We had just a little time to eat, so sandwiches it was. Hot ham and cheese is kinda like a fancy grilled cheese sandwich.
Hot Ham and Cheese
2 slices deli ham
2 slices American cheese
2 slices bread
1 tbsp softened butter
Spread butter to edges on one side of each slice of bread. Place a slice of cheese on each slice. Add ham to center of sandwich. In a preheated frying pan, cook sandwich on medium for 30 seconds to a minute per side, until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted.
I used the Ol' Farmers Ham from the WalMart deli. It's the least processed ham in the deli and tastes the most like a real ham. I like to use American cheese slices because they melt the easiest. If you want to use a different cheese, be sure to cover the pan while cooking for better meltability. Swiss cheese would taste good with this sandwich too.
Flavor Rating: Great, I like this ham, it's the best I've tasted. I'm very picky about my ham.
Ease of Preparation: Easy, be sure to spread the butter to the edges for even browning.
