  1. Preheat oven to 350°; fill a deep skillet of water to a depth of 4 inches; add in vinegar and bring to a steady simmer.
  2. Arrange halves of muffins (tops and bottoms)on a baking sheet; using a 3 inch round biscuit cutter, cut each slice into a round.
  3. Cut the cheese into 3-inch rounds using a round biscuit cutter.
  4. Place a slice of cheese on each of the bottom halves.
  5. Cut the ham into shreds or ribbons and place on top of the cheese.
