honey ham & grilled cheese sammy

In breakfast, brekkie, brunch, dinner, easy weeknight meals, leftovers, lunch on 01.17.12 at 6:48 pm

sandwiches don’t have to be boring. this honey ham & grilled cheese sammy just oozes with flavour and personality. the perfect (non-boring) companion for a tall glass of milk. yummers.

and what’s even better is that it’s a simple recipe for leftover redux. still not sure what to do that leftover ham from the holidays that’s still sitting in your freezer? check this out…

prep the ingredients:
– defrost slices of leftover honey ham
– cut a few slices of appenzeller cheese (gouda or gruyere would melt well, too.)
– cut thick slices of wholewheat sourdough bread

i love the locally-made, artisan sourdough from sidewalk citizen bakery. there’s something really comforting about aviv’s artisan bread — perfect for grilled cheese sammies!

grillin’ the sammy:
– melt 1.5 tbsp unsalted butter in pan on medium heat
– on the inside of the sourdough slices, spread horseradish dijon mustard on each slice
– place slices of appenzeller cheese on inside of each slice

– pile on the sliced honey ham on one of the sourdough slices
– lightly drizzle honey on the ham
– sandwich together the slices of sourdough
– press sandwiches firmly w/ kitchen spatula
– grill in pan on medium heat for 2-3min (flip sides) until toasted brown & cheese is melted
– remove from heat & set aside to cool slightly

food styling:
– cut sandwiches in 1/2 on the diagonal
– serve warm w/ tall glass of skim milk on the side. yummers. :)
