Revved Up Grilled Ham & Cheese Sandwich
- 2 slices Italian bread
- 4 slices ham, cut thin
- 2 slices mozzarella cheese, cut thin
- 2 slices tomato, cut thin
- Garlic powder NOT garlic salt
- ⅛ tsp. ground thyme
- 2 tbsp. butter or so
Preheat a heavy 8-10 inch skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.
Spread the butter on the inside of each slice of bread. Sprinkle on a little garlic powder. Grill bread buttered side down until lightly browned. Remove bread to cutting board.
Reduce heat to medium.
Lay one slice of cheese on toasted side of bread, then sprinkle on thyme. Add ham and tomato. Top with another slice of cheese. Cover with the second slice of bread, butter the outside, and sprinkle on a little garlic powder.
Place the buttered side of the sandwich in the pan and fry until the bottom slice is browned to your taste. While that cooks, butter the outside of the top slice and sprinkle on a little garlic powder.
Flip the sandwich and fry until it reaches the color your like. Cover the pan so the cheese melts thoroughly.
