  • Grainy Dijon mustard or honey mustard
  • Swiss Cheese
  • Ham
  • Chicken rotisserie is fine


  • Heat your panini press or skillet.
  • Assemble sandwiches bu adding a generous amount of mustard to both the top and bottom slices of bread, then add on the cheese (no skimping)), ham and chicken.
  • Press down firmly on the sandwich, then place in you panini press or on your pan. The panini press will take about 2-3 minutes.
  • If using the pan method, top sandwich with a heavy pan or pot and press down firmly for a couple of minutes (use a pot holder). Flip the sandwich carefully and repeat with the other side until cheese melts.
  • Slice in half and serve.


Choose to use a grainy Dijon mustard (like a Gray Poupon Country Dijon) or a honey mustard, based on your preference.
You can cook breaded chicken cutlets for this sandwich, however the crunch of the roll is good enough for me and I choose to go with rotisserie chicken for this sandwich, especially during the busy weekends at my house. Plus in my house...we want the ham as the star of the sandwich!
