Easy Frugal Recipe: Ham & Cheese Melt with Basil Honey Mustard Dressing!

This pesto ham sandwich is so easy to make.  It’s a gourmet Ham & Cheese melt with mustard pesto sauce.  Add ham and pesto to any grilled cheese, and you have for yourself a ham, cheese, pesto, toastie!


  • Whole Wheat Bread
  • French’s Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
  • Gourmet Garden Herb Blend Basil, pesto, or fresh basil leaves
  • Thin Shaved Honey Smoked Ham
  • Colby Cheese
  • Tomato


  1. Spread honey mustard on each slice of bread.
  2. Top with the Gourmet Garden herb basil and mix together for a smooth mustard pesto sauce.
  3. Top with ham, cheese, and tomato.
  4. Butter the outside of the bread and grill until golden brown!
  5. 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.
