Simply Six

This is the start to a category of posts that will feature recipes with six ingredients. In general, the ingredients are ones that I keep on hand at all times, or ingredients that I'll use in several recipes that week. To make things easier, water, salt and pepper won't count toward the six ingredient limit. Otherwise,  we'd end up with this every week:


Not a bad combo, but awfully plain! Besides, it's my game so I get to make the rules. First up, a favorite lunch of mine ...

Havarti Ham-wiches
4 slices shaved deli ham
1 English muffin, split
2 slices Havarti cheese
1 tablespoon mayonnaise (I always use olive oil mayo)
1 teaspoon honey mustard
1 teaspoon fresh thyme (use any herb you like, and use dried if it's all you have)
black pepper, to taste

Mix the mayo, mustard, thyme, and pepper in a small bowl. Spread on each muffin half. Layer on ham and cheese. Pop under the broiler for 5 minutes or so until the cheese is nice and bubbly. You're all set!
