To poach the pears:


  1. Firstly you will need to peel & core 2 pears. Once done, slice the pears, you will get around 10-12 slices per pear, ensure they are about 1/2 an inch thick.
  2. Next, add the pears to a pan, with the water, butter & caster sugar.
  3. Poach the pears for around 10-15 minutes, ensuring you keep an eye on them so they do not over cook


To assemble the sandwich:

  1. With 2 slices of bread, add the whole grain mustard & mayonnaise mix to both sides of the bread 
  2. Next add the bacon, greens & cheddar cheese
  3. Finally, add about 5 slices of the poached pears to the sandwich.
