Dinner Tonight: Bacon, Pear, and Cheese Sandwich

Bacon, Pear, and Cheese Sandwich: You know, because sometimes a grilled cheese is just not enough. You deem that what that classic could really use is a bunch of bacon. I mean, when has that ever failed a sandwich before? So how about a few slices of pear to balance it all out, and make you feel a little better about yourself? But only a few.

Instead of feeling like an overstuffed grilled cheese, the sandwich comes out unique and perfectly proportioned. It's like a brand new creation. I have Simply Recipes to thank for this. It may read like a train-wreck, but the result is slightly crunchy and gooey, with a nice bright shot of acidity from the pear to balance it all out. It's perfect as a nice light dinner, or paired with some soup.
