Grilled Ham and Cheese with Tomato

Cooking Light
Wheat bread would be a good stand-in for the white bread in this modified ham-and-cheese sandwich. A creamy spread of sour cream, Dijon mustard, and Parmesan cheese adds lots of flavor.
4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)


+ Add To Shopping List
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1 tablespoon grated fresh Parmesan cheese
8 (1 1/2-ounce) slices hearty white bread
16 (1/2-ounce) slices 33%-less- sodium ham
8 (1/8-inch-thick) slices tomato (about 1 medium)
8 (1/2-ounce) slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese
2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
Cooking spray


Combine mustard, sour cream, and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl.

Spread 2 teaspoons mustard mixture over each bread slice. Top each of the 4 bread slices with 4 ham slices, 2 tomato slices, 2 cheese slices, and 1/2 teaspoon fresh chives. Top with the remaining bread slices. Lightly coat outside of bread with cooking spray.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 2 sandwiches to pan. Place a cast-iron or heavy skillet on top of sandwiches; press gently to flatten. Cook 3 minutes on each side or until cheese melts and bread is toasted (leave cast-iron skillet on sandwiches while they cook). Repeat with the remaining sandwiches.
