Feel free to modify/adjust as you like… Ingredients:

  • 1 slice of a good multi-grain bread
  • 1 Slice (1/8″ thick or a bit more) smoked ham (the size of the bread slice you’ll use)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • A pinch habanero or cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • A pinch salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 Lime
  • 2-4 grape tomatoes slice in half lengthwise, mixed with a bit of slat and black pepper
  • Spicy paste of your choice (I used Green Thai Pepper paste I made) or Tabasco/Cholula etc hot sauce
  • Some coarsely¬†chopped cilantro
  • 2 tbsp shredded mozzarella
  1. In a small bowl mix oil, sugar and all spices.
  2. Cover the both sides of the ham with it
  3. Either sear or pan fry until browned/crisped, just a minute of two.
  4. Lightly toast the bread.
  5. Spread the spicy paste on a few drops of the hot sauce on it.
  6. Spread the avocado on it, squeeze some lime juice on it, a bit salt and a bit of the cilantro.
  7. Place ham on top of the avocado-ed bread and then the tomatoes and cilantro on top of the ham.
  8. Spread some mozzarella over everything, and place in a toaster oven set on broil for a couple of minutes until the cheese starts to brown.

And then just enjoy…. A side of some more cut grape tomatoes with salt, black pepper, lime and olive oil works perfect with it. Oh, I’m getting hungry.
