Gentlemen's Morsels

    Classic, yet unexpected combination. I had just one for a snack. This reminded me of something, but I'm not sure what -- maybe I've just had something similar at catered events.

    I just made this simple sandwich for my own lunch. (Therefore, I downsized the recipe to just one sandwich.) I used a hearty 7-grain bread and shaved smoked turkey instead of the ham. The combo of the sweet preserves, smokey, shaved meat, and tangy mustard are a hit. This will find its way into my lunch box often.

    You must use the best of everything here as it is so very simple. Delicious and satisfying, a nice balance of flavours and textures. My ham was a little dry so I did put some butter on the bread.
