Grilled Cheese, Black Ham & Tomato Sandwich

Friday I needed something quick and easy for lunch. Since I was home, I decided to do something a bit more special than a simple sandwich. Grilled cheese is good, but grilled cheese with Black ham and a few slices of tomatoes is even better!


Grilled Cheese, Black Ham & Tomato SandwichIngredients
2 slices wholegrain bread
2 slices Swiss cheese
2 slices Black Ham
4 thin slices of tomatoes
sunflower oil
Grilled Cheese, Black Ham & Tomato Sandwich
Directions
1. Heat a bit of sunflower oil in a non-stick pan.
2. Assemble your sandwich: bread/cheese/tomatoes/ham/cheese/bread.
3. Cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes. Make sure to add a bit more oil to the pan right before flipping the sandwich.
4. Serve immediately with spinach/olive oil/sherry vinegar/red pepper flakes salad.

What's your favorite grilled cheese sandwich?

PS. I am feeling better and am back at work today (Monday). Thank you so much everyone for asking!!!!

This is like a croque Monsieur but with tomatoes added! I like to eat these with a Tomato ketchup!

Ah I could so go for a grilled cheese. Its such comfort food for me, reminds me of my childhood :D. I tend to make mine with really thin slices of tomato and basil, the basil makes all the difference.

My favorite is actually plain old white bread and American cheese with lots of butter. Sometimes I also like rye bread.

If I'm going for fancy, I'll do gruyere and slices of pear!

I've also done ham and tomato and love it! Great pictures!

oh, I LOVE grilled cheese! It's such a common comfort food, but you made it look quite artistic, and now I really crave one!
I love one with dried figs, goat cheese, prosciutto, and tomato, pressed in a ciabatta!

This is actually a very popular sandwich in Brazil. we call it Misto Quente. Maybe you're a Brazilian at heart :)

That looks delicious Olga. Feeling better or still a bit sick? I wanted to try some grilled panini but my stomach is a little upset this morning (possibly from overdosing on red wine last night..:)) so maybe tomorrow... This does look really good and easy though!

Agreed! I love grill my sandwiches. It's so much tastier when it's grilled. And most important, it's not soggy.
