I used a 12 grain bread, which is what I keep on hand. I used smooth peanut butter just due to personal preference. I was on the fence about the cheese, but I really enjoyed it. Instead of using the microwave, I popped it under the broiler. Just watch the edges of your toast doing it that way! This would definitely be awesome with apples too.

I didn’t substitute anything. I used 5 grain Italian bread from Publix Bakery. I wasn’t really expecting much. Boy, was I surprised! The slice of pear was like a flavor bomb. The drizzle of honey was delicious. It took peanut butter to a whole new level. Between a lap band and no bottom dentures, eating can sometimes be a challenge for me. I found that I could grill this in butter like a grilled cheese and the slice mouthful bites that I was able to chew somewhat and swallow. I loved it. I haven’t had pears in years. It was a joyful experience.

I substituted almond/cashew butter for the peanut butter; and substituted an apple for the pear. I served it as an afternoon snack. Thank you, L.J. for sharing this recipe.
