Recipe: Grilled Smoked Ham and Cheddar Cheese Sandwich

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are getting something of a revival… suddenly people are loving them again. I plan out my blog posts at least a month in advance… sometimes longer… and I had to chuckle to myself when I saw MSN recently tout Grilled Cheese Sandwiches… guess great minds think alike.

I, honestly, never stopped loving Grilled Cheese… in fact... Warren and I have them and Tomato Soup periodically for supper. My Mother has been a devoted fan of them for as long as I can remember… she would insist on ordering one if we went to a new place for a quick sandwich… because she knew it would be good.

This recipe for Grilled Smoked Ham and Cheddar Cheese Sandwich takes a little different spin on the ordinary Grilled Cheese… it wasn’t rocket science.. and certainly I don’t claim to have invented it… but I thought I would share a really terrific idea for lunch or a quick supper.


I used thick slices of Sourdough bread… we happen to have had a Sourdough Boule… I definitely recommend it… makes for a more interesting and substantial sandwich than ordinary sandwich bread.

I love Sargento cheese…they have sliced Sharp Cheddar cheese… makes making the sandwich not only a snap but delicious too!

I use soft spread margarine… you can use butter if you prefer.

There are no quantities listed… it really is personal preference… I say.. pile it on!

I hope you try it!

Recipe: Grilled Smoked Ham and Cheddar Cheese Sandwich

All you need:

Thick sliced sourdough bread
Smoked deli ham, sliced thin
Sargento Sharp Cheddar Cheese slices
Margarine or butter

All you need to do:

Spread margarine on 1 side of each slice of bread.

Place 1 of the slices, margarine side down, layer the ham and cheese on the dry side.

Place 1 of the slices, margarine side up, on top of the ham and cheese.

Place on a hot griddle.

When the bottom is golden in color, carefully flip it over and press it gently with a spatula.

Cook until the bottom is golden and cheese has melted… remove it from the griddle and allow it to set for 1-2 minutes. Cut it in half and serve.
