We’re sure you’re familiar with “Are we there yet?” “I’m hungry!” and countless other rants you may hear on your road trip, but we have a recipe that will keep them quiet and fill ‘em up. It’s grilled ham and cheese, but it’s not just any grilled ham and cheese. This, my friends, is going to be prepared in a loaf of bread and wrapped in foil and when it’s ready you’re going to have a mouth watering ooey, gooey, hot grilled ham and cheese sandwich that will become a family favorite. We found this tasty recipe at tablespoon.com They have loads of great recipes, so be sure to check them out!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 loaf Italian bread (10 to 12 inches)
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
- 1 tablespoon spicy brown or country-style Dijon mustard
- 6 slices (1 oz each) Swiss cheese
- 3/4 lb thinly sliced fully cooked ham
Here’s how you do it:
Heat a gas or charcoal grill. Spray a 25×18-inch sheet of heavy-duty foil with cooking spray.
Without cutting all the way through, cut loaf of bread into 12 (3/4-inch) slices, cutting to within 1/4 inch of bottom.
Next, stir together butter and mustard and then spread every other slice of bread with slightly less than 2 teaspoons mustard mixture, creating 6 sandwiches.
Fold each slice of cheese in half diagonally; tuck each into sandwich. Divide ham evenly among sandwiches, tucking in to fit. Place loaf on center of foil. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion.
Finally, place the foil-wrapped loaf on your grill over medium heat.
Cover the grill and cook 20 to 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and loaf is hot, turning loaf frequently.
To serve, open packet carefully to allow steam to escape. Remove foil from loaf; pull apart sandwiches.
