Directions

  1. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Spread one side of each slice of bread with 1 teaspoon butter. Place one slice, butter-side down in the hot skillet. Top with Swiss cheese and ham. Spread the unbuttered side of the second slice of bread with mayonnaise and mustard; place it, butter-side up on top of the sandwich. Cook until the sandwich is golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes per side.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • I add spinach, arugula, tomatoes, roasted peppers, chopped olives, artichokes, or a spoonful of salsa to the sandwich depending on my mood and what's in the fridge.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Yum! Great sandwich! I love swiss cheese so I had to try this. I used light mayo and smoked ham. As the submitter states, this is very good with tomato soup. I'm a huge fan of "Rachel's Toma...

I make these same sandwich sometimes too and it's very good. You really can't go wrong with these ingredients. Whole grain mustard is a must in my opinion. Sometimes I use honey mustard and p...

Different cheeses work too. I like to quickly saute the ham before it goes on the sammie.

I made these sandwiches for our lunch today and they were awesome!!! The only things I did different was I added a tomato and used white bread. I also made baKed french fries I from this site. ...

These were really good. I used leftover sliced ham, in lieu of deli ham. I wasn't sure about the mayo and mustard, but it really was a great addition. A nice change from the old standby grill...

They were so good! Even son kept saying so!

I really like grilled ham and cheese but never thought of adding mayo or mustard, for that matter. I had to use the regular prepared mustard, with the mayo, and it was really good! Reading below...

This sandwich is my absolute favorite on a chilly day. I used spicy brown mustard and it was fabulous. I paired mine with a side of cottage cheese and pineapple.
