Cook/Sip: Grilled Ham and Cheese with Strawberry-Red-Wine Jam

We’re Cooking and Sipping this week with a Grilled Ham and Cheese with Strawberry-Red-Wine Jam! Be sure to choose a Pinot that you really like because you will want to have a splash with your decadent dinner! I recommend 2011 A by Acacia Pinot Noir which retails for about $12 a bottle. I believe we purchased ours at a local Costco for a few bucks less. It’s a solid wine with enough body to pair nicely with the complex Gruyere cheese!

Grilled Ham and Cheese with Strawberry-Red-Wine Jam from Food &Wine

Twenty 1/4-inch-thick slices of brioche

1/2 cup strawberry jam mixed with 2 tablespoons of Pinot Noir

10 thin slices of baked ham

10 thin slices of Gruyère cheese

Softened unsalted butter

 Heat a large griddle. Spread 10 of the brioche slices with the jam. Top with the ham and Gruyère and close the sandwiches. Lightly butter the outside of the sandwiches and cook over moderate heat until toasted and the cheese is melted, 2 minutes per side. Cut in half and serve right away.
