Dragon's Grilled Ham & Cheese Sandwich

Dragon's Grilled Ham & Cheese Sandwich
Recipe by Dragon

This isn't your average sandwich; this is Dragon's grilled ham and cheese sandwich, baby. This simple sandwich can be made with any type of ham or cheese. I usually just use what I have on hand but my favourite combination is prosciutto and an old sharp cheddar. Enjoy!

Makes 1 sandwich

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
2 slices of sourdough bread
2 slices of prosciutto
2 slices old sharp cheddar
2 thin slices of tomato
cracked black pepper to taste
6 fresh basil leaves
1 tablespoon butter

Directions:
1. In small bowl combine mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese and mix well. Spread on one side of each piece of bread.

2. Make sandwiches with the coated bread by layering cheese, prosciutto, tomato slices, pepper and basil leaves.

3. Spread soften butter on the outside of the bread slices.

4. Grill sandwich on panini grill or griddle until toasted and crisp.

Fabulous looking sandwich. The basil with the prosciutto is interesting. I've made basil mayonnaise many times and it is great on sandwiches. This picture looks good enough to eat. I'm getting out my panini press and trying this one.
