Grilled Ham, Cheese, Pickle, and Potato Chip Sandwich



Who am I to tell you how to make a dang sandwich?

I don’t know how much mayonnaise you like to spread on your bread.  I don’t know how spicy you like your mustard.  I don’t know how cheesy you like your situation.  I can’t know how tall you like to stack your ham.

I don’t want to get into your sandwich making business.  It’s a personal thing.  I know.

But!  May I just offer you two humble suggestions?

Pickles and Potato Chips.  Inside.

You knew this was bound to happen.

Typical animal.  Always after the good stuff with his smelling nose.


Grilled ham and cheese is easy .  I don’t have to convince you that it’s a simple and delicious sandwich.  Adding pickles and potato chips is a salty, crunchy stroke of genius.  Enjoy warm, just after grilling, with a hearty handful of potato chips.

Grilled Ham Cheese Pickle and Potato Chip Sandwich

You’ll need:

2 slices of sandwich bread

Dijon mustard

cheddar cheese sliced thin

about 5 thinly sliced pieces of ham

sliced dill pickles

a handful of salted potato chips

1 tablespoon of butter for grilling

What you’ll do:

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.

Spread mustard over both sides of bread.  Top with cheese, ham, pickles, potato chips, and more cheese.

Smash sandwich breads together.  Grill in melted butter on both sides until golden brown and the cheese is melted.

Slice in half.  Serve immediately before the chips get soggy.

  1. I used to just put French’s mustard on brown bread and fold it over and eat it. I can also eat just cheese and pickles with mustard on them. Combining them all is even better. In England they have cheese and pickle as a thing, but their pickle is not like our pickles, it is like a brown chutney. The first time I ordered a cheese and pickle sandwich I was like: what.

  2. Can I just say that this is exactly what I miss living here in Italy! My Italian fiance is not so keen to make things like this, and in fact, I always have to substitute the cheese and bread because cheddar is a bit too orange for Italians and bread, well, don’t get me started—- buuuuuttt, we do have potato chips here as well as great ham and mustard, so, mission accomplished. This will have to be my lunch.

  3. Lol awesome Joy! Over here in Northern England a “crisp butty” is typical if somewhat cringeworthy fare! I wonder how many Americans secretly do it too? It sure is delicious. And as for pickles – how could you not have them?!?

  4. Wow this looks amazing! I am now eyeing the contents of my fridge to see if I could make this and have it for lunch today. Yum.

    I used to have crisp (chip) and ketchup sandwiches when I was younger- this is a slightly upgraded version!

  5. We could be brothas from anotha motha. My sandwiches are always loaded with pickles–pref spicy bread and butter–and a tuna sand isn’t a sandwich without crunchy chips.
