Not quite your mother's grilled cheese, but home-style enough even with the sweet pepper tweak.

For an uptown grilled cheese, try proscuitto in place of the ham, and goat cheese over the Monterey Jack or Cheddar.


4 slices whole-grain bread
4 teaspoons softened butter, divided
4 slices lean ham
1 roasted red pepper (from a jar), patted dry and thinly slice
3 ounces Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese, sliced


  1. Spread butter on bread. Divide ham, peppers and cheese between 2 slices bread.
  2. Place on a heated grill, and cook until bread is toasted and cheese is melted.
