Use the leftover lunch meat from your fridge to create this easy, gooey, delicious grilled cheese sandwich!


This delicious grilled cheese sandwich recipe is coming to you from Washington D.C. My cute boys and I explored the nation's capital for hours today, walking miles and miles with ABE as the end goal. Ohhh thank you, Abe, for without you our boys nevvvvver would have continued walking. 


We arrived back at the hotel and guess who fell promptly asleep? Nope, not the children. I am wiped. Out. We will explore more tomorrow!

I hope you love this grilled cheese sandwich as much as my family does. Use whatever lunch meat is in your fridge and you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!

Use up the lunch meat in your fridge to create this EASY, gooey, yummy grilled cheese creation!


  • 4 slices rye bread
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, at room temperature
  • Sprinkling of seasoned salt
  • 1 cup shredded provolone cheese or 4 slices
  • 6 slices ham
  • 8 slices salami
  • 4 tomato slices
  • ½ avocado, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded colby-jack cheese or 4 slices


  1. Place the bread slices on a flat work surface. Spread 1 tablespoon of butter evenly over one side of each slice of bread. Sprinkle seasoned salt over the buttered bread slices (don’t overdo it!).
  2. Warm a skillet over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Layer each sandwich as follows: Slice of bread, butter side down, ½ cup shredded provolone cheese (or 2 slices), 3 slices ham, 4 slices salami, 2 tomato slices, ½ of the avocado slices, ½ cup shredded colby-jack cheese (or 2 slices) and slice of bread, butter side up.
  3. Place sandwiches onto the hot skillet. Cook on each side for about 3 to 4 minutes, or until the bottom layer of cheese begins to melt around the edges. Cut in half and serve!
