This grilled Brie and pear sandwich is dedicated to National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, which happens every April 12, thanks mostly to bored food bloggers and cheese-industry marketing cartels. I'm looking at you, Wisconsin.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Generously butter one side of each slice of bread.

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat.

  • Place bread slices butter-side down into hot skillet. Arrange Brie cheese slices on top of each piece of bread. Sprinkle thyme and cracked black pepper over the top.

  • Spread pear slices in a single layer over the Brie cheese on one slice of bread and top with a pinch of salt.

  • Flip the slice of bread without pears onto the slice of bread with the pear slices. Continue cooking sandwich until cheese and pear are heated through and cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cut into halves.
