June is dairy month. I decided I would celebrate by sharing some of my favorite “dairy” recipes today. I’m sure you have noticed by now that my family incorporates dairy products into almost every recipe we make. We are addicted to dairy products!! I hope you are too!!
I decided to start the week out with a grilled cheese sandwich. I love grilled cheese sandwiches. Something about all of that melted cheese that I just can’t get enough of. I love plain old two slices of bread with cheese between them, grilled cheese sandwiches. I also love a dolled up grilled cheese sandwich. This Grilled Ham, Cheese and Pear Sandwich happens to be one of my top two favorites. The salty of the cheese and ham and the sweet of the pear is a match made in heaven. Dunking the sandwich in strawberry or raspberry jam makes it even yummier, and more fun too!!
Get two slices of bread and butter the outsides.
Layer on a couple slices of cheddar cheese to unbuttered side of one slice of bread.
Layer on sliced pear. An apple works great too.
Layer sliced deli ham on top of pears. Top with slices of Swiss cheese. I forgot to take a picture of that step. Just don’t forget to do that step. Top sandwich with other slice of bread. Put the buttered side on the outside of the sandwich.
Grill in a skillet or on a griddle over medium heat. Grill until cheese is melted and outside is golden brown.
Celebrate dairy month with me and make this Grilled Ham, Pear, and Cheese Sandwich. It will make you smile!!
