  • 1 slice sourdough or 4 inches of a baguette sliced in half
  • 60 grams quality cooked French ham
  • 1 slice gouda, gruyere or Emmental cheese
  • 1 cup washed and chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 avocado sliced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 lemon, juice only


  1. Turn on your broiler and place the rack on the second highest level.
  2. Pill the ham & cheese on top of your bread. NOTE: You can also add some lovely steamed or cooked kale or spinach leaves for extra green goodness under the cheese.
  3. Place the sandwich under the broiler for one to two minutes until the cheese starts to brown.
  4. Meanwhile, place the romaine and avocado on your plate. Drizzle oil and lemon juice on top. Serve with your hot sandwich.
