Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

  • prep: 20 mins
    total time: 20 mins
  • servings: 4


  • 8 slices sourdough loaf bread
  • 3 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 6 ounces ham, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces arugula
  • 4 ounces Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced


  1. Step 1

    Heat grill to low. Lay slices of bread on a clean work surface; spread with mustard, dividing evenly. To make four sandwiches, layer bread with ham, arugula, cheese, and onion, beginning and ending with cheese.

  2. Step 2

    Place sandwiches on grill; cover grill, and cook until cheese melts, 4 to 5 minutes per side (shift position on grill if necessary to prevent charring).
