Ham and Double Cheese Sandwiches Recipe

This original recipe won me first prize in a local sandwich contest. Sometimes I'll use hazelnut bread instead of whole wheat to add to the nutty flavor.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green chilies
  • 1 tablespoon onion soup mix
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts, toasted, optional
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • 16 slices fully cooked ham
  • 4 lettuce leaves


  • 1. In a bowl, beat cream cheese, chilies and soup mix until smooth. Add cheese and nuts if desired; mix well. Evenly spread on four slices of bread; layer each with four slices of ham and one lettuce leaf. Top with remaining bread. Yield: 4 servings.
