    Pressed Ham Sandwich with Pimiento Cheese

    Spread Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2004

    Prep Time: 7 minutes
    Inactive Prep Time: 3 hours
    Yield: 4 servings
    User Rating: 5 Stars

    2 cups grated Cheddar
    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    1/4 cup finely chopped pimientos\
    1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    4 individual sandwich-sized baguettes, or 4 (6-inch) lengths of French bread, sliced in half lengthwise
    1/2 pound sliced smoked ham, such as Black Forest
    2/3 cup thinly sliced red onion

    Combine the cheese, mayonnaise, pimento, relish, pepper and salt in a medium bowl and stir until combined. Spread the cheese mixture on the cut sides of both the top and bottom bread halves of each sandwich. Divide the ham and onions evenly between the 4 sandwiches, sandwiching between cheese-slathered bread. Wrap sandwiches individually in foil and place on a plate or baking sheet. Apply weight from the top using a skillet or other heavy object and refrigerate (in this pressed fashion) for at least a few hours, preferably overnight.
