The hubby and I were home one afternoon and it was the day before I was to go grocery shopping. Naturally there was not much left to eat. Knowing I was about to be asked “What’s for lunch?” I went to the kitchen in search of something to make. Looking at the half baguette loaf sitting on the counter and knowing this would have to be used by today or else it would be thrown out, I wanted to come up with a quick sandwich.
Missing Christmas time when I baked my favorite honey mustard glazed ham inspired me. I love ham that is caramelized with honey, mustard and brown sugar. Using the broiler to help achieve some of that glazed ham flavor. Of course everything is better with cheddar. By adding green onion it gives this slightly sweet sandwich a nice balance and beautiful color.
All three of the big sandwiches were devoured without a breath between each bite. I knew this would be a favorite in my house. The hubby asked if there were more and sadly there were none, I was back to the same issue I had started with. Are men ever not hungry!? It’s funny, even when I have every meal planned out and have the fridge fully loaded with snacks and goodies I’m still always asked “what’s to eat?” I’m quite certain this is not going to change. Embracing the hungry husband and preparing with hidden bags of potato chips and protein bars is my way of conquering this hunger battle.
