When I was a kid, my mom made these sandwiches for us at lunch (we came home from the neighborhood school for lunch) and they were always a hit. After I made them for Bev and me several years ago, she also became a fan.
Since we had some ham, bread, and tomatoes needing to be used, this was a good excuse to make another round. The ingredients for each of these sandwiches was:
One slice of sour dough bread from a round loaf
One 1/4” slice of Kentucky Legend Ham
Shredded cheese of your choice (or slices)
Sliced Roma tomatoes
Italian spices (mom used just oregano)
1. Nuke the ham slice to warm it a little then build the sandwich – bread, ham, cheese, tomato, onion, seasonings.
2. Bake in the toaster oven at 350 for about 10 minutes or until cheese begins to melt, then run it trough one toast cycle to finish cooking.
Note: The stacking order is important to ensure the onions and tomatoes cook some. If you want the cheese on top, just wait and add it after the toast cycle then broil it until melted.
The sandwiches were delicious and, of course, would be even better with tomatoes right off the vine. My next one will have a couple of ever easy eggs on top.
