This Bacon, Pear and Fig Grilled Cheese combines sweet, savory and gooey. The ultimate grilled cheese!
Check out my newest creation (and obsession). I’ve literally had a Bacon, Pear and Fig Grilled Cheese three times this week. They are that good!
Every Christmas we receive proud towers of goodies from friends. Some contain cookies, others fruit, sometimes smoked fish and cheese. It all depends.
The only problem is that the towering displays of joy contain many perishable items and we typically travel. Or just can’t plain eat them all that fast. One week to consume 2 pounds of pear is just insane!
To prevent being wasteful, I challenge myself to use the surprises found in each festive box to create new and interesting culinary creations. Bacon, Pear and Fig Grilled Cheese is one of these made for lunch that took both my husband and I by surprise due to how delectable it was!
While I make this grilled cheese on a panini press, you can also use a griddle or plain old frying pan. No matter how you get the bread crusty and cheese gooey, it will all taste fabulous.

Assemble your sandwiches by evenly distributing bacon, pears, white cheddar cheese and figs onto one slice of sourdough bread. Top with a corresponding piece of sourdough bread.
Heat your panini press or frying pan. Coat with cooking spray or butter.
Mash grilled cheese until light brown. Cut and serve!
