For one of Hubby’s baseball team BBQs, he wanted to bring something different from the usual dogs. I had seen this on Pintrest (my FAV site) so we thought we’d try it out….at the BBQ of course because heaven forbid we pre-try out a recipe before serving to guests!!! The Pintrest link brought it back to a Betty Crocker recipe on so thank you for sharing! I really liked this because you can make ahead of time, eat cold if you have to, but it’s perfect for throwing in somebody’s (hopefully a person you know) oven or on a campfire or BBQ pit

Grilled Ham & Cheese Pull-Apart Sandwich


  • 1  loaf Italian bread (10 to 12 inches)
  • 3  tablespoons butter or margarine, softened (we skipped the butter)
  • 1  tablespoon spicy brown or country-style Dijon mustard (Hubby doesn’t like Dijon so we used an Extra Spicy Mustard)
  • 6  slices (1 oz each) Swiss cheese (we mixed it up using Hubby’s favorite cheeses so use what you like)
  • 3/4  lb thinly sliced fully cooked ham (we also added Pastrami)


  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. Spray 25×18-inch sheet of heavy-duty foil with cooking spray (we skipped this step- didn’t need it). Without cutting all the way through, cut loaf of bread into 12 (3/4-inch) slices, cutting to within 1/4 inch of bottom.
  2. Stir together butter and mustard (we skipped using the butter). Spread every other slice of bread with slightly less than 2 teaspoons mustard mixture, creating 6 sandwiches. Fold each slice of cheese in half diagonally; tuck each into sandwich. Divide ham evenly among sandwiches, tucking in to fit. Place loaf on center of foil. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion.
  3. Place foil-wrapped loaf on grill over medium heat (or you can cook in your oven). Cover grill; cook 20 to 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and loaf is hot, turning loaf frequently. To serve, open packet carefully to allow steam to escape. Remove foil from loaf; pull apart sandwiches.

You DO have to keep an eye on it somewhat so watch your beer consumption….we made two and the second got a little toooo toasty but it was still good!
