If you start with a ripe, tender pear, the fruit will melt right along with the cheese for a soft and luscious, salty-sweet, flavor-packed filling between two slices of golden, bitter beer bread.

    Nummy num num! That looks divine! My daughter has some pears she bought to make a recipe using marscapone (sp?) cheese. HOWEVER, I may us that to make a samwhich tomorrow for lunch. Do you think she would kill me? She is 16, so technically everything in the fridge is mine. I bought it and all. Yes, she is over-ruled. Pear and Marscapone Grilled Cheese…can’t wait for lunch!!
