Griddled Ham and Cheese

Griddled Ham and Cheese

The griddled ham and cheese is a simple dish for a quick comfort food fix. There are only a few ingredients involved in this preparation so the quality of all of the components is very important. We recommend a good thick cut country white bread or your favorite bread, dijonnaise, pimento cheese and our sliced ham. A few of your favorite pickles won’t hurt either.


For Pimento Cheese:
½ pound sharp cheddar
grated oz cream cheese
¼ cup mayonnaise (Duke’s Mayo recommended)
½ cup fine diced roasted peppers or pimentos
1 tsp smoked or sweet paprika
1 tbsp pickle juice
salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

For Sandwich Fixins:
1 lb Grass Roots' Hickory Smoked Thinly Sliced Ham
8 slices of your favorite bread
½ cup dijonnaise (½ and ½ mayo and dijon mustard)
1 cup pimento cheese
½ cup pickles
4 tbsp butter, softened

  • Mix all Pimento cheese ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate. This can be made a couple of days ahead of time. It is better if it sits for 24 hours.

  • Preheat a griddle or cast iron skillet on medium heat.

  • Cook the ham in the skillet for about a minute on both sides.

  • Build the sandwiches so that there is a layer of ham on either side, with the pimento cheese and pickles in the middle.

  • Spread the softened butter on the outer layer of bread and griddle both sides until golden brown and the cheese melts.

  • Serve & enjoy!
