If you love Everything Bagels these grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich Bites with everything bagel seasoning are going to be your new lunch time favorite.
Putting my impulse buy to good use….
A few months ago I happened upon a container of Everything Bagel Seasoning at my local Costco. The second I saw it on the shelf I just knew I needed to grab it.
Then I took it home and tucked it away in the pantry never to see daylight again, lol.
At least that is until now!
I was working on getting some good sandwich recipes posted and wanted to do like a croque monsieur (a.k.a. faaancy french ham and cheese sandwich) and in the process came across a recipe for it with poppy seed bread and BAM, light bulb moment.. use that Everything Bagel Seasoning.
Just like that my ham and cheese melt went from basic to extraordinary!
Crazy how my mind works.
The only disappointment about this recipe is gonna be that YOU didn’t think of it and have been missing out all this time!
I actually shared the recipe idea and story with a friend of mine and she made it the same day. Her exact words were: “Why did I never think to do this!”
What can I say, a food mind is a terrible thing to waste and mine just works like that. In this case it all played together like a well orchestrated symphony.
Was that bit a much? Oh, heck no. You will totally agree once you give this a try.
I’m embarrassed to say, the only secret to these is how easy and good they are!
I just use good old fashioned country white bread, thin layers of honey maple ham, swiss cheese and then coat the outer layers with melted butter and you guessed it, Everything Bagel seasoning!
Then, place the sandwich on the griddle and cooked on low, both sides until the cheese melts. You want to cook each side slow and low so you don’t burn the seasoning on the outside of the bread.
When it’s done, cut off the edges but of course you could leave them on.
Pack this sandwich for work, school or even make it for entertaining! You’re gonna be the lunch box envy of all your friends.
Now that you have the secret to the BEST EVER Ham and Cheese Sandwich recipe the only thing left to decide is if you are going to share!
