Yield: 1 Servings
Ingredients: 3 slices white sandwich bread 1/4 pound ham (or turkey) 1/2 cup grated gouda cheese 2 teaspoons mayonnaise (opt.) 1 large egg etc.
First. Lay out three slices of sandwich bread. Split grated cheese between two slices of bread. (You can sub smoked gouda if you want). Top cheese with sliced ham.
And now, Lightly spread mayo on BOTH sides of the third piece of bread. Place the mayo piece of bread on top of one of the two sides. Then flip the other ham/cheese side on top so the mayo piece of bread is in between the two sides, creating a two layer sandwich. The cheese should be on the outsides of the sandwich.
Next step is, Slices the ends off the sandwich and press it with some weight to really compact the layers. You can just cover it with a flat plate or cutting board and press on it gently for a few seconds.
