Grilled Ham, Muenster, and Spinach Sandwiches

Spinach offers a vitamin-rich alternative to lettuce in this sandwich. Chowchow is a mustard-flavored mixed vegetable and pickle relish available on the condiment aisle. Often served alongside pork and cooked greens, here it adds a subtle tang that complements the ham and spinach.

Prep: 7 minutes; Cook: 4 minutes
