This unusual sandwich, besides being a delicious hot savoury, is also excellent cold and very nice for the picnic basket or a cocktail party.


A few thin slices of cooked lean ham, Gruyère cheese, butter, mustard, thin slices of bread, salt and pepper.


Cut the ham into neat little square slices, and' spread with a little mustard. Lay the ham between thin slices of Gruyère cheese of the same size, sprinkle these with a little salt, pepper and cayenne and sandwich the whole between slices of thin buttered bread. Fry these in boiling fat and serve very hot. They can also be used uncooked and make excellent sandwiches.
