Cheddar, Pesto and Pear Sandwich

VERMONT CHEDDAR GRILLED CHEESE WITH PEAR AND PESTO
BY KIM MATURO

Ingredients
3 slices of Cabot extra sharp cheddar
1/2 Bartlett pear thinly sliced
2 tablespoons of pesto (homemade or if you don’t have time you can buy some)
2 slices of whole wheat miche bread

I first tasted a similar sandwich in this cute bar in Toront called Drift Bar. I was having a little lunch with a co-worker and she mentioned that I had to try this sandwich. I don’t know if it was the fact that I was hungry (because I had been traveling all morning) or it truly was the sandwich but I was hooked. The combination of cheese, pesto, and pear … mmmmm! So yummy!! When I first ate it, the sandwich was not fully pressed; the bread was lightly toasted. In my version, I have assembled the sandwich, buttered the exterior of the bread and pressed it. Voila! A fancy grilled cheese! However you choose to make it, i’m sure you’ll enjoy it. – Kim
