Apricot Ham and Cheese Sandwich

Apricot Ham and Cheese Sandwich Recipe

With school back in session for most of my friends with kids, it’s that time of the year when parents are thinking about what to pack in their kids lunch box.

Since I’m all about putting a delicious twist on traditional recipes, I took a lunchbox favorite, the ham and cheese sandwich, and gave it a sweet twist with apricot preserves and King’s Hawaiian Sweet Bread!

I sandwiched the preserves in the middle of the sandwich so that the bread won’t get soggy before lunchtime.

I also tried the sandwich two-ways, both cold, for lunches on-the-go, and grilled for a delicious spin on a hot ham and swiss!

Adding the apricot preserves to the middle of this ham and cheese sandwich gives it a monte cristo feel, which I happen to love for brunch!

I made the hot version of this sandwich twice for breakfast last week after creating the recipe for the blog! The sweet buttery bread with the melted cheese, ham and apricot preserves was a winning breakfast combination!

I used rosemary ham in this recipe because I love the extra burst of flavor it gives this sandwich!
