    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 8
    1 head(s) garlic
    1 tbsp. whole-grain stone-ground mustard
    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee unsalted butter, softened
    8 slice(s) marble rye bread
    6 oz. natural deli-sliced ham
    4 slice(s) low-sodium Swiss cheese
    4 thin slices red onion
    4 Hy-Vee lengthwise-sliced sandwich pickle slices


    1. To make garlic-mustard butter, remove papery skin from head of garlic and place on a piece of aluminum foil. Spray garlic with cooking spray and wrap in foil.
    2. Roast at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until cloves are very soft. Cool briefly. Separate cloves of garlic and squeeze garlic pulp into a medium bowl. Discard skins. Whip garlic pulp with mustard and butter.
    3. Spread 1 teaspoon garlic-mustard butter on each slice of bread. Top with ham, cheese, an onion slice and a pickle slice. Place another slice of bread garlic-mustard-side-down on top and press down firmly.
    4. Grill on a countertop grill until cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.
