A couple weeks ago, I was watching one of my favorite shows, Modern Family, and was struck with inspiration. In this particular episode, flamboyantly gay Cam is hijacking a middle school musical and his boyfriend, Mitchell, brings him a pb&j in an attempt to be supportive. Of course, a crazy gay man won’t eat peanut butter and jelly, and we soon learn the sandwich is actually pear, brie, and jambon.
I thought the sandwich sounded so delicious, so when I was at the Union Square Green Market yesterday, I picked up some fresh sourdough and the other ingredients to re-create the sandwich. So simple and yet such a perfect meal. Sweet, juicy, salty, creamy – all rolled into one.
It was so good, I made it again today. Get on this one – you’ll love it.
