Fall Grilled Cheese with Pear, Brie and Caramelized Onions


What do you get when you layer ripe juicy pear slices with Brie and caramelized onions between 2 slices of bread?  One of the best grilled cheeses you’ll ever sink your teeth into!  This is an adult grilled cheese.  You know how to make it…. Just take 2 slices of your favorite grilled-cheese bread.  On the first slice, layer the brie slices first,  top with the pear slices and a few turns of the pepper mill.  Crown with a heap of caramelized onions (how to make them: here) and your second slice of bread.  Spread either butter, oilive oil or mayo on the outside of your bread and toast like you do a regular grilled cheese until golden and the cheese is oozing out.  Cut in half on the diagonal.  What you notice on the first bite is the creaminess of the luscious and decadent melted Brie.  Then the sweetness of the pear and the zestyness of the onions, perfectly encased in buttery toasty bread.  Serve with a side of sweet potato fries for more seasonal appeal.
