i had some ham in the refrigerator and thought..."if a ham & cheese sandwich is good a grilled ham and cheese is even better, right?"
grilled cheese sandwiches are more of a technique than a recipe. you should customize them to your liking. use as much or as little cheese as you like. whatever bread you want. ham, bacon, heirloom tomatoes in season, greens, grilled onions, marinated eggplant? grilled or panini style? i am sharing the way i make mine....share your favorites on facebook or in the comments section of this post.
grilled ham & cheese sandwiches
for each sandwich:
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp dijon mustard
2 slices sourdough bread
1/2 cup coarsely grated cheddar cheese
1-2 ham slices, thinly sliced
heat skillet or grill pan(my preference) over medium high heat. in a small bowl, combine mayo and mustard. set aside. spread 1 side of both slices of bread with butter. spread the mayo mixture on the other side of each slice. place 1 slice of bread ,butter side down, in the skillet. mound the cheese on top of the mayo side. top the cheese with the ham slices. top with the second slice mayo side down. grill for 3- 4 minutes, or until bread is nicely toasted with deep grill marks (if using grill pan) and cheese is melted. flip sandwich and grill second side until golden brown. remove from heat, slice and serve immediately.
for a different twist, try my recipe for apple, fennel & cheddar cheese panini. pure yum!
