Ultimate Ham Panini
IMG_0769IMG_0771

If you use pintrest and typed in sandwich in the search engine you likely have seen those baked Hawaiian roll ham sandwiches / sliders with that sweet mustard poppy glaze. They take those sweet King Hawaiian Rolls, cut them in half, pile on ham and swiss cheese, add the tops and then slather the top with a mixture of butter, brown sugar and mustard, onion powder and poppy seeds then bake until the cheese melts.

Those sandwiches or sliders look really good and would be great for a casual party or as some people state “funeral sandwiches”. You get the idea, small hand food that should satisfy most palates.

Given that it’s just the two of us and I actually wanted a more “toothy” bread, I decided to switch up a bit. I did this by creating a similar “sauce” and then added my ham into it until fully coated. Also I wanted to add some tomatoes and avocado. I used swiss and cheddar and added a little crisp bacon for texture.

Ingredients
Sliced Sourdough Bread
Deli ham
Swiss cheese
Cheddar cheese
Dukes Mayo
Sliced and dried tomatoes
Sliced avocado
Crispy Bacon
Butter

Sauce
2 tbs of butter
1 tbs of brown sugar
1 tbs of dijon mustard
2 tsp of grainy mustard
splash of Worcestershire
2 tsp of onion powder

Directions

1. Prep.. microwave your bacon until crispy, slice your tomato, avocado, cheese and bread.

2. In a saucepan on medium low heat add your sauce ingredients and let it melt and meld. Then add the ham to that pot and move the ham around until it become fully coated and hot. IMG_0766

3. I assembled my sandwich by putting a little Dukes May on both sides. Then add swiss to one side and cheddar to the other. Add your ham, tomato, avocado and bacon and then heat them up. Don’t forget to lightly butter both sides of the outside of the bread to get a nice brown crunchy exterior. I have a panini maker if you don’t you can use a cast iron skillet and brown on both sides.
