in a quick 20 minutes!).

Instructions

Prep
1

• Wash and dry produce. • Quarter, core, and thinly slice pear. Halve, peel, and finely chop half the shallot (all for 4 servings). Quarter lemon.

Cook Pear
2

• Heat a drizzle of oil and 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in a large pan over medium heat. Add pear, shallot, honey, juice from one lemon wedge, ½ tsp sugar (juice from two wedges and 1 tsp sugar for 4), and a pinch of salt. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until pear has softened, 5-7 minutes. • Turn off heat; transfer pear to a small bowl. Stir in juice from one lemon wedge (two wedges for 4). Wash out pan.

Heat pan used for pear over medium-high heat. Add bacon; cook, turning occasionally and adjusting heat if browning too quickly, until crispy, 6-10 minutes. Turn off heat; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Once cool enough to handle, roughly chop. Wipe out pan.

Assemble Sandwiches
3

• Evenly layer half the sourdough slices with gouda and as much pear as you like. Top with cheddar and remaining sourdough slices to form sandwiches.

Add bacon along with gouda, pear, and cheddar.

Toast Sandwiches
4

• Melt 1 TBSP butter in pan used for pear over medium heat. Once hot, add sandwiches and push around in pan until butter has absorbed. (For 4 servings, work in batches or use a second pan, using 1 TBSP butter for each batch.) Cook until bread is golden brown and cheese is slightly melted, 4-6 minutes. • Add another 1 TBSP butter to pan, then flip sandwiches and push around again until butter has absorbed. Cook until bread is golden brown and cheese is fully melted, 4-6 minutes.

Make Salad
5

• While sandwiches are toasting, in a large bowl, whisk together juice from one lemon wedge, 2 TBSP olive oil, ¼ tsp salt, and pepper. (For 4 servings, use juice from two wedges, 4 TBSP olive oil, and ½ tsp salt.) Add arugula and pecans. Toss to thoroughly coat arugula.

Serve
6

• Halve sandwiches on a diagonal. Divide sandwiches and salad between plates. Serve.

Bacon is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 145°.
