Pear, Ham and Swiss Melts

  The Mr. and I like to buy locally raised meat.  We’ve been buying pork from a farm in town for a few years now, and usually get a ham in our order.  It’s always delicious, but the problem is, unless we throw a big party where we serve ham, it tends to be a lot more food than we can eat in one meal for our family.  So, in an attempt to clean out our freezer, we’ve been putting ham-based recipes on the menu left and right.  They’re coming…you’ve been warned.

corn tortillas
thinly sliced smoked ham
fresh pear, thinly sliced
Swiss cheese
Crumbled goat cheese
  Dip your tortillas in a bowl of water and place in a pan over medium high heat for a minute and a half to two minutes to steam them (until they begin to develop dark brown spots), flip them and allow to steam for another minute.  Place tortillas on a cookie sheet and top with layers of ham, sliced pears, and cheese. Broil for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  This was a great, quick and easy way to use up some ham.  G had some issues with his falling apart when he was trying to eat it, but generally enjoyed this, so it’s kid approved.  I always enjoy paring sweet and savory in a meal, so this was golden for me.  I expect this will be making its way onto our menu again!
