jalna's sandwich

After reading Jalna's comment..."Cranberry chutney!!! Diamond Head Market and Grill here makes a ham and cheese sandwich. It's just a plain ole ham and cheese sandwich, but what makes it almost magical is the little bit of cranberry chutney that they put inside."

I went out to buy some ham, cheese and bread for lunch.

Instead of getting a processed ham, I bought yakibuta (roast pork), which looks like the ham you bake during the Holidays, only in smaller pieces, and sliced it thin.

I also bought my favorite walnut raisin bread and did end up buying processed cheese slices.

I cut a slice of bread in half and topped one side with two slices of pork and the other side with a slice of cheese then toasted both to heat up the pork and melt the cheese.

After toasting, I added a dollop of cranberry chutney and some leaves of butter lettuce....lunch was served.

The chutney gets heated up too with the heat from the cheese and pork, dripping a bit here and there...It was delicious. Thanks for the idea, Jalna!

Mmm...looks great! If the cranberry chutney lasts until Thanksgiving it would be good on a turkey sandwich too--maybe with a layer of cream cheese or yogurt cheese too. OK, now I am officially hungry. ;-)

I haven't seen turkey here Debinhawaii, so I usually eat my turkey when I am home :) I think I'm gonna try this with roast chicken next!

Take care.

Cranberry chutney...wow, that just reminded me of a recipe that I used to make at a deli that I worked at. Hmmm...if I remember correctly, it was dried cranberries gently stewed in apricot juice, that's it! I forgot what type of liquor went in to give it that extra touch, but it was something like only a splash. Killer in a turkey sandwich!
