Cash Store's Grilled Ham, Brie & Pear Sandwich

I had this at The Davenport Cash store, which is north of Santa Cruz, CA. While everyone's dish was good, they all wanted bites of mine! Luckily it was easy to duplicate at home. I've used other breads, but I think a quality white sandwich bread best lets the flavor shine through. I've also baked several (at about 400 degrees, til golden browned) and then cut into quarters for appetizers at a brunch.
