Grilled cheese is a pretty universal comfort food. It might seem incredibly American, but when faced with hunger pangs, and little left in your fridgde, it’s easy to bring bread and cheese together and turn it into something delicious.

We’re used to having all the ooey-gooeyness between the two slices, but we’ve also dreamed of having crispy, burnt edges on the regular sandwich.

In order to create the grilled cheese of our dreams, we’ve put the cheese outside the toast, creating a golden exterior. In order to retain the creaminess, we’ve used Lady’s Choice Ham Spread, made with their thick and smooth mayonnaise.

What’s great about Lady’s Choice Ham Spread is it doesn’t just add texture; it also adds much needed meatiness to the fatty sandwich. There’s no need to add extra ham or any other filling–the spread itself is chock-full of tender bits of pork, ensuring that every bite is just as meaty as the next one. This recipe may only require a few ingredients, but because of the quality of what’s in between both slices of bread, it feels way more luxurious than your average grilled cheese.
