One of America’s Favorites – Ham and Cheese Sandwich

Ham sandwich made with focaccia bread, with lettuce and mustard

The ham sandwich is a common type of sandwich. The bread may be fresh or toasted, and it can be made with a variety of toppings including cheese and vegetables like lettuce, tomato, onion or pickle slices. 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 sandwiches are quick and easy to prepare. They are a common component of a packed lunch.

The British Sandwich Association says that the ham sandwich is the most popular sandwich in the UK, and a survey they conducted in 2001 saw ham as the second favorite filling behind cheese. 70% of the 1.8 billion sandwiches eaten in France in 2008 were ham sandwiches, prompting a French economic analysis firm to begin a ‘jambon-beurre index’, like the Big Mac Index, to compare prices across the country.

A grilled ham and cheese sandwich, in a cast iron frying pan (croque-monsieur style)

The world’s longest ham sandwich was created by butcher Nico Jimenez in Pamplona, Spain in 2009.

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

In Brazilian cuisine, this sandwich roasted is known as misto-quente (“hot mix” in literal translation).

The Cuban sandwich is made with ham, cheese, and crusty Cuban bread, often toasted in a panini press. Variations of this sandwich are popular in both Cuba and South Florida.

One of America’s Favorites – French Dip

Roast Beef Dip au jus, with French fries

A French dip sandwich, also known as a beef dip, is a hot sandwich consisting of thinly sliced roast beef (or, sometimes, other meats) on a “French roll” or baguette. It is usually served plain but a variation is to top with Swiss cheese, onions, and a dipping container of beef broth produced from the cooking process (termed au jus, “with juice”). Beef stock, a light beef gravy, or beef consommé is sometimes substituted. The sandwich is an American invention, with the name seeming to refer to the style of bread, rather than any French origin. Although the sandwich is most commonly served with a cup of jus or broth on the side of the plate, into which the sandwich is dipped as it is eaten, this is not how the sandwich was served when it was invented.

Two Los Angeles restaurants have claimed to be the birthplace of the French dip sandwich: Cole’s Pacific Electric Buffet and Philippe the Original. Philippe’s website describes the dish as a “specialty of the house”, and the words “Home of the Original French Dip Sandwich” are present in the restaurant’s logo. At Phillippe’s, the roll is dipped in the hot beef juices before the sandwich is assembled, and is served “wet”, while at Cole’s it is served with a side of beef juices. The sandwich can also be requested “double dipped”, where both halves of the sandwich are dipped before serving, at either establishment. Both restaurants feature their own brand of spicy mustard that is traditionally used by patrons to complement the sandwich.

A French dip sandwich

The controversy over who originated the sandwich remains unresolved. Both restaurants were established in 1908. However, Cole’s claims to have originated the sandwich shortly after the restaurant opened in 1908, while Philippe’s claims that owner Philippe Mathieu invented it in 1918.

The story of the sandwich’s invention by Philippe’s has several variants: some sources say that it was first created by a cook or a server who, while preparing a sandwich for a police officer or fireman, accidentally dropped it into a pan of meat drippings. The patron liked it, and the dish surged in popularity shortly after its invention. Other accounts say that a customer who didn’t want some meat drippings to go to waste requested his sandwich be dipped in them. Still others say that a chef dipped a sandwich into a pan of meat drippings after a customer complained that the bread was stale. Cole’s account states that the sandwich was invented by a sympathetic chef, Jack Garlinghouse, for a customer who was complaining of sore gums. Some accounts tell Philippe’s version of events, but assign the location to Cole’s. The mystery of the sandwich’s invention might not be solved due to a lack of information and observable evidence.

The French dip is now served at a number of restaurant chains including fast food places, diners, and standard restaurants. A sandwich based on a similar concept is known as a Baron of beef.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Sandwich


For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another chilly Spring Day out there. Very Windy, Rain, Snow and Sleet with a high of41 degrees but the wind chill was in the low 30’s. Where is our warm weather? Good news is a high of 68 degrees tomorrow and the 70’s next week! Maybe I can get my Garden planted. Not much going on today. Did some laundry and did some cleaning. For Dinner tonight I’m having a Turkey Sandwich.


For the Turkey I used the Leftover Jennie – O Turkey Breast! That made such a Delicious Meal last night with all the sides. So there was no way that the Turkey would go to waste. I have left part of yesterday’s post at the end of the post for description and directions.


To make my Sandwich I used the Leftover Turkey, Blackberry Glaze, Swiss Cheese, and Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread. Just pile it on and enjoy your Sandwich! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. Take Care and Stay Safe All!










For the Turkey I used the Jennie – O Oven Ready Skinless Boneless Turkey Breast. Such an easy way to have a moist and fantastic tasting Turkey, along with little to clean-up! Comes in a Jennie O Turkey Breast Oven Ready Bag, that you bake at 375 degrees for about 2 to 3 hour until it reads 165 degrees. The Turkey comes out moist, juicy and delicious, with an excellent flavor! So cooking usually for just myself and Mom, it’s just the right size (2-3 lbs.). Enough leftovers for Dinner tomorrow. I also prepared a Blackberry Glaze, which works great on Turkey or Pork! To make the Blackberry Glaze I’ll need Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam, Red Wine Vinegar, Splenda Sugar, and Ground Cinnamon. I left the recipe for this at the end of the post.

Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Boneless Skinless Turkey Breast
Whether it’s a holiday or an everyday meal, JENNIE-O® OVEN READY™ Boneless Turkey Breast is the perfect solution for you. OVEN READY™ goes straight from your freezer, to your oven, no thawing needed.

To learn more on cooking an OVEN READY™ Turkey, make sure to watch our simple How-To Video, and locate an OVEN READY™ Turkey in the freezer section of your grocery store.



Place cooking bag with frozen turkey in the bottom of the slow cooker. Add one cup water to the crock pot. Cut three 1/2 inch slits in top of fool-proof cooking bag. Cook for approximately 3-1/2 hours with the slow cooker in high setting or 5 on low setting.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Remove frozen turkey from white outer package. Do not remove turkey from cooking bag. Place in a roasting pan with at least 2″ high sides.

Do not increase oven temperature. Cooking bag may melt at higher temperatures. Cut three 1/2 inch slits in top of cooking bag. Place pan in oven, allowing room for bag to expand without touching the oven racks or walls. Roast the turkey until a meat thermometer reaches 165°F.

Meat temperature increases rapidly during last hour of cooking. Let turkey rest 10 minutes, cut open top of oven bag. Be cautious of hot steam and juices. Heat gravy as directed on pouch.

1 hour 40 minutes in 375 °F.
1 hour in 375 °F.



1⁄2 cup Smucker’s Sugarfree Blackberry Jam
2 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
1 tablespoon Splenda sugar substitute
1⁄4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

Whisk Blackberry Jam, Red Wine Vinegar, Splenda, and Cinnamon in a small bowl. Then let it chill in the fridge until time to serve.

Mushroom-Swiss Turkey Burgers
In this gluten-free turkey burger recipe, lean ground turkey stands in for ground beef, and portobello mushrooms produce a juicy, flavorful alternative to the traditional bun. Melted Swiss cheese, sliced tomato and arugula top off this delicious low-carb dinner!…..

Classic Hamburger
Slow-cooked onions add moisture and flavor to these lean beef burgers. A quick blend of mayonnaise, ketchup, relish and vinegar makes a perfect tangy, sweet and creamy “special sauce” for this burger. We love the dill relish here, but use sweet relish if you prefer it. Serve with sweet potato fries……
