What do your kids do when you announce it’s sandwich night…..again?  Grunts, sighs, and some eye rolling happen in my house.  We have had quite a few sandwiches this summer, so I came up with a way to spice it up a bit.  I learned this trick at BlogHer last weekend, and it worked PERFECTLY for dinner tonight.  Instead of the “ugh, not sandwiches again!” response, I got, “Oh cool! Ham waffles!”  Um, ok, we’ll go with that..


Simple Ham and Cheese Panini

(makes one sandwich)


2 slices bread

2 oz. best quality sliced smoked ham

2 teaspoons honey mustard

1 slice sharp cheddar cheese

1 teaspoon salted butter


Heat waffle iron to high.  Assemble sandwich.  Butter the waffle iron and place sandwich inside.  Cook until brown and crispy.
