- Slices of artesian sourdough bread with jalapeño*
- Slices of English Coastal Cheddar Cheese or sharp Cheddar Cheese
- Aleppo pepper flakes**
- Red pears (such as Anjou or Bartlett), sliced
Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Place the bread slices on the hot pot or griddle and toast lightly on just one side.
Flip the bread over, place the cheese slices on top of the toasted side and sprinkle with Aleppo red pepper flakes. Place the lid on the pan, and let cook until the cheese is just barely melted.
Meanwhile, slice the red pears. Place all on a plate and enjoy.
** Aleppo Pepper - A Turkish crushed chili has an ancho-like flavor with a little more heat and tartness (medium level of heat, sweet, fruity, complex with hints of Cumin). Also Known as Halaby Pepper. If you cannot find this pepper, replace with the regular crushed red peppers.
