Adventure in the Kitchen: Grilled Cheese

I always think it is fun to put a new twist on a simple comfort food.  Today for lunch I put a twist on the traditional grilled cheese sandwich.

Pear and Gorgonzola Grilled Cheese on Whole Grain Bread

1 Pear cored and finely sliced
Gorgonzola Cheese sliced or crumbles
Whole Grain Bread sliced
Cooking Oil Spray

Spray with cooking oil one side of bread slices.  On non-oiled side of bread cover with cheese, then a single layer of pear slices, cheese then bread.  Place sandwich on a moderate hot griddle, oil side down.  On top of the sandwich use a heat safe saucer on sandwich (the weight of the saucer helps the cheese melt and heat the pear).  After a few minutes check the bottom of the sandwich, when golden remove saucer and flip sandwich, then replace saucer on the sandwich.  Done when the bottom of the sandwich is golden.
