Sometimes, you just need to drop everything and make a toasted cheese sandwich…because it’s the ultimate comfort food. And some of those times, you need to kick the ingredients up a notch. When that happens, you need Toasted Cheddar, Ham and Arugula Sandwich.
Toasted Cheddar, Ham and Arugula Sandwich
We all know the comfort of sinking our teeth into a toasted cheese sandwich, right? I mean, bread…and cheese…toasted…together? There’s almost nothing quite like it. And I could practically live on those things. But, let’s elevate that experience by adding some distinct flavors to the mix, like savory and a little spice. This is where ham, arugula, and red onion step into the picture. They just know how to dance together with the white cheddar cheese.
You know what else they bring to the party? Nutrients…like protein, iron, fiber, and potassium, to name a few. I can’t promise this sandwich will deliver all the necessary, daily recommendations, but it’s nice to know we’re adding great things to an already great thing! And notice, we’re doing an easy-on-the-cheese thing on this sandwich. It’s nice to lighten up sometimes.
