Open-Face Ham, Cheddar, and Apple Butter Sandwich

Open-Face Ham, Cheddar, and Apple Butter Sandwich
We use our Ciabatta or Country French breads for this recipe!

Yields 6 sandwiches.
Thinly sliced roast turkey can be used instead of Black Forest ham.

3 ciabatta rolls, halved horizontally, or 6 1/2-inch-thick slices country-style bread
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons apple butter
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1/4 pounds Black Forest ham, thinly sliced
12 ounces extra-sharp white cheddar cheese, sliced
1 bunch fresh chives, chopped

Brush cut side of ciabatta rolls with oil. Place rolls, cut side up, on baking sheet. Broil until rolls begin to brown around edges, about 2 minutes. Spread apple butter and mustard on each roll half. Top with ham, then cheese. Broil until cheese melts and begins to brown in spots, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with chives and serve.
