One-Pan Ham & Cheese Melts

Guy loves his cooking magazines, and recently picked up a copy of a Better Homes and Gardens’ One-Pan Recipes in the check-out lane. The cover of the magazine featured this pan of ham and cheese melts, made with Hawaiian rolls, brushed with melted butter, chopped shallots, parsley, and garlic, and browned until melty and delicious. We made them for a weeknight dinner and then spotted them at the book club holiday party – they’re really great for any occasion.
