    This was really easy to make and I liked it but my boys did not eat it. So I only rated it 3 stars. I'd make it again for myself but will have to skip this one for the kids next time. :o(

    I loved the combination of salty, sweet, creamy, and crunchy all in one bite. The grocer did not have gruyere so I substituted a good quality 4 yr aged cheddar, and a nice quality asiago bread from the baker. Will be interested to try again with the gruyere. When I make several grilled cheese like this, I use the oven...heat to broil, the key is heating the baking sheet before you put the sandwiches on, grill, flip, grill. The cheese that oozes out make s a crispy crust and less butter needed :)

    I love rye bread or pumpernickle, also use mayonnaise instead of butter ,sounds silly but lends a nice golden color to the bread.

    This was so easy to make and absolutely the best grilled ham and cheese with the pear on it. Only thing is I had to wait for the pear to ripen. I didn't cook the pear and it turned out even better.

    I made these as a lazy dinner for my family, they went over a treat. I cooked the pear in melted butter as Martha did on the show. YUMMY
