Ham and Cheese sandwich bake

Well, here we go!! To kick off this round of recipes I wanted to find something easy, affordable, different and kid friendly. So, I called my sister in the midwest and asked for her latest potluck find and this is the recipe she suggested. I feel a bit guilty that this is too "simple" for our blog but, it seems all of our favs here are! I love that I usually have the ingredients on hand or can adjust how many to make. She said it was a great brunch idea but honestly, I am thinking a quick weeknight dinner if paired with a soup or salad. can't wait to try it myself and hear your takes on it!

Ham and Cheese Sandwich Bake

1/2 c. butter
2Tb. brown sugar
