Step 1

Separate the ham slices and smoosh them together in as fluffy a mound as possible. Melt a tablespoon of butter on a griddle or cast iron skillet over medium heat and slide the heap of ham onto the butter. Fluff it up occasionally so it warms through-and-through but doesn't turn crusty.

Step 2

Butter one side of each piece of bread or the exterior of the sliced hard roll. Place the bread, butter side down, on the same griddle or in a separate skillet. Lay a slice of cheese atop each slice of bread and cook until the bread is lightly toasted and the cheese has begun to melt.

Step 3

Pile the hot ham onto one of the slices of bread and top it with the other slice. Cover the sandwich with a pot lid or aluminum foil and let it steam under the lid for a minute. Flip it and let it steam another minute. The exterior should be a golden brown and crisp.

Step 4

Remove from skillet and slice in half to serve. Add condiments to taste.

Made for the FF&F Best of 2015 Tag Game as a fave of ImPat - I used thinly-sliced Bayonne ham, rye bread & Gouda cheese w/sliced tomato only as an opt extra. Great comfort food sammie that I devoured for brunch w/fruit & coffee. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
