S. Chokel

Serves/Makes:6

Ingredients
  • 12 slices pumpernickel bread
  • your favorite mustard (We like a French coarse ground, white wine spiked mustard)
  • 1 lb (.5 kg). thinly sliced smoked ham (quality is VERY important here)
  • 1 lb (.5 kg). thinly sliced Brie cheese
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) unsalted butter, softened to spead
Preparation
  • Butter each slice of bread on one side only.
  • Turn six slices of the bread on the buttered side to the preparation area.
  • Spread those open sided slices of bread with the mustard.
  • Next, layer with the ham and Brie.
  • Spread the other six slices of bread with mustard on the unbuttered side.
  • Place these slices mustard side down on top of the ham and brie.
  • Heat a skillet, electric frying pan or griddle to medium heat and grill sandwiches.
  • When bottom is golden brown and the cheese beings to melt more (as brie is very soft to begin with), turn them over and grill to a light golden brown.
  • Serve with slices of Apples and Pears lightly drizzled with chilled white wine.
Comments
EASILY increased or decreased as need of servings dictate. I have served these many times as dinner when it is just my husband and myself and we want to enjoy a tasty and simple meal.

This is an excellent sandwich to serve with the Spring Harvest of Fresh Asparagus!! The fruit, sandwich and asparagus is so delicious and a pretty spring presentation!
