Grilled Brie and Pear Sandwiches
These Grilled Brie and Pear Sandwiches are a step up from your traditional grilled cheese and make a satisfying weekend lunch or a fast and easy weeknight dinner!
- 2 tablespoons light butter, I used Land O’ Lakes Light Butter Spread with Canola Oil
- 4 slices light wheat bread, I used Pepperidge Farm Light Style Wheat
- 2 oz Brie cheese, rind removed, sliced into thin strips (I used President brand)
- 1/2 oz arugula
- ½ large pear, sliced thin
- 1 teaspoon honey
Butter one side of each piece of bread with ½ tablespoon of butter each. Place two slices butter side down on a skillet. Spread the Brie pieces over the surface of the bread. Top with the arugula and then the pear slices. Drizzle ½ teaspoon of the honey over the pear slices on each sandwich. Place the reserved slices of bread, butter side up, on top of each sandwich.
Bring the skillet over medium heat and cook for about 3 minutes until golden on the bottom. Flip the sandwiches (carefully! I used a spatula on either side to hold them together) and cook for another 2-3 minutes until golden on both sides.
