Sourdough Bread – The foundation of this sandwich, sourdough adds a tangy, chewy texture that complements the other ingredients. You can use any bread you like for this sandwich, but I highly recommend white bread or a crusty baguette for the best results.

Brie Cheese – Creamy, mild, and slightly nutty, brie cheese is the star of this sandwich. Its mild and buttery flavor pairs perfectly with the other ingredients, adding a luxurious touch to the sandwich.

Prosciutto – Thinly sliced prosciutto contributes a salty, savory depth of flavor and a delicate texture.

Pear – Sliced pear adds a juicy, sweet, and slightly tart element that brightens up the sandwich.

Honey – A drizzle of honey enhances the sweetness of the pear and adds a hint of floral flavor to the sandwich. It brings all the flavors together and adds a touch of decadence.

Walnuts – Optional, but highly recommended! Chopped walnuts add a delightful crunch and nutty undertone, taking this sandwich to the next level.

Tips for recipe success

  • Choose the freshest and highest-quality ingredients you can find. Good bread, ripe pears, premium brie cheese, and quality prosciutto will elevate the sandwich to gourmet levels. 
  • Use pears that are ripe but still firm. They should yield slightly when gently pressed near the stem. Overly ripe pears may become mushy in the sandwich.
  • Don’t add too much honey, as it can overwhelm the other flavors. About one teaspoon per sandwich should be enough for a perfect subtle sweetness!
