  • 2 medium pear
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 8 slice bread, whole wheat
  • 2 teaspoon mustard
  • 8 slice turkey breast, deli style
  • 4 slice Muenster cheese
  • 2 cup spinach

Serve With

  • 2 cup shredded lettuce, green leaf
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 cup, chopped walnuts
  • 4 tablespoon feta cheese crumbles


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Cut pears in half lengthwise, then scoop out the core and seeds. Place cut side down on a work surface.
  • Starting ½ inch from the stem (leaving the pear intact at the stem end), cut lengthwise into thin slices; press the pear gently so slices spread out like a fan.
  • Mix the honey and cinnamon in a small mixing bowl.
  • Drizzle pears with the honey mixture, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake 15 minutes or until tender.
  • Remove stems from the pears and separate into slices.
  • Preheat panini press or heat a skillet over medium.
  • Spread one side of each slice of bread with mustard; layer with turkey, cheese, pears, and spinach; and add remaining slices of bread.
  • Place the sandwiches in a panini press or skillet (place a heavy pan on top if using a skillet) until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted.
  • Make salad by adding lettuce, blackberries, walnuts, and feta cheese to a large bowl. Add your favorite dressing and toss together.
  • Serve paninis with salad on the side.
