Hot Ham and Cheese with Raspberry Jam

Time: 10 minutes
Yield: as many as you would like :)
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!

French Bread
Butter
Raspberry Jam 
Deli Ham, thinly sliced
Swiss Cheese

1. Grab yourself some nice thick french bread or Texas toast. Spread a thin amount of butter onto each piece.
2. Turn the bread over and spread about 1-2 teaspoons of jam onto both sides. This will make your sandwich pretty sweet. If you just want it to be a tiny bit sweet, only spread jam on one side. 
3. Heat a skillet up over medium high heat. Toss a bit of deli ham into the pan and let it get warm slightly seared on both sides. Remove the ham from the pan and carefully wipe it clean with a paper towel. You don't want the outside of your sandwich to have seared ham on it. 
4. Place one piece of bread, butter side down into the skillet. Top it with Swiss cheese and the warm ham. 
5. Add another slice of cheese and the other piece of bread, buttered side up. 
6. Cover the pan with a lid. This will help the cheese to melt. Watch the underside of the bread carefully, you don't want it to burn! When the bottom is golden brown flip the sandwich over and grill it on the other side. 

Serve and enjoy!
