The traditional method is to use Pastrami,
although I had Ham on-hand today ~
These are superb!

Serves: 2
Prep: 5 Mins. |
Grill: 4 to 6 Mins.


2 teaspoon unsalted butter, at room temp
4 slices whole wheat bread
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1-1/2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon gherkins, finely chopped
½ teaspoon lemon juice
4 slices *Dubliner cheese (or Jarlsberg or Swiss)
4 thin slices of quality ham
4 tablespoons sauerkraut, squeezed dry

***Suggested serving options:
--Prepared French fries, with ketchup for dipping
--2 dill pickles, halved lengthwise


On a paper towel, spread each slice of bread with butter on one side, and flip them over.

Mix mayonnaise, ketchup, sweet pickles, lemon juice in a small bowl, and spread on each bread slice (non-buttered sides). Top spread with half the cheese, ham, sauerkraut, and remaining cheese. Top with other bread slices (sauce-side down).

Heat a large non-stick grill (or regular) skillet over medium heat. Grill sandwiches for 2-3 minutes on each side until bread is golden and cheese melts. Cut each sandwich diagonally in half and serve with French fries and ketchup for dipping, and dill pickle slices.


(*) – We purchased the 2-lb. Irish Dubliner cheese from Costco ~ It has a very distinct flavor with a hint of sweetness, and it's a fine melting cheese.  It’s also delicious as a snack with sliced apples!

What nice sandwiches that takes only about 10 minutes to make, but they're oh so tasty!
