    Pimento Cheese + Ham Biscuit Sandwiches

     Rich, creamy and irresistible pimento cheese is piled on top of a flaky buttery biscuit with a few slices of salty-sweet country fried ham, bright and flavorful pickled red onions, and earthy and vibrant bright green scallions. It's comfort food at its finest and it's bite sized so you don't have to feel guilty!

    These little tea-time sandwiches are the perfect appetizer for baby showers, luncheons, or when you just really need to sit on the couch and binge eat until you're satiated. And although this recipe only makes one sandwich, I prefer to serve these by the dozen with a few pitchers of mimosas or bloody marys. 

    If you're vegetarian, leave out the pan-fried country ham and try adding a thick slice of salted tomato or some herbed buttermilk dressed greens.

    Flaky biscuits, smokey fried ham, buttery muenster cheese and sweet honey butter makes these miniature Southern sandwiches perfect for picnics, parties, and/or feeding a hungry group of people. Each bite is packed with Southern goodness and the heart shape adds an extra layer of fun. I recommend serving them with mimosas and a few of your favorite hot sauces. 

    They're best made fresh, but you can make them a day in advance as long as they're kept cool in the refrigerator.

    Fennugreek Gouda, Maple Glazed Ham, and Scrambled Egg Grilled Cheese

    Grilled Cheese Social

    This Southern breakfast grilled cheese is packed with sweet and salty flavors. Fenugreek gouda, which is studded with fenugreek seeds (typically used to mimic maple flavoring in generic store-bought syrups), melts like a charm and works perfectly for this breakfast sandwich. The soft scrambled eggs create an airy texture while the maple glazed ham and sourdough balance out the sweetness of this sandwich. It's one breakfast grilled cheese that will have you coming back for more.

    These little slider grilled cheese sandwiches are packed with flavor and they make the perfect bite-size appetizers and party snack. Filled with a dollop of woodsy mulberry jam, some salty slices of Virginia ham, a couple of bright pickled peach segments, and nutty shreds of gouda and then grilled between two buttery sweet slices of Hawaiian bread, this sandwich packs quite the flavorful punch.

    And the best part is that this sandwich is good all year round - whether you're making it in the middle of summer when peaches are perfectly in season or whether you're making it in the dead of winter, after your peaches have been pickling for a few months.

    Monte Cristo + Brie Sliders

    These sweet and savory little monte cristo sliders feature creamy brie, thinly sliced turkey and ham, tangy raspberry jam and crusty French bread. And instead of deep frying the entire sandwich, like some monte cristos are made, this sandwich is grilled on the stove with salted butter. These little sliders may not be the healthiest of options, but they're super tasty and little so you don't have to feel bad about eating them.

    Chicken Cordon Bleu is typically made by stuffing the ham and cheese inside the breast, but for the sake of this sandwich - don't worry about it! Stacking the ham and cheese on top the buns, popping it in the broiler, then adding fried chicken works perfectly and cuts your prep time (and potential mess-ups) in half!
