  • 8 slices thick-cut multigrain, whole wheat, poppy seed, white, or pumpernickel bread

  • Margarine or butter, softened

  • 4 teaspoon mayonnaise or salad dressing

  • 4 ounce provolone and/or cheddar cheese, thinly sliced

  • 4 ounce thinly sliced cooked ham or prosciutto

  • 2 tablespoon mango chutney

  • Fresh fruit, such as sliced pears and apples, pineapple wedges, or grapes (optional)


  1. Spread one side of each bread slice with margarine or butter. Place four bread slices, buttered sides down, on griddle. Spread mayonnaise on the four slices on the griddle. Top with provolone cheese. Top two of the bread slices with red sweet peppers and two with slices of fruit. Top all four with ham or prosciutto.
