I once worked near a W.G. Grinders, my favorite place for baked sandwiches at lunchtime. Sadly, W.G. Grinders no longer has any locations open in Indiana (there are a few in Ohio). They sure made great sandwiches. Now I have to make ham and cheese grinders at home to satisfy my cravings.
This sandwich is a great way to make an outstanding baked sandwich at home. It’s very easy, yet very tasty. Of course, you can use any meat or cheese you like. The key ingredients are the garlic butter and the little sprinkle of paprika at the end. Mmmm… tasty!
Also try my steakhouse grinder.
