The tried-and-true combination of ham and cheese is tweaked just slightly for this sandwich. Cambozola?s creamy texture and pungent flavor are paired with Black Forest ham, sweet caramelized onions, and grilled rye for an update on the deli classic. What to buy: Cambozola is a German blue cheese that has the creaminess of Camembert mixed with the earthiness of Gorgonzola. It can be found at high-end grocery stores and at cheese shops. If you can?t find it, Gorgonzola dolce makes a nice substitute.
