Hefty Grilled Ham ’n’ Jack Cheese sandwiches from Jayne Ward in Eldon, Missouri, are “fast, filling and nice enough to serve company,” she says.

Prep: 5 min.
Cook: 10 min.
Total: 15 min.

You Will Need
4 tablespoons butter, softened
8 slices Texas toast
4 slices sharp cheddar cheese
16 thin slices deli ham
4 slices red onion, optional
4 tablespoons ranch salad dressing
4 slices pepper Jack cheese

What to Do
1. Butter one side of each slice of Texas toast. On the unbuttered sides of four slices, layer cheddar cheese, half of the ham, onion if desired and remaining ham; spread with ranch dressing. Top with pepper Jack cheese and remaining toast, buttered side up.

2. On a hot griddle, cook sandwiches for 3-4 minutes or until bottoms of sandwiches are browned. Carefully turn; cook 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
