Friday Recipe: Blue Cheese, Bacon and Pear Brunch Sandwiches

Bacon. Need I say more? Yes? I know there's a bacon craze these days, but I can only eat a very small amount before...well, anyway. Small amounts of bacon. But oh, this bacon and pear on bread recipe is too delicious not to share!

Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Ready In: 25 Minutes
Servings: 4
1 Bosc pear, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups apple juice
6 slices bacon
2 rosemary focaccia bread, or other
square rolls, split
6 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
1. Place the pear slices in a skillet, and pour in the apple juice. Cook over medium heat until the pears are soft, about 5 minutes. Drain pears and reserve; discard juice.
2. Meanwhile, place the bacon in a skillet and cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain on paper towels. Crumble and set aside.
3. Preheat the oven broiler.
4. Place the focaccia bread slices on a baking sheet. Divide the pear slices evenly among the bread, and top evenly with the bacon, and then with the blue cheese.
5. Broil the sandwiches in the preheated broiler until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes.
