I know these are quick to make fresh, but can you really beat simply unwrapping something and throwing it on the frying pan? It is so easy to put together a half dozen sandwiches and clean up only once. Sold!
Recipe type: Freezer
Serves: 6 sandwiches
  • 12 slices whole grain bread (or your favorite sandwich bread).
  • one stick room temperature butter. (real butter is best).
  • 12 slices of your favorite cheese or about 8 oz.
  • 6 slices of deli ham. (We use all natural, nitrate free. Applegate is a common brand found in most grocery stores.)
  1. Make your sandwich like you would any grilled cheese.
  2. Butter one side of each slice of bread.
  3. Layer one slice of cheese, one slice of ham, plus a second slice of cheese on a piece of bread butter side down. Top with second slice of bread, butter side up.
  4. Wrap sandwich in tin foil. Double wrap if you wish.
  5. Label foil with heating instructions.
  6. TO RE-HEAT:
  7. You can grill these from frozen, or you can thaw first, either will work!
  8. If frozen place sandwich on a medium size frying pan or griddle that is warmed to medium-low heat. You will want a lower heat that when grilling them from frozen so the cheese has more time to melt. Grill each side until outside is golden brown and cheese is melted.
  9. From thawed, grill each side over medium heat until golden brown and the cheese is melted.
