Bacon Ham and Grilled Cheese with Brown Sugar Mustard

This amazing sandwich is my celebratory sandwich. Yup that’s right. I’m kicking off a giveaway today for my first anniversary. And I’ve been celebrating all week long with some of my favorite things. First I kicked it off with this delicious Outback copycat bread on Monday. Can you say yum? celebrating.

Mid week I celebrated with chocolate. Every celebration needs chocolate in my opinion. I shared these delicious little beasts. They’re rich, gooey and addicting.

After just one bite my 12 year turned to look at me with wide eyes and said, “Mom, you have to put these on your blog!”

And so I did. I can’t keep them a secret any longer.

I made it with this bread recipe here but you can use whatever suits your tastes.
