Cash Store's Grilled Ham, Brie & Pear Sandwich

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by DeeCooks

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.

Soooo good! I love treating myself at home, with a gourmet sandwich for lunch! I'd be proud to serve this to friends and family! I enjoyed the salty ham, tempered with the sweet, crispy pear and the oozing goodness of brie! I did use Hawaiian bread, as it is what I had on hand....WOW...10 stars in my book! Wish I'd thought of it, but so glad I found this...going in my Best of 2011! Thanks so much for sharing, DeeCooks!
