Hot Cross Bun Grilled Cheese
Sweet hot cross buns perfectly complement creamy, melted cheddar cheese and salty ham. It's slathered in butter and pressed into a perfect and comforting grilled cheese sandwich.
We used smoked ham and Cheddar but chose any combination you'd like. We bet bacon, egg and sliced American cheese would make an amazing breakfast sandwich.
