Everyone loves a good sandwich. Everyone. There is something comforting about a good ol’ PB&J in your lunchbox, a grilled cheese on a Saturday morning with snow flurries (Sorry! I know Summer isn’t quite over yet.), pulled pork on a bun with a nice cider (a personal fav!).

We’ll step it up just a notch with a simple, but delicious Country Ham Melt --

Cured, local country ham balanced with a brown sugar glaze, topped with peppered avocado, cheese and a homemade roasted tomato, poblano pepper and garlic mayo. All between two buttered, golden toasted layers of sweet Italian bread.
