Sometimes it really is true; the most simple of recipes really are the best tasting recipes. And when these simple recipes include the best flavors complemented by each other the work is done for you in creating the best treat.
So if you haven't paired pears, ham and Swiss cheese together then you don't yet know what you are missing. But we encourage you to give it a try. It's a step above your basic grilled cheese, which we also love!
Super simple: take some good rustic bread, smear the bread with some good Dijon mustard, layer with ripe sliced pears, a slice or two of some ham and a slice or two of Swiss cheese and then lightly spread some butter on the outside pieces of bread and cook in a panini press until melted. If you don't have a panini press...cooking them the old fashioned way on the stovetop in a skillet works just great too.
So good, so easy, so perfect for a lazy, rainy weekend afternoon.
