Cauliflower and Pear Melt

For the Cauliflower
1 head cauliflower
1/4 extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp mustard powder
2 tsp smoked paprika
sea salt & ground pepper

3 tbsp of Asian pear & clove jelly or hot pepper jelly, or honey mustard dressing. Basically a dressing or jelly of your choice. I like the Asian pear the best, but it is homemade from our farmers market here in Blairsville, GA.

For the Sandwich Build
4 tbsp salted butter
8 slices of sourdough bread
8 ounces Garlic bread cheese, Aged white cheddar or Gruyere shredded
3 pears thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place cauliflower stem side down on counter and slice into one half inch thick steaks. In a bowl wisk together the olive oil, mustard powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Brush the cauliflower steaks with the spiced oil. Place them flat on a baking sheet and roast for 10 min. Carefully flip the cauliflower, return to oven and roast until golden, another 10 min.

Melt 2 tblsp butter on a griddle over med-low heat. Spread some of the jelly/mustard on 4 slices, top each with some cheese, roasted cauliflower, sliced pear, more cheese and another piece of bread. Grill until crispy on outside and gooey in the middle about 3 to 5 min.
