Directions

  1. Spread 2 slices of bread with the mustard. Layer each with 3 slices of ham, half of the pear slices, a dash of pepper, and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Top with remaining bread. Lightly spread margarine on the outer sides of each sandwich.
  2. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Grill the sandwiches until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Cut each sandwich in half to serve.

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

Just OK

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
