First Day Of School with Grilled Cheese, Ham and Apple Sandwiches

Today is an exciting  new day! I’m not sure who’s more excited us or the kids. Both our kids start school today-our son, is now a fourth grader and our seven year old daughter is now a second grader.

First Day Of School

Our two older kids have started a whole new world of adulthood and another year of teen age years in high school. Our oldest son, just turned 18 yesterday. He has become a very talented young man. He will be attending junior college while working part time and practicing with his band. Awesome talented group of young musicians. Their name…The Dehlingers.

You can find them on Facebook, My Space and YouTube. They have another concert this weekend at Unity Music in Santa Rosa, CA. Concert tickets are $8.00, so if you’re in the area go check them out. Our oldest daughter, a sophmore juinior( my heart wishes she was still younger) in high school, is transitioning into more rigorous classes, has become a very talented young girl exploring music and has the love for drawing.  How times flies!

Our two younger ones getting ready to leave for school:

Now that the kids will be away from the house and at school for the day, I want to be sure they have nutritious snacks and a healthy lunch. Their lunch today consisted of a turkey and cheese sandwich, apple slices with a peanut butter dip, a frozen yogurt tube, pretzels and a juice.

If you’re looking for lunch ideas, try a tasty twist to that grilled cheese sandwich. These Grilled Cheese, Ham and Apple sandwiches are something your kids are sure to love!

Grilled Cheese, Ham and Apple Sandwiches

Ingredients:

  • 8 slices of bread (we enjoy whole wheat)
  • 8 slices of Cheddar or American cheese
  • 8 slices of ham (deli-sliced works perfectly)
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced
  • Honey mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, melted

Instructions:

  1. Melt butter in the microwave. Preheat skillet over medium heat.
  2.  Using a basting brush, lightly brush outer slice of bread. On inner pieces of bread, spread honey mustard.  Place buttered side down in skillet and add cheese, ham and apple slices. 
  3. Top with another slice of bread and lightly brush butter on top.
  4. Grill until lightly brown and flip sandwich. Repeat with remaining slices of bread, cheese, ham and apple.

Definitely a classic sandwich. How could kids not give this sandwich 5 stars?
