If you didn’t pick up some of our Asian Pears last weekend, you definitely need to on Saturday before they are all gone.  We have been enjoying several different recipes with them the last couple of weeks and thought I would share a few with all of you.

Never thought to pair Asian pear with the sharp, nutty Gouda, but it was a perfect marriage. Sweet, juicy, nutty, gooey. YUMmm…


1 tbsp butter (softened)

2 slices rye bread or your favorite type

2 ozs cheese (thinly sliced Gouda)

5 slices Asian pears (1/8 inch thick slices)


Heat a large frying pan over medium-low heat. Meanwhile, spread half of the butter on one side of each slice of bread.

Once the pan is warm, add 1 slice of bread, buttered side down, then top with half of the cheese, all of the pear slices, and finally the remaining cheese. Close with the second slice of bread, buttered side up.

Cook until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted, about 6 minutes per side. Serve with some fresh fruit or a green salad.
