This was a great twist on a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. I loved it, and it was so good for you.
Very quick and easy to do, with minimal clean up afterward ;-). My husband and I both loved them and definitely plan on having them again soon!
So easy! My kids and husband have already asked me to make it for them 3 times for lunch and dinner!
I had to cook the sandwiches longer than the reciepe called for and had to turn the oven broiler on to toast them. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but my sandwiches were mushy and I could not eat them.
Tasted great, but I had problems turning the sandwich over dispite putting it on a foil covered sheet and spraying cooking spray on it. Sandwich almost fell apart when I turned it. It tasted great, had to use a knife and fork though.
After making this the first time, I started putting dijon mustard on the bread before adding the meat and cheese. I also used Provolone Soy Cheese
This recipe didn't turn out well at all. I had to toast the sandwhiches more than double the time called for and ended up turning on the broiler to finish them up. Because of the extra toasting time the cheese turned into soupy mush not even recognizable as cheese. I think despite the fancy name these sandwhiches are nothing more than glorified toasted ham and cheese.
Very good useing the Sara Lee whole wheat (white) bread make sure you spray your baking sheet very well so they dont stick. The picky 6 yr old even ate these!
I have made it twice so far. Tasty is good, but I must be doing something wrong, can't get them golden brown. I baked them well over the times given in the artical and for a baby shower that I made them for finally had to turn the broiler on to brown them!
We really enjoyed these sandwiches! I made some with rye bread , which turned out perfect, and others with white, which didn't stand up as well and became mushy. I sprayed a non-stick baking sheet with canola cooking spray and I had no trouble with either bread sticking as others had reported. This was quick and easy with minimal mess and a welcome change of pace from the regular sandwich routine!
