Pear, Prosciutto + Brie Grilled Cheese
With all the beautiful bounty of fall’s fruits, I couldn’t resist creating this bougie grilled cheese! 💁🧀 She’s not only a stunner, but she’s absolutely scrumptious!
We love a good sweet-salty flavor combo in this house. Give us salted caramel, apple cider pork, maple veggies, and ALL the kettle corn. I cannot resist pairing those punchy flavors together to make recipe magic.
In this case, fresh fall pears were calling out to me. Begging to be sandwiched in buttery bread with sliced prosciutto, tangy mustard, and peppery fresh arugula. Of course, I had to answer! And boy, am I glad I did.
You don’t need any fancy equipment for this easy skillet sandwich – just five ingredients (plus bread and butter) and a hearty appetite for cheese. Oh baby, this delicious sandwich is full of it! Melty, gooey brie paired with sweet pears and proscuitto is just about as close to heaven as you can get.
Never used brie? You can find it in most grocery’s deli or specialty cheese sections. Just slice the white rind off the sides, and you’re good to go! The skillet will do all the work melting it into creamy, gooey bliss for you.
Okay, enough talk and more action, right? Let’s get to the easy steps and let’s make you a grown-up grilled cheese!
