Minute Meal Monday!

Looking for a yummy lunch idea? This super tasty ham melt from Martha Stewart is dynamite!


whole-wheat sandwich bread

yellow mustard

sharp cheddar cheese, thinly sliced

ham, thinly sliced

Fuji apple, cored and cut into 1/4-inch-thick rings

unsalted butter, softened


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread half the bread slices with mustard. Layer with cheddar, ham, apple, and more cheddar, dividing evenly. Top with remaining bread slices. Lightly butter both sides of sandwiches.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Cook sandwiches, turning once, until bread is golden, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer sandwiches to a rimmed baking sheet. Bake in oven until cheddar is melted, about 5 minutes. Cut each sandwich in half on the diagonal, and serve warm.

Cucumber infused water is an excellent way to take the taste of nothing out of your water, staying hydrated is key during the summer months.  A simple side of watermelon and feta cheese is a great way to round out his meal that gives you a healthy amount from each food group!

Have a happy day!
