You know, there are only so many times I can repeat the basic Christmas and New Year's meal before it's time to change things up. I've used some of the sweet potato casserole to make my sweet potato brown sugar bars. I've used ham and turkey in omelets, casseroles and and various other dishes. I've gotten pretty creative over the past month and a half.
I think I'd have to say one of my favorite things I made utilizing leftovers was a sandwich. A simple, basic, sandwich. Sometimes simple is the best. Wouldn't you agree?
Grilled Ham and Cheese on Brioche with Brussels Sprout Slaw
4 Pieces brioche bread, or your favorite bread
2 Pieces American cheese
1/4 Cup shredded pepper jack, divided
1/4-1/3 Pound ham, divided
2-3 Tbsp horseradish sauce
1/2 Cup Brussels sprout slaw, divided
Butter, for the bread
Place a skillet over medium-low heat. Butter one side of bread, place butter side down in skillet, then spread some of the horseradish sauce on the bread, followed by both cheese (1 slice America and 2 tablespoons pepper jack), ham, and 1/4 cup of slaw. Spread a little more horseradish on another piece of bread, if desired. Place horseradish side down, and spread butter on the other side. Cook until golden brown and cheese has melted, about 2 minutes, flip and cook another minute or minute and a half until bread has toasted. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
Yields 2 sandwiches.
