    ChefDLH's Note:

    This is a recipe that I found in Paula Deen's special magazine publication May/June 2009. It is the party issue. This recipe was inhaled by guests and family at our house. It is definitely time consuming so plan on it taking more time than you think but it is worth it. It is definitely a keeper flavor wise as the caramelized onions bring out the ham and cheeses. The honey mustard mayo is a great undercurrent. Great for parties and gatherings like baby showers, showers, brunches, etc. Enjoy! ChefDLH

      There are few things in life that I enjoy more than a good ham and cheese sandwich, and this is takes it to the next level! The flavors were spot on with the caramelized onion, honey mustard, mayo. And the puff pastry really makes this look and feel quite elegant. I subbed smoked gouda for the mozzarella, but otherwise made as written.
