Makes: 8 servings

Yield: 20 sandwiches

Prep: 20 mins

Cook: 10 mins

  • 10 dried dates, preferably medjool, pitted
  • Salt
  • 20 slices  deli ham
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 tsp. butter
  • 20 slices  white bread, crusts trimmed
  • 3 cups loosely packed arugula
  • Dijon mustard, for spreading
  1. In a saucepan, bring 1/2 cup water and the dates to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a food processor. Add 1/4 tsp. salt and process until smooth. Spread each ham slice with 1/2 tsp. date mixture.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tsp. butter over medium heat. Add 2 slices ham, date side down. Cook until golden-brown, about 1 minute. Spread the top of the slices with another 1/2 tsp. date mixture, flip the slices and cook for 1 minute more. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining butter, ham and some of the date mixture.
  3. Spread the remaining date mixture on 10 bread slices. Top with the arugula and 2 pieces of ham. Spread the mustard on the remaining 10 bread slices and cover the sandwiches. Cut the sandwiches in half.
