Hot Ham and Cheese Butter Dijon Skillet Sandwiches

Oooo baby wait until you sink your teeth into these hot cheesy skillet sandwiches! I love breaking out my rustic cast iron skillet for this simple recipe. They are buttery, cheesy and Dijon delicious. Whip out those skillets and enjoy some hot sammy’s!

Start with some nice soft rolls. 6 to be exact ๐Ÿ™‚


Butter the first half of the rolls.

Drizzle a little oil in your skillet.

Place your buttered bottom rolls butter side up in the skillet.

Top with some cheddar cheese!

A little piece of ham.

A little piece of turkey or more ham if you’d rather ๐Ÿ™‚

Butter the top rolls.

Place them ever so nicely over top.

Top with some Dijon Mustard.

If you like it a little spicy add even more than you see here. A nice Italian Dressing would also be delicious!

Time for the cheese!

Put as little or as much as your heart desires.

My heart desires….a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok, ready for the oven!

Bake for 20 minutes, until the cheese is melted and golden.

Now we’re talking!

Grab a couple sammy’s and enjoy!

    I love your skillet sandwiches. What a great idea with the dijon cheesy tops.

    OMG, these have good to be so deliciously healthy (he-he, see the devilish grin on my face). Well, we could use whole grain rolls, low-fat cheese and deli turkey and skip the butter. Oh heck, what am saying! Your way is the fun and tasty way!

    I love this recipe! Made it for Super Bowl for me and my sweetie. Used American Cheese and Honey Mustard instead of the Cheddar and Dijon as those aren’t our favs like the honey mustard is.

    Thanks for the great recipe!

    So I was the person that actually made this mess instead of just commenting, which is useless. Mustard on the outside doesn’t work at all. I shred my own cheese, pre-shredded is nasty stuff. All the flavor comes from fat; olive oil.butter, mozz and cheddar. When cheddar melts, it’s a clumpy oily mess. Did you actually eat this? Sloppy,lazy blogging.
