Grilled Cheese Recipe with Ham, Basil Pesto, and Honey Mustard!

Here is another Easy Frugal Recipe that I have recently made.  I experimented with mixing basil pesto and honey mustard to make a honey mustard pesto sauce and it turned out yummy!

Ingredients:

Whole wheat bread

French’s Honey Mustard Dipping Sauceherb basil Gourmet Garden Herb Blend Basil, $4.99 (found in produce section of Wegmans) You could just use fresh basil leaves (which would be cheaper, espeically in season.)  But in the dead of winter, I love using these herb blend pastes!  Or use pesto!

Thin Shaved Honey Smoked Ham

Colby Cheese

Tomato

PREPARATION:

Spread honey mustard on each slice of bread.  Top with the Gourmet Garden herb basil and mix together for a smooth pesto sauce.  Top with ham, cheese, and tomato.  Butter the outside of the bread and grill until golden brown! I served this with a side of Ore Idea Hash Browns (because of the recent Ibotta rebate) mixed with Recipe Ready peppers and onions (because they were free.) You can serve this sandwich with a potato, vegetable or rice of your choice.

  1. I LOVE the basil and cilantro in the tube! They are a really good substitute for fresh! 🙂
