Grilled Cheese With Ham And Pickle Sandwiches

What a VERY tasty combination of flavors. This is the best sandwich ever with loads of ham, gooey cheese and crunchy pickles.

Grilled cheese will never be the same again!

The pickle will stay crunchy and what’s not to love in a grilled cheese with added crunch!

Grilled Cheese With Ham And Pickle


8 slices sourdough or white bread
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 1/2 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese
3/4 cup Bread-and-Butter Pickles
3 ounces thinly sliced smoky ham
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter


Smear both sides of bread slices with mayonnaise.

Sprinkle 4 slices bread with half of cheese, dividing equally. Top each with 3-4 pickles.

Divide ham among sandwiches; top with remaining cheese. Cover with remaining bread.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in each of 2 large heavy skillets over medium-low heat.

Add 2 sandwiches to each skillet and cook until bread is golden, 9-10 minutes.

Add 1 tablespoon butter to each skillet, flip sandwiches, and cook until bread is golden and cheese is melted, 9-10 minutes longer.
