So if you're in or around Harrisonbug one day and you're hungry you need to check out Grilled Cheese Mania. A friend of a friend started this company within the past month and it is BOOMING! My mouth waters just looking at the awesome sandwiches on the menu...like this one for example.
So since they've opened I've had grilled cheese on the brain and have made a few variations over the past few weeks. For one, I used pear and feta cheese...YUM! And for another I threw on some avocado with cheddar and sliced turkey, also a success.
Here's a quick grilled cheese recipe that y'all can make this week. Pair it with some tomato soup and you've got yourselves a quick, low cost autumn meal!
Bacon Pear Grilled Cheese
- Two slices of bread-your choice
- Gouda Cheese
- Sliced Bacon
- Sliced Pear of your choice
- Pesto Sauce (1 TB basil, 1 TB sugar, 2 TB olive oil)
Spread your butter on one side of each of the slices of bread. On the other side of each slice, spread your pesto sauce. Place one piece of bread on the pan and then pile on the gouda cheese and sliced pear. Grill your bacon separately and place that on as well. Be sure to have cheese touching both slices of bread, the pear and bacon should be between the two layers of cheese. Cook on medium until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
Serve your sandwich with some tomato soup. Because I love things that are simple I usually just add 1 can of campbell's soup to 1 can of milk. Then i had 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and cook on medium until the cheese is melted. Before serving I sprinkle in some parsley and basil as well.
