Ham Asparagus Cheese Sauce Sandwich

I know these sound bizarre, but Ham Asparagus Cheese Sauce Sandwiches are seriously really delicious. 

I grew up eating these and thought they were a normal recipe (but apparently they were created by my Grandma Hazel)... This belief was quickly put to rest the first time a friend was over while we had them for dinner (and they had never seen anything like them). 

They may look and sound a little crazy, but everyone who has ever tried these has LOVED them. 

Ham Asparagus Cheese Sauce Sandwiches are really quick and easy to make, as well as a great comfort food. But aren't all things covered in cheese sauce comforting? 

(Also, I am noticing a trend with my dinner posts, and I swear that not everything we eat is covered in cheese sauce).

Ham Asparagus Cheese Sauce Sandwich Recipe:

Honey Ham (or favorite ham)
Bread (I used potato bread)

Cheese Sauce:
2 T. butter
2 T. flour
2 cups milk
2 cups cheese (or to taste)
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 t. garlic powder
Salt to taste (taste sauce first, as cheese is salty in nature)
Dash of cayenne pepper
Dash of nutmeg


Start cheese sauce (See Baked Creamy Mac & Cheese for cheese sauce directions). Meanwhile, cut thick slices of ham and sear on both sides in a hot pan - one slice per sandwich. Steam asparagus in shallow water until softened but not mushy. Amount of asparagus varies by preference - I tend to really pile it up! Toast one slice of toast per sandwich. 

Assembly order - toast, slice of ham, asparagus, then top with cheese sauce. Sprinkle paprika on top. 

* These are really filling - I usually eat one with a side salad.
