About this Recipe

Is there a more iconic diner sandwich than a grilled ham and cheese? It’s a classic for a reason! Crispy sourdough bread, gooey melted cheddar and smoky ham are a winning flavor combination that NEVER gets old. If you’re not a fan of cheddar, feel free to use any cheese you like. A thin layer of mayonnaise on the outside helps the sandwich crisp to perfection. Don’t skip the softened butter on the inside—it’s a key component of the flavor! This sandwich is best made with large slices of high-quality sourdough bread, but you’ll only be able to fit 2 sandwiches on the tray. We recommend using square sliced sourdough sandwich bread if you want to make 3 or 4 sandwiches.


Assemble sandwiches

  • Evenly spread softened butter in Zone 2 of Brava metal tray.
  • Spread a thin, even layer of mayonnaise on one side of each slice of bread. Place one bread slice, mayonnaise side down, on Zone 2 of metal tray.
  • Spread butter on the other sides of bread slices.
  • Place 1 slice of cheese on bread.
  • Top cheese with ham.
  • Top ham with remaining cheese slice.
  • Close sandwich with remaining bread slice, ensuring mayonnaise side is facing out.
