Ham and Swiss with a Twist
I like to call this a gourmet twisted version of a ham and cheese. Crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside, and a hint of apples and jam? Sounds weird I know....but you HAVE to try this!
4 slices of bread (I used Country Potato Bread)
4 tsp. light margarine spread (I can't believe it's not butter!)
2 Tbs. light Jam (I used blueberry)
4 slices Swiss cheese
10 slices of deli Ham
1 large apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced (you only use about half)
Heat a flat skillet to medium heat. Butter two slices of bread on one side, and place butter side down in the skillet. Add a slice of Swiss to each, and then top with a layer of thin sliced apple. Lay the 5 slices of deli ham on top of the apple slices. Butter one side of each of the remaining two slices of bread. Hold gently in your hand, butter side towards your hand, and spread 1 Tbs. of jam on the inside in an even layer. Place a slice of Swiss on top of the ham, and place the bread jam side down on top. By now it is probably time to flip the sandwiches, so check to make sure the bottom is golden brown, and flip them. Cook for another minute and a half to two minutes until the opposite side is a nice golden brown. Let cool slightly before slicing so that the cheese doesn't slide out of the sandwich.
