Ingredients

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 16 slices firm white sandwich bread
  • 8 thin slices boiled ham (1/4 pound)
  • 8 thin slices Swiss cheese (1/4 pound)
  • Special equipment: a large square or rectangular electric waffle iron (not a Belgian waffle iron)

Directions

Preheat waffle iron on high until just beginning to smoke. Reduce heat to moderate and brush generously with some butter.

Spread butter on 1 side of 8 bread slices and turn slices over. Top 4 slices with 1 slice ham and 1 slice cheese, folding in any overhang, then top with remaining 4 buttered bread slices, buttered sides up. Cook sandwiches in batches (number of batches will depend on size of your waffle maker) until bread is golden and crisp, 4 to 6 minutes.

Assemble and cook 4 more sandwiches in same manner.

Just before serving, cut each sandwich into 4 triangles.
