Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich with Fresh Pears

1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
½ teaspoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon brown sugar
½ tsp honey
pinch cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1 fresh pear, cored, skinned, and thinly sliced
4 ounces thinly shaved Cure 81 Ham or equivalent product, sliced
4 thin slices of baby Swiss cheese
4 pieces of rye or whole grain wheat bread
1 tablespoon soft butter

Combine the first six ingredients and spread onto one side of each of the four slices of bread.

To assemble the two sandwiches: On top of 2 slices of bread, with the mustard-mayo combination side up, layer the ingredients as follows: cheese, ham, pear, cheese – and then top with the remaining slices of bread, with the mustard-mayonnaise side down.

Next, thinly butter the outsides of both sandwiches.

Grill for 2-3 minutes over medium heat, cooking until golden brown. Turn and cook on the other side for another 2-3 minutes.
