I was asked to make sandwiches for a road trip so we did not have to stop multiple times along the way. This is one of the sandwiches that I created. It is based on the traditional French Croque-monsieur with minor variations.
The base is perfectly Smoked honey-glazed ham from Dianora. It is moist, smoky and delicious. The bread was from Loafer & Co. and a millet-porridge seeded bread that was gluten-free and out of this world. Chewy, with a lovely aroma of toasted millet and seeds. The French whole-grain, not smooth mustard please, adds a lovely bite and spice to the sandwich, and the lettuce a crunch. The sandwich is perfect for travel, it does not get soggy and yucky but stays firm. This was a sandwich we wolfed down.
This is a case where simple is delicious, getting the right ratio of the meat to the French mustard is essential for the flavours to be perfect.

1 tablespoon whole-grain French mustard
3 slices h
3 slices Smoked honey-glazed ham
1-2 leaves lettuce
Cheddar slices (optional)
Whole grain bread, toasted if desired
Toast the bread if desired. On one slice apply a generous layer of the whole-grain mustard. You want enough to have a strong taste and enough spice. On the other slice smear some butter. Top the mustard with the ham, cheese and lettuce. Tp with the second slice and cut at a diagonal.
Serve immediately or wrap for a picnic.
