FRENCH LOAF HAM AND CHEESE

Sometimes I’m not in the mood to cook a huge extravagant meal. Actually – MANY TIMES is more accurate! So I am always trying to find quick and easy meals to fill in for the days I don’t want to cook forever or are busy.

So I decided to try a new take on a hot ham and cheese, to kind of switch things up! This sandwich creation reminds me a bit of a Quizno’s  or Subway sandwich – but way more delicious!

FRENCH BREAD

You can choose to use any type of French bread for your sandwich – soft or crunchy, with or without sesame seeds, etc. You can also use an Italian loaf. 

Toasted French Loaf Ham and Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Ingredients: 

1 loaf of french bread

sliced ham (or use whatever meat you want)

shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Grey Poupon mustard

And Lettuce, tomato and such if you want to add on sandwich.

How to make the toasted french loaf sandwich: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

What I did was cut the loaf of french bread in half length wise so it would be open. I then put some mustard along the one side, tossed on some ham on top of mustard, and put cheese on it. I just sprinkled enough to cover meat, but you can add as much or as little as you want!

Then toss in oven and bake until the cheese is melted and bread is a little crispy, mine took around 10-15 minutes. Note that altitude and such will change cook time!

Once it was done, you take it out and put whatever fixings you want on it then close up the sandwich and eat. I served with waffle fries, but it’s also great with potato chips and/or a green salad to make a more rounded meal.
