Foodie Friday! Grilled Ham & Cheese with Pear

Grilled Ham & Cheese with Pear

This Foodie Friday we’re putting a spin on an old favourite – Grilled Ham & Cheese! Adding fruit makes it healthy right? So we’re proposing the grilled ham & cheese sandwich with pear! It may seem like a strange combination at first, but trust us – the salty taste of the cheese and ham combined with the sweet taste of the pear is a match made in heaven!


Total Time: Less than 30 minsGrilled Ham & Cheese with Pears

Serves: 2 (2 Sandwiches)



  • 4 slices sandwich bread

  • 1 pear, thinly sliced
  • 250 grams deli ham, thinly sliced
  • Butter



  1. Layer 4 slices of sandwich bread with about 250 grams of melting cheese, 1 thinly sliced pear, and 250 grams of thinly sliced deli ham; top each with bread.

  3. Spread the outside of both bread slices with butter.
  4. Cook sandwiches in batches (if necessary) until golden and cheese is melted, flipping once, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
