Sometimes a cook is just too tired to cook a full meal. There is nothing wrong with serving sandwiches sometimes, especially these sandwiches. Hero Ham Sandwiches take only about 15 minutes and you are serving your family warm sandwiches of meat, cheese, vegetables, and of course, bread. Serve with fruit and you have a complete meal. The Quick and Easy Meatball Heroes are ready in minutes. In this sandwich you have meat, soup, cheese, and lettuce. Again, serve with baby carrots or a bowl of fruit for a complete meal.
Hero Ham Sandwiches

- 1 red bell pepper, sliced into rings
- 1 green bell pepper, sliced into rings
- 1 lb Honey baked ham slices
- 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
- 2 French baguette loaves, cut into thirds

Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the onions and bell peppers; saute, stirring until vegetables are tender. This will take about 5 minutes. Cool slightly. Preheat the broiler.
Lay the baguette sections on a cutting board and slice each horizontally. Spread each bottom part with the Dijon mustard. Layer the ham slices and the onion mixture over the bottom baguette slice and sprinkle a generous tablespoon of cheese over the top. Place the open-face baguette slices on a baking sheet and broil for 3 to 4 minutes until cheese is melted. Replace the top slices and serve warm.
