( Gina HomolkaLunchAmerican )

Fruit and cheese is a classic combination, but most people limit themselves to apples and cheddar. Today, Gina Homolka introduces us to an adventurous combination from The Skinnytaste Cookbook: Light on Calories, Big on Flavor. She pairs succulent Royal Riviera@reg; Pears with creamy Brie cheese and then adds fig butter to create a superb grilled cheese recipe that will titillate your tastebuds. It's comfort food turned into a culinary delight for the health-conscious, courtesy of a Skinnytaste recipe.
