What I Eat

Grilled Ham & Cheese With Tangerine Segments

Serves: 1

1-1.5 oz. ham steak*
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 slices of bread that is not made with enriched flour
2 slices cheese (I used American cheese. However, it would be better to use a cheese that is not processed.)
1 tangerine

*I like to use a fully cooked hickory smoked ham steak. According to the package directions, it can be heated up in the microwave in a covered dish with 1/4 cup water for 4 minutes. If your grocery store doesn’t sell that, any cooked ham will work.

Heat ham and blot moisture off with a paper towel. Brush butter on one side of each slice of bread. Pour remaining butter into a non-stick skillet and brush around the bottom of the pan. Put a slice of bread, butter side down, in the skillet. Top bread with a slice of cheese and a piece of ham. Top the ham with another slice of cheese and the other slice of bread, butter side up. Cook on medium heat. Flip sandwich over until golden brown on both sides. Peel tangerine and separate segments. Have with a glass of water.

Oven Directions:
Instead of toasting the sandwiches on a skillet, put them on a pan in an oven preheated to 450 degrees. Bake sandwiches for 8 minutes. Flip and bake for another 5 to 8 minutes or until the sandwiches are golden brown on both sides.
