Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 10


  • 1 loaf French bread
  • mayonnaise
  • dijon mustard
  • 1/4 lb thinly sliced ham
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • sliced dill pickles
  • butter


Slice the bread in half lengthwise. Spread one half with mayonnaise and the other with mustard. Layer the ham and Swiss cheese on one half of the bread. Layer the pickle slices over the cheese. Top with the other bread half. In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat enough butter to coat the cooking surface. Place the sandwich in the pan and weight with another heavy pan or a brick wrapper in foil and grill until the cheese is melted. Cut the loaf to make 4 sandwiches.
