- 1 loaf (1 lb.) French bread
- ¼ cup honey mustard
- 8 slices (¾ to 1 oz. each) Swiss cheese
- 8 slices (¾ to 1 oz. each) Cheddar cheese
- ¼ lb. thinly sliced cooked ham
- ¾ cup strawberry or raspberry preserves (we used strawberry)
- Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Cut out a 30 x 18-inch sheet of heavy-duty foil. Take the French bread and slice it in half horizontally. Take the honey mustard and spread it equally over the two cut sides of the bread halves. Take the bottom half and lay it down on the foil.
- Take the two cheeses as well as the ham and layer them evenly on the bottom half of the bread. Place the top half of the bread over the meat and cheese and wrap the whole loaf up tightly using the double-fold seals method*.
- Place the wrapped loaf in the oven for somewhere between 30 to 30 minutes or however long it takes for the cheese to melt and the loaf sandwich to get heated throughout.
- Pull the loaf out of the oven and carefully unwrap the foil so steam can escape before cutting the loaf up into 6 pieces. Serve the sandwich with the preserves acting as a dip for it.
*We don’t know what they might have meant by “double-fold seals” but this is how we did a double-fold seals:
This is a tasty sandwich ! You will need to eat it right away to fully enjoy the ooey gooey cheese and the crispiness of the bread but the flavors all together are tasty. The sweetness of the honey mustard is a nice contrast against the salty, savory flavor of the ham and cheese. It can be a messy sandwich to enjoy though so we’d recommend having some napkins or paper towels with you while eating this. We tried using the preserves but the flavor overpowered any honey mustard you could taste. For us, the idea of maybe something tangy would be more appealing of a dip to use.
We don’t know where we got this recipe from.
Take care everybody !
