As a busy working mom, finding the time to prepare tasty meals for my family is virtually impossible. Sandwiches are a stand-by meal for our family, but not only do we get bored with the same old sandwiches over and over again, the total nutrition in a typical sandwich isn’t exactly impressive. Thankfully a little creativity and some tasty ingredients have come together to produce this Ham and Swiss with White Bean Spread sandwich. This super tasty sandwich is the perfect main dish for a busy family meal.
To create the Ham and Swiss with White Bean Spread sandwich, I start with tasty ingredients.
Whole grain bread
dark leafy greens
fiber rich beans
Hillshire Farm ® Deli Select ® Ultra Thin Honey Ham
These ingredients all add to the taste and nutrition of this family-friendly sandwich. Whole grains, vegetables, dairy, and lean protein make this sandwich a filling food pyramid all wrapped up in a neat package.
Before constructing the Ham and Swiss with White Bean Spread sandwich, you need to whip up some white bean spread. To create this spread, which is a tasty and nutrient-rich alternative to mayonnaise, just place a can of white beans in a food processor with two teaspoons of olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon black pepper, and 1 T fresh minced rosemary. Add a splash of lemon juice and process until smooth.
Once your white bean spread is ready, you can put together this tidy, tasty sandwich. Start with 5-6 slices of Hillshire Farm Deli Select Ultra Thin Honey Ham. Hillshire Farm Deli Select Ultra Thin Honey Ham has a slightly sweet flavor from the honey, which pairs perfectly with the savory bean spread. Additionally, Hillshire Farm Deli Select Ultra Thin Honey Ham is sliced super thin for great texture, is very low fat, and packs a powerful protein punch. Not having to stand in line at the deli counter for deli meat is another reason this busy mom prefers using Hillshire Farm Deli Select Ultra Thin Honey Ham to make this dinner sandwich.
After adding the ham to your wheat bread, add a slice of Swiss cheese, several leaves of spring mix or other greens of choice, and a generous spread of the white bean dip. Your tasty sandwich is now ready to serve. The whole grains mixed with plenty of protein will ensure that this sandwich fills your family’s tummies and gives them plenty of energy to complete the day.
Break out of the mold when it comes to making sandwiches with only mayonnaise as the spread. Try using this tasty white bean spread paired with Hillshire Farm Deli Select Ultra Thin Honey ham for a nutritious, tasty meal perfect for busy moms on the go.
