Hot Open-Faced Sandwich

I used to get this all the time at a nearby coffee shop when I was in college, and it's still a favorite lunch. At home, I generally use whole wheat instead of the original white bread, mustard instead of mayonnaise and a slice of processed cheddar cheese instead of American. Tastes great either way. Really be generous with the pepper!

  2. In sequence, place on the bread the ham, cheese& tomato.
  3. Generously shake pepper over all.
  4. Place under broiler until cheese starts to melt.

I used multi-grain bread that I toasted before spreading with a mustard/mayo blend. I layered shaved honey ham with an American cheese slice and 3 slices of a roma tomato. Mmmmm. Very simple and yummy for a late morning breakfast.

I made this for a snack last night. Nice and easy also very tasty. I used whole wheat bread and shaved black forest ham. Thanks
