Cook onion, vinegar and brown sugar in a medium pot on medium-low heat for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat when jam consistency is reached and let cool.


Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Butter one side of a bread slice. On the other side, spread mustard and onion jam and layer with pear and cheese. Close the sandwich and butter the top slice.
