Ham Loaf

My mom made this recipe when we were teenagers and had a lot of kids over. It’s a great warm lunch and really easy and cheap to make. I try to find bread from the bakery discount section as you are cooking it anyway so it won’t matter if it’s ready to be eaten that day. I purchase the plain ham in the packages not fresh from the deli. I find it has more water in it, therefore it makes this a juicy sandwich and doesn’t dry the ham out in the oven. You can use any type of cheese you like. The original recipe calls for swiss, but today I used cheddar that I shredded myself.Mix in small bowl butter onion, mustard, and seasoned salt, set aside. Cut bread horizontally about 1/2-3/4 inch thick. Place foil under loaf enough foil to wrap. Stuff between every two slices a piece of ham and cheese. Pour butter mixture over loaf, wrap and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20-30 minutes.

Ingredients:

1 lg loaf French or Italian bread
1 1/2 stick butter melted
1 tbsp minced dry onion
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 lb sliced cooked ha
1/2 lb swiss cheese

Mix in small bowl butter onion, mustard, and seasoned salt, set aside. Cut bread horizontally about 1/2-3/4 inch thick. Place foil under loaf enough foil to wrap.
