    Krsi Sue's Note:

    This matches the sharp tang of pumpernickel rye bread with the smooth flavor of pear. You can use other cheeses with this instead of the gouda. I've tried it with feta and blue cheese as well.

      This was a perfect solution to the problem of what to make for dinner tonight. We made a few changes due to allergies and availability, using whole-grain wheat bread, Bartlett pear, and good quality feta cheese. It was simply amazing!! My fiance, our roomie and I all loved this easy, quick light dinner. While we've always known how wonderfully feta and pear go together, we had never thought to use them in this type of way until I stumbled across this great recipe. *Thank you* for sharing! We will make this again often.
