    My mom used to make a quicker and easier version of this sandwich with an egg. Simply put the ham and cheese between the bread, no need to butter. Dip the sandwich in to a beaten egg (you can add herbs if you want) and cook in a non stick pan or grilled cheese machine (or whatever they're called!)

    This is a good one. Kids can do this for their Mothers and Fathers Day spread. Time saving by baking the prepared sandwich in the oven and not grilling as you would a grilled cheese sandwich. Make enough for a bite later in the day.
