Grilled Roasted Red Pepper and Ham Sandwich

Recipe by  

"I came up with this sandwich on my own. My husband wanted a plain grilled ham and cheese sandwich and I decided to experiment with some ingredients from the fridge. He absolutely loved it! Try using a chipotle mayonnaise to spice it up a bit."

  1. Spread mayonnaise onto one side of each slice of bread. On one slice of bread, place one slice of provolone cheese, then ham, red peppers, and the other slice of cheese. Top with the other slice of bread with the mayonnaise facing the filling. Butter the outsides of the sandwich, and sprinkle a little bit of Parmesan cheese onto the butter.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat until warm. Fry the sandwich on both sides until golden brown and cheese is melted. If you have an indoor grill, this sandwich may be grilled that way also. Cut the sandwich in half, and serve.

OMG! Great twist on regular 'ol grilled ham and cheese! I love the italian spin on this classic. I used a smoked ham and a combination of Parmesan and Romano cheeses because who can really decide between the two! I added a little minced garlic to some Hellman's light mayo and my husband was in sandwich Heaven.... Great recipe!

Sorry but we thought it was kind of bland. Very easy to throw together but I doubt I would make again.

Loved this sandwich!!!! I did make minor changes...used french bread, my jarred roasted red peppers were in water and not oil. My condiment of choice was the Creamy Italian Dressing II. Also I grated italian seasoning on the outside of the bread with the parmesan cheese before grilling. I will be making this sandwich again soon!

Try mixing basil pesto with the mayo. It makes for a delicious combination with the the provolone and red peppers. Awesome sandwich!

Hubby and I loved them. I had honey turkey so I used that. The only issue I had was the parmesan cheese, it burnt instantly. Other than that, great recipe. Next time I will use a pannini bread.

I didn't have the red pepper, but I had everything else and it turned out AMAZING! Thank you so much for posting this. It was delicious.

No question - this is a great sandwich! I couldn't find sourdough bread so I used ciabatta. It came out super!!

DE-LISH! The red peppers take this sandwhich from boring to brilliant. I made mine on tomato basil bread and served it with soup.
