  • 2 slices bread
  • 2 to 3 pieces bacon
  • 2 tablespoons honey (more or less to taste)
  • 3 to 4 slices of brie
  • 1/2 pear (sliced thinly)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (more or less to taste)

Steps to Make It

  1. Bake or fry your bacon to the doneness you prefer.

  2. In a nonstick skillet, warm the pear slices over low heat for 3-4 minutes. Set aside.

  3. Generously butter one side of each piece of toast. The buttered side is the outside.

  4. Take one slice, on the side without butter, build your sandwich: generously slather with honey, then add the warmed pears, top with cheese and the bacon. Close the sandwich over, again butter side out.

  5. Place a pat of butter in a skillet and heat over medium high heat. Grill both sides until golden brown and cheese is melty.
