Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich

A staple for easy weekday lunches and university student meals, is a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. So why shouldn’t it be a camping staple, too?

There is no need for any fancy equipment, just a good grill and you are ready to go. A skillet or a cover helps with the cheese melting but is not necessary. You can pack the sandwich and then cook it when you stop for lunch.

The biggest thing to remember is to make sure that the temperature is fairly low, so the cheese has time to melt before the grilled bread burns. The sandwich goes great with a bowl of soup if you are trying to turn this snack into a meal.
