Grilled Country Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

If you think you have seen this before your are right!  It's on the Hellmann's website.  It is so easy, so good, and so perfect for this hot weather.  It is not your average grilled ham and cheese sandwich.  It could be the <a href="http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2010/06/no-knead-rosemary-bread.html">No Knead Rosemary Bread </a>that I made, but you can use a country-style bread about an 8-inch round loaf will work. Don't omit the apple or the thyme or you're back to a regular old grill ham and cheese.
