Fantastic grilled cheese sandwich made with ham, brie cheese, sauteed onions, and maple mustard glaze. This sandwich will make a delicious post-holiday dinner lunch, using up leftover holiday baked ham.
I’m drooling again just looking at the pictures of this grilled cheese. This was an amazing sandwich and I want to bake more ham just so I can make more of these ham and brie sandwiches. But of course, you don’t HAVE TO have leftover baked holiday ham to make this scrumptious grilled cheese, any ham can be used. A holiday ham can just extra depth of flavor because it’s first baked with a glaze.
I still haven’t decided if I will be making ham or another protein for our Christmas dinner. Ham is always an easy choice. It takes five minutes to prep ham and glaze and then just pop it in the oven. Considering all the sides and desserts that also need to be made for the holiday dinner, making an easy protein is a great option.
I think I just talked myself into making ham for Christmas. Ham leftovers are also the best. Besides ham and cheese grilled cheese sandwiches, it’s great to use in dips, soups, lasagna, and even a savory bread pudding.
This Ham and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich is my favorite ham leftover recipe to date. Gooey, melted brie is great with ham and so much flavor is added with the addition of sweetens mustard spread over the bread slices.
It’s worth baking the ham just for these grilled cheeses!
