Ham, Colby, and Avocado Sandwich

December's Kitchen Play contest is sponsored by the National Pork Board, and although we're already in January, there's just a little time left to squeak into the contest. The very first recipe on the menu was a ham sandwich, and it seemed like it was my destiny to make that sandwich.

I had ham left over from this recipe, and I had a loaf of brioche on hand. Cheese is always on hand. Then I added some sliced avocado, and let the sandwich meet my sandwich press. Bingo! Lunch.

I normally put either mustard or mayo on a ham sandwich, but the avocado was enough. And there was a bit of mustard on the crust of the ham, as well. Darned good lunch!

Ham, Colby, and Avocado Sandwich

2 slices brioche
Several slices ham
Thinly sliced avocado
Thinly sliced Colby cheese

It's a sandwich, so it's simple. Pile on as much ham as you like, top with the avocado, then the cheese,

Top with the next slice of bread, and toast in a panini press or in a skillet.

Slice, serve, and eat.
