Mom’s Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

Are you looking for a good sandwich to make for your family?  I’ve got one right here!  It’s great in that it they can be assembled ahead of time and then are ready to bake after a busy day.

The cornflake topping and touch of dry mustard puts a flavorful spin on these sandwiches filled with turkey, ham and cheddar cheese.  The sandwiches are assembled the day before, then topped with an egg batter, refrigerated and baked the next day before serving. 

This is a unique sandwich and I’m not sure where Mom found it but, it makes a great sandwich!  It could probably be compared to a Monte Cristo, except that this one is baked and not deep fried.  It’s a tasty sandwich and I’m sure you won’t be having any leftovers! 

I do not recommend enjoying it like Chuck is though!

Mom’s Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches


16 slices bread, crust trimmed
8 slices ham
8 slices turkey or chicken
8 slices medium cheddar cheese

1 stick melted butter


Make single layer of 8 slices bread in a baking dish.
Top each slice with ham, turkey and cheese.
Place remaining 8 slices of bread on top.

Pour over the sandwiches.
Refrigerate over-nite.
Next day before baking, combine corn flakes with melted butter.

It’s a ham sandwich kicked up a notch!  Yum!

P.S. Up to a foot of snow headed this way later today!  Wish you were here!
