Instructions

  1. Spread 1/2 tablespoon of Country Crock on each slice of bread. Assemble the sandwiches by placing 3 slices of turkey on each of 4 buttered bread slices, followed by fanned-out slices of pear and 2 or 3 slices of gouda. Scatter arugula on top. Season generously with black pepper, and top each with a bread slice.
  2. Cook on medium heat in a nonstick pan, turning every few minutes to keep each side evenly toasting. Remove from heat when the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown.
Tia’s Tip: Generously spreading the bread with Country Crock imparts a wonderfully buttery, toasty flavor.
