6 slices firm, thinly sliced closetextured white bread

3 tablespoons sweet butter, softened

3 thin slices honey cured ham

1/4 pound sliced Gruyere cheese, white cheddar, Swiss, or other medium firm cheese


  1. To assemble the sandwiches, butter both sides of each slice of bread. Then lay the ham and cheese on one slice and cover with a second slice of bread. Trim the crusts off the sides of the sandwiches. Heat a saute pan over medium low heat, then fry the sandwiches until the cheese starts to melt and the sandwiches are golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side. You may need to add more butter to the pan. Remove the sandwiches to paper towels to drain, let them cool for 1 minute, then cut into quarters diagonally and serve 3 quarters each per serving;
