Menu Monday: Gourmet Roast Beef & Ham Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Menu Monday is finally here…. I am so excited about this, I’ve been planning this for so so long. I am just ecstatic I finally got around to doing it. This homemade ‘Gourmet’ Roast Beef & Ham Grilled Cheese Sandwich has an amalgam of flavours. It is without a doubt the best thing I’ve made all week (Let’s all forget that it’s just the start of the week oookay).
I have a thing for a good sandwiches. I have never been the slam Polony on bread and consider it a sandwich type of person. Seriously! Try me out with some mayo and lettuce. A grilled cheese sandwich was appropriate for six-year-old Miri (without the crusts, please) and I still consider it a perfectly sophisticated treat today.
What we have here is the love child between a perfectly healthy sandwich and cheddar cheese. I know everyone can make a grilled cheese sandwich, yes. But this isn’t just your average grilled cheese, it’s far from it. I put together slices of cheddar cheese, shredded roast beef, shredded ham, tomato, avocado, some salt, pepper and mixed herbs just for control, lol.
