A New Twist and a Timeless Classic RECIPE!!

Jul 30, 2012 by

I decided to mix things up a bit and give you all a recipe my grandmother always made for Sunday dinner when I was a little girl.  I saw this on another site and it took me back in time.  Today my daughter is blogging with me as a guest.  She is my super-duper photographer!  :)  I hope you enjoy this timeless classic.  There is a twist to this recipe.  If you don’t like mayonnaise, you can use cream cheese and crushed pineapple (drained) for the filling.  Here we go!

Step 1:  You can either use canned pears in heavy syrup or pear preserves.  I used a can of pears in the syrup.  Lift it out with a fork. Make sure the pear is drained well of the syrup.   You can place it on a lettuce leaf if you would like as decoration.

Step 2:  Stuff pear with Miracle Whip!  DO NOT use real mayonnaise!!  It just is not nearly as good!!


Step 3:  Add mild cheddar cheese (grated).

Voila!  You are done!  This is quick, easy, and sure to please on any dinner table or for a church supper.  Enjoy!!

    We used to fix that too! Thanks for reminding me though. I will do it again soon but I think I will try it with cream cheese. You can put cream cheese on a bumper and it would be good. Hahahahaha
