Ingredients

  • 4

    tablespoons butter, at room temperature

  • 2

    tablespoons flour

  • 1

    cup whole milk

  • Salt and pepper

  • 8

    slices firm white bread

  • 1/2

    pound sliced deli ham

  • 6

    ounces thinly sliced swiss, plus 2 oz. shredded (1/2 cup)

  • 2

    plum tomatoes, sliced 3/4 inch thick

  • 2

    teaspoons sherry vinegar

  • 1

    tablespoon EVOO

Directions

1.In a small saucepan, melt 2 tbsp. butter over high heat. Whisk in the flour and cook over medium heat, whisking occasionally, for 2 minutes. Whisk in the milk, bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 2.Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat the broiler. Arrange 4 slices of bread on a baking sheet. Top each with one-quarter of the milk and sliced cheese. Spread one-quarter of the milk sauce over each sandwich; top with the remaining bread slices. Carefully spread the outsides of the sandwiches with the remaining 2 tbsp. butter. Broil, turning once, until the bread is lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. 3.remove the baking sheet from the oven. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top and broil the sandwiches again until the cheese is melted and lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Meanwhile, drizzle the tomatoes with the sherry vinegar and EVOO; season with salt. Remove the sandwiches, slice in half and serve immediately with the tomatoes.
