  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1/4 cup minced onion

  • 2 tablespoons flour (divided)

  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard

  • 1 tablespoon dill pickle juice

  • 1 cup Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original Almondmilk or Extra Creamy Almondmilk

  • 2 oz. cream cheese

  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  • 4 Bolillo or soft French rolls (halved horizontally)

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard (to assemble)

  • 16 dill pickle slices

  • 12 oz. thinly sliced ham

  • 2 tablespoons butter (to grill)


  1. 1

    To prepare cheese sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Whisk in 1 tablespoon of the flour, mustard and pickle juice and cook for 1 minute more. Slowly add Almond Breeze, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes. Add cream cheese and cook until sauce is smooth and thickened; remove from heat.

  2. 2

    Toss Swiss cheese with remaining flour and add to Breeze mixture a little at a time, whisking slowly and constantly. Place back on very low heat cooking only until cheese is fully melted. Season with salt and pepper; set aside and keep warm.

  3. 3

    To assemble sandwiches, spread roll bottoms with mustard. Top with pickles and ham and close sandwiches. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook sandwiches for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until warm and golden brown, pressing down firmly with a plate or spatula to compress. Remove from skillet and carefully remove roll tops. Drizzle with half the warm cheese sauce and replace roll tops. Serve with remaining cheese sauce. Makes 4 servings.
