Hetty’s Wednesday; The Hagen Sandwich

IMG_3423Hey everyone!

It’s Wednesday, Humpday, mid-week and I’m actually really excited about it. Every day is a gift and we should embrace every day with joy or at least be as positive as possible. sometimes we all go through difficult time periods in our life. Somehow, it will be all be ok one day. Maybe you’re having a hard day today, maybe you’re going through a heartbreak, the loss of a friend or a family member, or maybe you just lost your job. No matter what happens to us, with time we get through it. It’s not always easy, most of the time it’s hard, it’s horrible to even and even though at the time we don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel things have a way of working itself out in the end. The most important thing to do is to get out of bed every morning no matter how bad you feel, eat something, anything. If possible, get a dog and go for long walks, or go to the dog park. Do this every day and you will get through it somehow.

Well, that was my Wednesday – humpday, pep-talk. The kitchen is not only used for cooking but also a glass of wine and deep conversations, laughing, crying, talking about life and everything in between. But from talking to cooking, today’s recipe is a grilled ham and cheese sandwich with garlic butter. This is something I haven’t made in forever. I forgot all about it, then suddenly I stumbled over the recipe I got from a really good friend of mine, a really long time ago. We’re still good friends and I’m really excited about sharing this recipe with all of you. It’s super easy, and it’s so, so good. Good food at any time of the day is great, and even better when you can share it with family and friends.

It’s October, and I’ve already started to plan this year’s Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is normally big at our house, good food from the time I wake up until I go to bed. With sick family members etc and a  little drama, I’m not sure how this year’s Thanksgiving is going to turn out, but I will do my very best to make it amazing either way.  Thanksgiving is one of my all-time favorite holidays of the year, but as most of you know I love all the holidays but Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving are big at our house. Our 4th of July celebration is always amazing at our house as well.  What’s your favorite holiday? 🙂


1 Clove of garlic

2-3 TBS Butter

2 slices of ham

Cheese of your choice. ( preferably to different types of cheese.)

4 slices of bread


  1. Heat up the panini grill. Add the butter into a small bowl. Add in the garlic. ( use a garlic press.)
  2.  Add a thin layer of garlic butter on all four slices of bread. Then add one layer of cheese on two of them. A slice of ham and another layer of cheese. Put the other slice of bread on top and put them both in the panini grill for a few minutes.
  3.  When the toast is done, cut them in half diagonally and serve them up as is or with fires on the side.

This recipe is super easy and so incredibly tasty and perfect as lunch, breakfast or a midnight snack any day of the week. I really hope you love this recipe as much as we do.

I hope y’all have an amazing Wednesday so far and I hope to see y’all back here tomorrow for a new post.
