ham and jarlsberg sandwich recipeDo you have some leftover Easter ham?  You do?  Then you are going to want to make this sandwich.  Right now.  This sandwich is warm, gooey, and pretty much the yummiest ham sandwich I have ever eaten in my life.  Ham, Jarlsberg Cheese, onion and poppy seed spread, on a toasty and warm roll.  The flavor combination is so interesting.  And delicious.  It makes me really happy.  I have recently discovered Jarlsberg Cheese, (they are sending me to Camp Blogaway at the end of the week) and I really have fallen in love with this nutty and sweet cheese.  It melts like a dream and goes so well with so many things.

I hope that you all had a Happy Easter.  We had the best Easter that I can remember.  We went to church the night before, and we all slept in on Easter Sunday.  I made a huge Easter brunch with Cream Cheese Biscuits, strawberry jam, pancakes, sausage, fruit, and it was delicious.  We never even got out of our jammies all day.  It was wonderful.  I hope that your Easter was as nice as ours was.
