Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwich

It was late, I was tired and I didn't feel like cooking.  There I said it, contrary to popular belief, it's not all about time spent in the kitchen, it's all about me.     Just kidding.   Truth is though, I spent the day at the beach, in the sun, and I was tired but I wanted to eat dinner too.   So, I made one of my husbands favorite sandwiches for dinner.    You can also make a salad to go with the sandwich for a more balanced meal if you like. 

And you can turn this into a Panini if you want to.   All I know is that it tastes good and is easy to make.   Let's face it, we all need meals like this. Quick to put on the table, almost effortlessly.  

Start by warming a loaf of your favorite french bread in the oven. 

Then place some thinly sliced ham or leftover ham from a ham roast if you have it, into a fry pan you've sprayed with some non stick spray.   You want the pan on low, all you're doing is heating up the ham a little, not frying it.  Add some sliced cheese on top, I like to use Cheddar,

Next take a pickle out of the fridge, slice it thinly.

Take the bread out of the oven, spread it with some mustard, make pretty designs if you like.   Then layer the warmed ham and cheese and the pickles onto the bread.

 Cut into quarters and serve.   As you can see from this picture, I got a little skimpy on the ham on my end of the sandwich.




And it was good and fast.  I've also put this sandwich on my George Forman Grill and make a Panini out of it at this point,  now that's good.
