Parmesan Pesto Grilled Tomato Ham & Cheese from Lemony Thyme

Parmesan Pesto Grilled Tomato, Ham & Cheese Sandwich.  Thank you Deli Man.

He asked me if I’d like some samples.  How did he know?  I told him I needed some ham, but not just any ham, something different.  He said (in a foreign accent, the tall, dark..kind) and I quote “have you tried the Boar’s Head Rosemary Ham.” Why no, I haven’t.  And my friends…The Rosemary Ham & Gruyere Cheese Sandwich {with Sundried Tomatoes} was born.  Stay with me, we’re getting to the Parmesan Pesto Grilled Tomato, Ham & Cheese Sandwich.  Soon.

Rosemary Ham & Gruyere Cheese Sandwich {with Sundried Tomatoes}

Look at the picture above, when something looks and tastes this amazing we have to share it.  After visiting Boar’s Head’s website I still wasn’t exactly sure what kind of ham I had just fallen in love with.  So I called MY deli man…”remember me, I asked for something different and you sold me Rosemary Ham…I need specifics.”  He told me I had purchased Boar’s Head Rosemary Sundried Tomato Ham.  Perfect.  “And while I have you, what will you recommend next?”  Without hesitation “Parmesan Pesto Ham.”  And the Parmesan Pesto Grilled Tomato, Ham & Cheese Sandwich was born.  Thank you Deli Man.
