Easy Frugal Recipe | Ham, Cheese & Pear Melt with Pepper Jelly!

 

Here is another Easy Frugal Recipe that I have recently made – using pears in a ham and cheese melt!  I have to give credit to my mom on this one – I feel like she’s always the brains behind good recipes I share!

INGREDIENTS:

Whole wheat bread

Thin Shaved Honey Smoked Ham

Muenster Cheese

Pear – sliced thin

Hunter & Hilsberg Hot Pepper Jelly (this is not super hot by the way – barely spicy at all actually.)  I found this kind at Wegmans or you can order one on Amazon.

hot pepper jelly

PREPARATION:

Spread the Hot Pepper Jelly on each slice of bread.  Even though the label says “hot” and you see large chunks of peppers, this is not really a spicy jelly.  It’s really sweet with a hint of pepper in the background – quite yummy if you ask me!

Top with ham, cheese, and thinly sliced pear.  You may want to put a slice of cheese on both pieces of bread to act as a “glue” when the sandwich is grilled.  Butter the outside of the bread and grill until golden brown!

The sweetness of the pear balances the saltiness of the ham & cheese for the perfect flavor!  The Hot Pepper Jelly is also sweet and not spicy, giving it the perfect extra flavor!  You can serve this sandwich with a potato, vegetable or rice of your choice.
