Ingredients

  • 4

    slices whole wheat bread

  • ¼

    cup pizza sauce, may use tomato sauce

  • 2 to 4

    slices of low-moisture, part-skim mozzarella cheese, enough to cover 2 pieces of bread

  • 2 to 4

    thick slices of fully cooked ham steak, depending on size of bread

  • 2 to 4

    slices of pineapple, depending on size of bread

  • ¼

    cup pickled jalapeno slices

  • Granulated garlic, to taste

  • 2 to 4

    slices of 50% reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese, enough to cover 2 pieces of bread

  • Extra virgin olive oil

Directions

Lay out the 4 slices of bread, and spread 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce onto each. On 2 slices, layer on the mozzarella, ham, pineapple, jalapeno, granulated garlic, and cheddar. Top with remaining 2 slices of bread. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Place sandwiches into the hot skillet, cover, and cook until golden brown on the bottom, about 4-5 minutes. Flip sandwiches, cover, and cook until golden brown on the other side and the cheese has fully melted, about 4-5 remaining minutes. If the bread turns golden brown before the cheese has fully melted, reduced stove heat to low and keep the sandwiches covered until the cheese is melted.
