If you're searching for a quick weeknight meal that the whole family will enjoy, try these tasty sandwiches that come together in just 20 minutes. Ham and cheese gets sophisticated with the addition of rosemary and Gruyere. It’s part French, part Swiss and totally delicious. Three different cheeses make these sandwiches extra rich and creamy. We found 1 teaspoon to be the perfect amount of rosemary for this recipe. Rosemary can be overpowering if you use too much. You can also cook these sandwiches in a Panini press.

Ingredients

low fat cream cheese

2 tsp

Dijon mustard

2 tsp

rosemary

1 tsp, fresh, minced

Swiss cheese

¼ cup(s), shredded, or Gruyere cheese

part-skim mozzarella cheese

¼ cup(s), shredded

extra lean 4% fat deli-sliced ham

3 oz

reduced-calorie whole wheat bread

4 slice(s)

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, mustard and rosemary. In another bowl, combine both types of cheese.
  2. Place bread on a flat surface and evenly divide cream cheese mixture across all four bread slices. Top each of two bread slices with 2 tablespoons Gruyere mixture and 1 1/2 ounces ham; sprinkle each with another 2 tablespoons Gruyere mixture. Cover sandwiches with remaining bread slices, spread-side down.
  3. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. When hot, cook sandwiches until cheese is melted, pressing down a few times, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Yields 1 sandwich per serving.
