Recipe: Grilled Gouda Smoked Ham and Pear Sandwich

I love pairing fruit and cheese.. so why not in a sandwich?… In this Grilled Gouda Smoked Ham and Pear Sandwich…. the pear complements the gouda and the smoked ham so perfectly… a dab of Dijon mustard and … viola!.. you have one terrific sandwich!


Sargento makes a sliced Gouda that is both delicious and convenient… it works perfectly with this.

I used a whole wheat bread.. you can use any bread you prefer.

Use the Dijon mustard sparingly.. you just need a little.

Don’t pile on the smoked ham otherwise the flavor will overpower the rest.

I hope you try this!

Recipe: Grilled Gouda Smoked Ham and Pear Sandwich

All you need:

2 Slices of bread
Sliced Gouda cheese
Thinly sliced smoked deli ham
Pear slices
Dijon mustard
Butter or margarine softened

All you have to do:

Generously spread the softened butter or margarine on 1 side of each slice of bread.

Sparingly spread some Dijon mustard on the other side of the bread slices.

Place 1 of the slices, margarine side down, layer the Gouda, then ham, then pear slices and more Gouda.

Place 1 of the slices, margarine side up, on top of the cheese.

Place on a hot griddle.

When the bottom is golden in color, carefully flip it over and press it gently with a spatula.

Cook until the bottom is golden and cheese has melted… remove it from the griddle and allow it to set for 1-2 minutes. Cut it in half and serve.

I'm a big fan of cheese and fruit and especially when there's a pear involved. This looks like a great sandwich and I'll most certainly be making this soon. Thanks for the Sargento tip.
