Oven-Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches, and salad

Pin It
A while back, we were watching Jacques Pepin's Fast Food My Way on PBS. And we saw him make these fancy grilled cheese sandwiches but in the oven. He then cut the crust off, cut them into bite-size pieces, stuck a toothpick in each one and served them at a dinner party. I was impressed. I filed that recipe away in my memory, and pulled it out for last night's dinner. Although I love the crust, so that stayed, and there were no toothpicks involved.

On the side we had a healthy salad of butter lettuce, clover sprouts, watercress from our garden, tomatoes and bell peppers.

Oven Baked Sandwiches
serves 1
2 slices of rye bread or any other bread you like
1 slice or more of a nice ham
2 slices of provolone cheese
butter to taste

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toast bread in a toaster just a bit, so it's easier to spread butter on it.
2) Butter 1 side of each slice, these will be your outter sides.
3) Layer bread with cheese, ham, and cheese.
4) Bake for about 7-10 minutes. Flip half-way through.
