Crisp, cheesy skillet sandwiches ready in 20 minutes! Wrap the bread with ham or turkey, apple, arugula layered with cheese slices. Perfect if you love Italian cuisine.


  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 8 slices Italian bread, 1/2 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 lb thinly sliced cooked ham (from deli)
  • 1 medium apple, peeled, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 4 thin slices onion, if desired
  • 4 slices (1 oz each) Swiss cheese


In small bowl, mix mayonnaise and garlic. Spread 1 side of each bread slice with butter; spread mayonnaise mixture on unbuttered side. On each of 4 bread slices, buttered sides down, layer ham, apple, arugula, onion, cheese and remaining bread slices, buttered sides up.

Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat 3 to 5 minutes. Place sandwiches in hot skillet; cook uncovered 6 to 9 minutes, turning once, until bread is crisp and cheese is melted.
