Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches Recipe

Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches Recipe

I COLLECT cookbooks and enjoy reading them much like a novel. But when I start cooking, I create my own recipes to suit my taste. I used to cater parties and found I often had to be resourceful. This sandwich is one of my creations, so easy to cook for two and even one! -Norma Curtis, Ithaca, Michigan
