This is pretty simple fare, but tasty, especially now that the weather is turning a little chillier and it’s nice to have a hot lunch, rather than cold sandwiches.
- 2 slices bread
- Sliced Ham (3 thick slices or 6 thin slices)
- 1 slice American cheese
- Start heating a frying pan on a low to medium-low flame. Hit it with some oil or non-stick spray.
- Toss the ham into the frying pan. You want to warm it up a little, but you don’t need to blacken it or anything. If you put it in the cold pan, when it starts to sizzle, it’ll be warm enough (as will the pan).
- Butter one side of each slice of bread while the ham warms.
- Put the cheese on the bread, and then plop the ham onto it, and assemble the sandwich.
- Butter the outside of the slice of bread closer to the ham.
- Flip the sandwich into the pan, buttered side down.
- Butter the top slice of bread while the bottom cooks.
- Once the bottom slice of bread is toasted enough, flip the sandwich over. If your flame’s right, it’s about three minutes per side.
- When it’s done, pop it out onto a plate, cut in halves or quarters, and serve.
