 Chickie Cheese Sandwiches
Folks are sure to crack a smile when they see these irresistible open-faced sandwiches. Two kinds of cheese and a few olive pieces create the cheery chick that sits atop each ham slice.
8 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 30 min.


  • 8 slices bread
  • 4 to 8 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 8 slices fully cooked ham
  • 8 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 pitted ripe olives


  • Place bread on an ungreased baking sheet. Spread each slice with
  • mustard; top with ham. Using a 3-1/2-in. egg-shaped cutter, cut
  • mozzarella cheese into egg shapes (discard trimmings or save for
  • another use). Using a sharp knife, cut zigzags in the middle of each
  • egg shape. Place on ham, leaving 1 in. of space between the two
  • pieces.
  • For each chick, sprinkle cheddar cheese between the two egg pieces.
  • Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is
  • melted. Cut olives into eight triangles for beaks and 16 small
  • pieces for eyes. Arrange on chicks. Yield: 8 servings.
