Nutrition Information

  • 1 Healthy Fat
  • 0.25 Protein
  • .5 Vegetables


  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
  • 4 tsp. coarse-grain mustard
  • 2 oz. sliced smoked ham, cut into 8 pieces
  • 4 roasted red pepper halves (from a jar)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion


  1. Heat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Using 2 Tbsp. for each, sprinkle the cheese into 8 mounds on the baking sheet. Spread each mound out into a 3-inch round. Bake for 3 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and spread slightly. Remove from the oven and let stand on the baking sheet until the cheese sets, about 2 minutes.
  3. Using a thin-bladed metal spatula, lift the rounds off the baking sheet. Brush the smooth side of each round with mustard. Top each of 4 rounds with 1 piece of ham, a red pepper, another piece of ham and one-fourth of the onion. Top with remaining cheese rounds, mustard side down and serve warm.
