Easter Ham Leftovers

Now that Easter has come and gone I’m sure many of you have lots of leftover ham from dinner. Here’s a fabulous sandwich that I know you will love. You can serve this on mini party rye bread or have yourself a nice big sandwich.
French-Toasted Ham and Cheese
1 8oz pkg party sliced rye bread or large rye
1 8oz pkg swiss cheese, sliced
leftover sliced ham
Mix next 2 ingredients together:
2 tablespoons of orange marmalade
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
Mix next 2 ingredients together in a bowl:
1/2 cup milk
1 egg beaten
Cut the ham to fit on the slice of rye bread (large or party size); cut cheese and put on top of ham. Put a dot of marmalade mixture on top of the cheese ( a bit more if using a large piece of rye) and then put on the other slice of bread.
Heat oven to 450 deegrees. Melt the 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine on a cookie sheet in the oven.
Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture to cover.
Place sandwich on cookie sheet and grill in oven at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve hot!
This is so scrumptious I just know it will become a favorite of yours. Plus you’ll get through that leftover ham in no time at all.
