Ham and Muenster Cheese Panini with Thyme

I watched Crazy Stupid Love for about the eighteenth time last night and my mouth went dry during this scene.


How can a man look so incredibly sexy eating a slice of pizza?  I don't know if it's the pizza or that suit, but I can say with absolute certainty that I would jump that man.  Correction:  I would eat that slice of pizza and then jump that man.

On a completely unrelated note, I made a sandwich.  This isn't just any sandwich, though.  Oh no, this is a sandwich so devastatingly delicious that I have made it no less than five times since these pictures were taken last week.  It's just the perfect combination of the sweet ham, salty cheese and tangy dijon mustard.  Add in the thyme and all of its grilled perfection, and I'm a goner.  This one's a keeper.  Much like Ryan Gosling in that suit.

See what I did there, yeah?  Brought it all full circle ;)    

Ham and Muenster Cheese Panini with Thyme


Ingredients:


1 loaf ciabatta bread
1 package Virginia honey ham
Muenster cheese, 4 oz (sliced)
1 tbsp dijon mustard
2 tsp dried thyme 
1 tsp butter


Directions:


Slice the ciabatta into four equal pieces.  Halve each of the four pieces and smear mustard on both halves.  Sprinkle on the thyme and then layer the ham and cheese.  Heat a griddle pan on medium heat and melt the butter.  Cook 4-5 minutes per side, until the cheese is melted.

    1. I don't think that's possible! Did you hear about the story where he broke up a fight in NY?? He literally stepped between two people about to get into a physical altercation. This man is a dream come true.
