    Serves: 4 

    • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
    • 8 slices bread
    • 4 slices cheese
    • 8 slices thinly sliced cooked ham
    • 1 small tin pineapple, drained and finely chopped

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Spread butter onto one side of each slice of bread. Place up to 4 of the slices of bread, butter side down in the pan. Top each piece with one slice of cheese, two slices of ham, and about 2 tablespoons of the chopped pineapple. Place remaining slices of bread on top with the butter side up. When the bottom of the sandwich is golden brown, flip sandwiches, and cook until browned on the other side, about 1 minute. Repeat steps with remaining ingredients if all four sandwiches do not fit in your pan.

    Loved these! Great variation on grilled cheese when we need a meal in a hurry. Two suggestions: toast the bread first and put the pineapple between the ham and the cheese. It really helps to keep the bread from getting soggy.  -  03 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very easy and yummy!!! When I was a teenager I worked for Steak Escape Sandwich Shop and we had a sandwich simular to this called the HAMBROSIA...this tastes very much like it!!!! Next time I'm going to sprinkle some pepper on the ham. This is very easy to make too. My 19 month old daughter LOVED it! Thanks so much tball!  -  02 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Had buns to use up so I grilled the insides of buns and layered cheese and ham on each side then pineapple in middle. Then wrapped in foil and into oven to warm/melt/toast.  -  25 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
