Ham Salad Melts

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by CookinCowgirl

Wondering what to do with left-over ham? I came up with this because I love tuna melts, and thought "what the heck," why not a melt with ham? I serve this with coleslaw or spinach salad with honey mustard bacon dressing.

I made this almost as directed omitting the salt since my leftover ham was a bit salty. The sweet relish is a nice touch. I made my sandwich without the bread and DH's with whole wheat. To make without bread I dished my serving onto an oven-proof plate and broiled until the cheese bubbled. I broiled DH's open-faced rather than skillet cook. Thanks CookinCowgirl! Very good use of leftover ham.
