Food Truck Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

Evening!  I hope you are experiencing the same FABULOUS temps we are!  Spring has sprung, and I couldn't be happier.  Spring is my favorite season, so I am a happy girl!

These sandwiches.  Oh these sandwiches.  Some of my all time favorites.  At a previous place of employment in Jersey, every day around 11 the same food truck would come park outside, (we had a different name for it) and they would have these ham and cheese sandwiches.  They had a tiny bit of a mustard-ish sauce and they were wrapped in foil and I KNOW they had been in that oven for hours, maybe days, God only know but they were SO SO SO SO GOOD!

This is my version of them at home.  Now, I don't know whether this is a real recipe persay, or just a method.  I mean you can change the cheese, the meat, the sauce, but this is MY baked ham and cheese so I am giving you the ingredients I use.  As I always say, the world is your sandwich, make it how you like it!

I am pleased to announce I have found white American cheese in Nebraska.  Oddly, it isn't all American at all, it is an American/Swiss hybrid and it tastes just like WaWa white American cheese used to taste! ACK, I am in heaven.  I literally have a gigantor size square log of it pre sliced, ready for my enjoyment at any moment of the day!

I made 4 sandwiches, but obviously adjust to how many you need.  Such a great quick weeknight or weekend meal and I don't see any problem putting these on your grill either!  Make them all at once, perfect!

For the sauce you will need:
1/4 cup mustard (yellow or Dijon)
1=2 tsp. mayo

Just combine ingredients together in a small bow and set aside.

4 hoagie buns
8 thin slices of ham (if you use shaved that is fine, just get as much as you will want for 4 sammies)
8 slices of white American cheese

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Slice rolls in half length wise.  Slather sauce on one side of the bun. Then  bend a slice cheese in half and use them length wise to cover the bun. 

Add two pieces of ham folded in half. 

Add another slice of halved cheese and put the tops on!  Roll each sandwich in a piece of foil and place on a cookie sheet, and put into your preheated oven for 25-40 minutes.  You can check them at 25 but you want them crispy, crusty and ooey, gooey melty cheese. 

Enjoy these yummy delights!!!
