Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches!

The grilled-stuff bonanza continues with some delicious and ridiculously easy to make grilled "ham and cheese" sandwiches.



This is so simple it can't even be called a recipe. Spread some Earth Balance or other buttery spread on two slices of whole grain bread. Layer vegan ham and cheese on top of a buttered slice-we like Lightlife Smart Deli Baked ham style and a combination of Galaxy Foods Rice Vegan Slices (American flavor) and Vegan Gourmet (Mozzarella). Top with the other slice, buttered-side down, and spread a little Earth Balance on top of the sandwich. Flip and do the same with the bottom.

I like grilling these on my Black & Decker grill/waffle maker on medium heat for about 5 minutes, and then crank up the heat a little for 5 more minutes. The medium heat gives the cheese time to melt and get deliciously gooey. If you're going to grill your sandwich on a skillet, then cover the sandwich with a lid during the first five minutes; this will give the cheese a chance to melt and stick to the bread. Then flip and cook uncovered until the bottom gets nice and toasty. Quick and easy!
