I perused the interwebs for ideas of what to do with all the pears I bought from the market. I saw mention of a grilled cheese sandwich with pear and bacon somewhere. It sounded so deep, dark, sweet, and rich but I don’t eat meat… My solution: replace the bacon with marmite. It’s really good stuff. More Americans should give it a chance, especially vegetarians and vegans. It provided the complex, umami flavor I was looking for in this sandwich. Yum!
