I tried this the other day and it was very good. The kids really loved it. I will definitely get my friends to try this. I want to thank you for the excellent idea for this dish. It was very simple to make.

I never thought of this combination, but it was delicious! My 22 month old love it too!

A great option for a tasty meal in a hurry! This is a very cool change to an ordinary grilled cheese sandwich. The pear's juiciness is a perfect contrast with the sharpness of the cheddar very well together. Only four ingredients beginning to end, I like that you will most likely have all of them in your kitchen already and with no shopping necessary, this recipe is that much easier to make. Aside from its easiness, I think its best feature is the fruit so cleverly hidden behind the cheese. This sandwich is a great meal for kids because they're getting a small serving of fruit and nutrition without even knowing it! It's delicious for both kids and adults. I will definitely make this again when I'm craving a grilled cheese sandwich!
