I decided to expand my cheese horizons today. The rain is pounding down and my taste buds crave comfort food. What is more comfortable than a grilled ham and cheese sandwich? I have a habit of using medium Cheddar but today I thought I would put Dutch Gouda to the test. I grilled some Westphalia ham. The package said it was ninety nine percent fat free so I fried it in butter to compensate. With a small nod toward the healthy, I used whole wheat bread to complete the sandwich. The cheese melted to a nutty, soft mass of goodness. The ham provides a salty, caramelized component. My homemade bread and butter pickles add a touch of acid and sweetness. Looks like I'll be adding this sandwich to the menu.
