Pear, Arugula and Prosciutto Grilled Cheese


Sandwich -1

The cheese withdrawals have kicked into high gear. No joke, I go to sleep dreaming about grilled cheese sandwiches, which is why I am posting this recipe. If I can’t eat it at least I can stare with longing.  I made this Pear, Arugula and Prosciutto Grilled Cheese last April for The Capitol Hill Times.  The arugula adds a peppery bite that is counterbalanced by the sweet pear.  You will never look at a regular old grilled cheese the same way again.  Since I love being miserable, there are a few links below to other just as scrumptious grilled cheese sandwiches I found around the internet.

    I guess staring at cheese is almost the same thing as eating it. Love the bit of sweet in here from the pear!

    Oh man, you are a stronger woman than I am….cheese would be a tough one to give up! This sandwich looks amazing. If it helps, I’d be willing to eat one of these for you and tell you about it, so you don’t have to do it yourself… if you’d like. :)

    Sweet and savory grilled cheese sandwiches are the best grilled cheese sandwiches. I had to laugh about the loving-to-be miserable part… You are like the Morrissey of cheese!
