Every time I make these broiled ham, bacon and Swiss sandwiches, I think about my mom.
They’re the simplest of sandwiches to make, but rather than grill them on the stovetop, she did it all in the oven, and it tasted soooooo good! The edges of the ham got crispy, and everything was hot and melty… oh my goodness, I’m getting nostalgic all over again.
My mom was the sole meal maker in our family of eight, and it seemed like she was always in the kitchen. How she did it day in, day out without complaining is beyond me. She deserves a tribute!

Here’s my thank you video to my favorite meal maker:
And here’s how to make the easy but oh so yummy broiled ham, bacon and Swiss sandwiches.
For each sandwich, butter and broil a couple pieces of thick cut but tender bread.
Flip the bread toasted side down. Add a little shredded Swiss cheese, cooked bacon slices, two slices of Buddig honey ham and the rest of the Swiss cheese.
Broil until cheese is melted and edges of bread are toasted. Serve open-faced or close up traditional sandwich-style.
I love it open-faced!
Broiled Ham, Bacon and Swiss Sandwiches
- 2 slices country bread about 6 ounces
- 4 slices Buddig honey ham
- 2 ounces Swiss cheese
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3 slices bacon, cooked
Arrange an oven rack 5 to 6 inches from the broiler. Heat broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Arrange 2 slices of bread on the prepared sheet and spread each with 1 tablespoon butter. Broil until toasted.
Flip toasted side down, and top with half of the cheese, dividing the bacon and ham between the two bread slices. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and broil until the cheese is melted and the sandwich filling is warm, 1 to 3 minutes.
