Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches with Bacon

It's the third week of Summer Break. So far, I've attended the required, one week Pre-AP training at UT (University of Texas) and almost completed a two week Writer's Workshop training. The great thing about professional development is you're out of training at 4 or 4:30. No grading papers. No after-school meetings. No cleaning up. So, I am home in time to make dinner for Joshua and the girls. 

I came across hot ham and cheese sandwiches from pinofyum. I paired the sandwiches up with Kettle chips (roasted garlic for me, pepperoncini for Joshua). While we liked the sandwiches overall, next time we will make some changes: omit the onions, reduce the butter and bacon, and replace Swiss cheese with Provolone cheese & Hawaiian bread with regular hamburger buns. 

Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches
(original recipe from pinofyum)


4 slices bacon
4 tablespoons salted butter, divided
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 package hamburger buns
1 pkg. sliced ham
4 slices of Provolone cheese

1. Fry the bacon until crispy. Place on paper towels to drain.
2. Melt the remaining butter and whisk with the mustard and Worcestershire sauce.
3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut foil into large squares for wrapping each sandwich. 
4. Brush the bottom of each bun with butter mixture on both sides. Top with ham, bacon, and cheese. Brush the top of the bun with butter on both sides, place on the sandwich, and wrap with foil. Repeat for remaining sandwiches. You can heat sandwiches in a baking dish covered with foil, if you don’t want to wrap each sandwich.  
5. Bake for 20 minutes or until warmed through and cheese is melted.
