Today’s Menu: Hickory Smoked Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Baked Fingerling Potato Wedges and Green Beans

 

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Meijer Diced Ham,and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns and served.And had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly sunny and a bit more humid outside today. I took Mom’s car up to be washed then stopped by the ATM, the Post Office, and stopped and got gas. Back home, kicked back the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Hickory Smoked Ham and Swiss Cheese Sandwich w/ Baked Fingerling Potato Wedges and Green Beans.

 

The other day at Meijer I bought a Kentucky Legend Hickory Smoked Ham. It was a small 2 1/2 lb. Ham, and it looked delicious as always! I’ve baked a couple of these now and really enjoy them. Having it for Dinner tonight.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the Kentucky Legend ham from the packaging and place it in a baking dish that’s at least 2 inches deep. Add enough water to just cover the bottom of the pan. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil. Crimp the edges of the foil tightly over the pan edges to prevent steam from escaping. Place the baking dish into the oven and heat the ham until a meat thermometer shows an internal temperature of at least 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The amount of time this takes depends on the size and shape of the ham. Mine took 80minutes. When the Ham is heated through, remove the baking pan from the oven. Leave the foil on the pan for 15 minutes to rest the meat before removing it and carving.

 

I then began slicing it, I sliced it somewhat thin. I’m using Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and I’ll need Boar’s Head Imported Switzerland Swiss Cheese. I assembled my Sandwich, Ham, French’s Spicy Brown Mustard, served on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. What a Sandwich! The Ham is delicious and moist. Excellent Ham Sandwich! Mom thought it was one of the best tasting Hams she ever had, and I agree! We had plenty of leftovers. Kept some out for Breakfast and froze another bag.

 

 

 

For a side I prepared some more of the Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. Started by washing the Potatoes off in cold water. I then cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with. Using a cookie sheet lined with foil I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. Still can’t figure out why it’s so hard to find Fingerling Potatoes in this area. Still only 1 store around here locally that sells them, so thank you Jungle Jim’s!

 

 


I also heated up some leftover Green Beans. These are the fresh Green Beans we had purchased from Jungle Jim’s Still delicious! Quite a Dinner tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

One of America’s Favorites – Ham and Cheese Sandwich

A grilled ham and cheese sandwich, in a cast iron frying pan

A ham and cheese sandwich is a common type of sandwich. It is made by putting cheese and sliced ham between two slices of bread. The bread is sometimes buttered and/or toasted. Vegetables like lettuce, tomato, onion or pickle slices can also be included. Various kinds of mustard and mayonnaise are also common.

Sliced bread, sliced cheese, and sliced cooked ham are very readily available in Western supermarkets and as a result ham and cheese sandwiches are quick and easy to prepare. They are a common component of a packed lunch.

 

As recalled by ballpark concessionaire Harry Stevens in a 1924 interview, in 1894 ham and cheese sandwiches were the only food sold in New York baseball parks; frankfurters were introduced in 1909.

Open-faced ham and cheese tapas-style sandwiches

An Englishwoman, writing in 1923 of her passage through Ellis Island on a trip to the U.S., noted:

I was in fear and trembling, having heard so many tales of the abuse aliens receive there…. The attendants were very kind and not at all rough with us. It was the noon hour… in a little while porters came along with baskets of very good ham and cheese sandwiches and coffee for the grown-ups and milk for the babies.
Richard E. Byrd took ham and cheese sandwiches on his 1926 polar flight as did 1927 transatlantic fliers Chamberlin and Levine.

 

The origin of the ham and cheese sandwich has been debated for a number of years by culinary intellectuals. The leading theory as to who first started to produce a ham, cheese and bread dish is mentioned in The Larousse Gastronomique 1961. Here it notes that Patrick Connolly, an 18th-century Irish immigrant to England, sold a bread dish which:

Home made ham and cheese sandwich

“combined the remains of pig, cured and sliced with a topping of Leicester cheese and a kiss of egg yolk sauce (a form of mayonnaise) in a round bread roll. The dish was rather unimaginatively known as a Connolly and is still sometimes referred to as this in some parts of the Midlands in the UK.”

In the UK, a common addition to a ham and cheese sandwich is pickle (a sweet, vinegary chutney originally by Branston); the snack is then known as a ham, cheese and pickle sandwich.

 

 

In French cuisine, a croque-monsieur is a type of ham and cheese sandwich. It is topped with cheese and baked or fried.

Today’s Menu: Ham, Eggs, Hash Browns, and Toast

 

 


For Breakfast this Morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. At 10:30 this morning we had to be over at the office of where Dad is staying. We are applying for Medicade for Dad. They seem to want everything you have but your first-born children. Hope we get it worked out, very stressful! Rain showers this morning and very windy. There’s a lot of flooding all over the area, even had a Tornado watch last night. Very windy and a of 40 today, but the wind chill made it about 30. For Dinner tonight I wanted some Breakfast! So Breakfast it is, I prepared Ham, Eggs, Hash Browns, and Toast.

 

 

Breakfast for Dinner sounded perfect for Dinner tonight! I sliced up the rest of our Ham off the bone, I had prepared the Ham the day before. The Ham is so moist and delicious! We used Cook’s Bone In Ham. To prepare it I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. I then took a few slices of it and reheated it i tin the skillet for about 5 minutes. I love this Ham! It has such good flavor, perfect for Breakfast or Dinner.

 

 

 

Next I used the same skillet and I prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg. Fried it on medium low, seasoned with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper.

 

 

 

As the the Ham and Egg were cooking, in another skillet I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. I love these, I could have them every day! Again I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. I fried these for 14 minutes. When done I sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

 

 

 

 

Finally I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Topped them with some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Had a glass of 2% White Milk to drink. I had one hearty Comfort Food Dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns fry up perfectly to a crisp, golden brown because they’re made from quality potatoes. They’re always fresh, never frozen so you’ll never have to worry about freezer burn. Fresh, delicious potatoes mean you never have to sacrifice great homemade taste.

Today’s Menu: Ham Sandwich w/ Applewood Smoked Bacon Potato Casserole

 

 

For Breakfast this I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam, Love that Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well Winter just will not go away! Overnight a snow system moved through and gave us over an inch of snow. It melted pretty quick though as we had a of 52 degrees for the day. After Breakfast I went up to Kroger, they had Hams on sale and Bought a Cook’s Semi-Boneless Ham. It was close to 7 3/4 lbs. and got it for $6.21. We usually have a Ham for Easter but went to Easter Dinner at a Family member. I love a good baked Ham and to me the leftovers are the best part! Ham Sandwiches like tonight and fried Ham for Breakfast. Dad is doing a lot better today, he’s getting to know everyone and adjusting to it. We sure do miss him here at home! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Ham Sandwich w/ Applewood Smoked Bacon Potato Casserole.

 

We almost always use Cook’s Ham when we bake a Ham. So with the Ham I baked earlier, we made some into Ham Sandwiches. Just took a few slices and serving it on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. The Ham is so delicious and moist. And as always with Cook’s Ham, perfect seasoning! We’ll have quite a few Breakfasts and Lunches out of this.

 

 

 

 

I served the Ham on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I was going to add Mayo or Mustard but I just wanted the taste of that delicious Ham!

 

 

 

 

 

To go with the Ham I prepared a box of Idahoan Applewood Smoked Bacon Homestyle Casserole. Like the other Idahoan dishes their a breeze to prepare and a delicious Potato Dish. And like the others this turned out fantastic! Very well seasoned, and you can taste that Applewood bacon flavor. I love my Potatoes! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

* Last minute add was Del Monte Cut Green Beans

 

 

 

Cook’s Hams

Semi-Boneless Hams
Classic Reduced Sodium Half (Serves: 15-20)
Half (Serves: 15-20)
Whole (Serves: 30-40)
Semi-Boneless Hams
Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are now fully cooked! This means they may be eaten cold or heated. The ham only needs to be heated through if serving warm.
With fewer bones and less fat, Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are a great value. With two of the three bones removed, carving and serving are much easier. With only the center bone remaining, your family can still can enjoy the great taste and flavor that only a Cook’s bone-in ham can offer, plus the added value of more lean meat and the convenience of less bone.

Ingredients
CURED WITH: Water, Dextrose, Salt, Sodium Phosphate, Sodium Nitrite.

Idahoan Applewood Smoked Bacon Homestyle Casserole
The saying is “everything is better with bacon” and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why we incorporated Applewood Smoked Bacon in with our rich cheesy sauce for this homestyle casserole that is sure to become a family favorite.
