Recipe by

I sliced, vacuum sealed, and stored about 70 pounds of ham the other day, but I left a bit out for an experimental sandwich. It is a combination of good ham, cheeses, and spices, served on a freshly baked ciabatta roll. So Scrummy. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How To Make easy/peasy essentials: cheesy, spicy ham sammie

  • 1
  • 2
    You will need a medium size skillet to make this recipe.

    The Bread I like the texture toasted ciabatta bread gives to this sandwich; however, use whatever bread you have on hand, toasted or not… up to you. The Cheese As with the bread, come up with your own combination of cheeses, but about an ounce is all you need. Much more and it becomes a cheese, not a ham, sandwich.
  • 4
    Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  • 5
    Chop up the ham. Chop, Chop, Chop.
  • 6
    Add the butter to a skillet over medium-low heat, and when it melts stir in the hot sauce. Then add the chopped ham.
  • 7
    Stir until it is warmed through and begins to crisp a bit, about 5 – 7 minutes. Add the cheese, remove from the heat, and let the cheese melt into the hot ham, about 1 – 2 minutes.
  • 8
    I usually toast the bread, then add some brown mustard to one side, and some yellow to the other.
  • 9
    They are optional but some nice tart dill slices go really good on this bad boy. Even some thinly sliced garden tomatoes.

  • So yummy
    Serve while nice and warm with some chips, fries, or maybe just a nice side salad. Enjoy.
