This is a twist on an old classic -- ham and cheese. Adding a fresh cut pear gives the sandwich a nice, light sweetness that you won't forget.

I used honey mustard and sliced brie cheese (shredded cheese is too messy when I make melts). Tastes like a fancy cafe sandwich! Read More

I actually combined this recipe with another on here the Pear and Brie Quesadilla. I used a tortilla spread honey mustard then laid down some ham slices brie slices and pear slices and then pan seared each side. It was very flavorful and delicious. I would use this again in a heartbeat. Read More

Made these for heavy appetizers for New Year's Eve party yesterday and they were a hit. I used provolone slices instead of the mozzarella as I thought the mozzarella wouldn't have enough flavor to work with the pear. I made most with honey mustard and some with spicy brown. Read More

This is great. Variations on this like sliced apple w/ smoked gouda are fantastic. Also try mixing adobo sauce with mayo and omit the mustard for a completely different flavor sensation. Read More

This is delicious! The combination of the ham mustard and pears gives it a very flavorful and fresh taste! It is a quick and easy but very appealing alternative to just a "ham sandwich". My husband loved it! Read More

Excellent sandwich. Did not have a Panini machine....found my George Foreman to be an excellent substitute. My frying pan also does just as good without the stripes. Read More
