Ingredients

  • 3  Tablespoons  unsalted butter
  • large ripe pear, skin removed, cored, and cut into 16 equal slices
  • 1  Tablespoon  pickled ginger, drained and finely chopped
  • 2  Teaspoons  honey
  • 6  Ounces  fresh goat's milk chevre
  • slices of sourdough bread 1/4 inch thick
  • Sprig of fresh rosemary

Directions

In a small sauté pan, add 1 tablespoon of the butter; save the remaining 2 tablespoons for later.

Heat the butter over medium heat until it starts to foam, then add the pear slices, the pickled ginger, and the honey. Allow to cook for about 5-7 minutes until the pear begins to color lightly and soften.

Remove pears and any liquids into a bowl and let sit.

Equally spread the chevre onto one side of each slice of bread.

Assemble the sandwiches by adding 4-6 slices of the cooked pears to the goat’s milk chevre side of the bread then topping with another slice of bread, cheese side down. Reserve the liquids and extra pear slices for garnish.

Using the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, equally spread onto the outsides of each sandwich.

In a large sauté pan over a medium flame, toast the sandwiches to a deep golden brown on each side.

Allow sandwiches to rest for 3 minutes before cutting or eating.

Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary and any remaining honey and pickled ginger left over.

Caramel Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Caramel Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
