Simple Chokes and Simpler Sandwiches

Pin It
I love artichokes. Prepared in any way. But I really haven't spent too much time at home cleaning and sauteeing or baking fresh ones. It always looks so time consuming and tedious. So instead, we usually steam them, and then dip the ends in mustard, until we get to the heart, which we smother with mustard and devour in a few bites. It's a fun process.

Last night, to accompany my left over soup, I decided to steam some jumbo artichokes, and make grilled ham and cheese sandwiches on rye marble bread. My favortie bread of all. It's not only pretty, but it's delicious and good for you. I discovered that the new Henry's Market in Monrovia has it in stock almost all the time. For a deal too.

I used black forrest ham and Kraft Singles Select, since they melts really nice. Now, I'd normally use a better cheese, but let me tell you, I have fooled some friends with the Singles Select, so, it's really pretty good for grilled cheese. And unlike the deli cheese I buy, it keeps well for a long time.
