My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Grilled Country Ham & Cheese Sandwiches

If you think you have seen this before your are right! It's on the Hellmann's website. It is so easy, so good, and so perfect for this hot weather. It is not your average grilled ham and cheese sandwich. It could be the No Knead Rosemary Bread that I made, but you can use a country-style bread about an 8-inch round loaf will work. Don't omit the apple or the thyme or you're back to a regular old grill ham and cheese.

Serves 4
print recipe

4 tablespoons Hellmann's or Best Foods Real mayonnaise, divided
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
4 slices country-style bread (3/4-inch thick, from an 8-inch round loaf)
8 ounces sliced country ham
2-3-ounces sliced cheddar or Swiss cheese
6 slices Granny Smith apple

1. Combine 2 tablespoons mayonnaise with thyme in small bowl.

2. Evenly spread mayonnaise mixture on bread, then evenly layer remaining ingredients.

3. Preheat grill pan or 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spread remaining 2 tablespoons mayonnaise on outside of sandwiches. Grill turning once, until golden brown, about 8 minutes.
