The return of the 2009 Christmas ham is always joyful and filled with good memories. This time we unfroze a few slices for a sandwich, melt style (Meaning, lots of cheese on top). To meat-it-up, we also added some buffalo chicken from the local grocery store. Do you ever go through life, looking at the same thing over and over again, not really thinking about what it is, but still forming an opinion that sometimes turns into solid knowledge? This is the way I feel about Butterball buffalo chicken breast. I have seen it many times at the local grocery store, and never really given it a second glance. I knew, somehow, that this gigantic ball of chicken must be a chicken breast, after all that’s what it said on the package. Last week, I then decide to try it. As soon as I see the meat cut, I realize to my horror that obviously this is not a gigantic 10 pound chicken breast, but rather another conglomerate of pressed meats of unknown origin. I could have kicked myself, but the nice lady had sliced it already, so here it is.
Ham Sandwich Recipe
- 1/2 large Ciabatta roll (This one we bought at Costco).
- 1 tsp butter
- 4 slices of ham,
- 3 slices of Butterball buffalo chicken breast
- 3 slices of your favorite melt cheese, such as mozzarella. (We used a strong Danish cheese that we like a lot)
- 3 tsp Valdeon cheese
- 4 tsp Caesar dressing (we used a special one with paprika mixed in, which is why it is red on the photos)
- 3 grape tomatoes
Spread the butter on the roll, and place the ham, chicken and cheeses on top. Toast in a toaster oven until the cheeses have melted. Cut the grape tomatoes in tiny slices, and spread on top of the sandwich, then drizzle the dressing on and enjoy while warm.
