Grilled Vegetarian Ham and Cheese

I first came across this very tasty flavour at the teahouse of the Buddhist Temple in Mississauga, I kind of like the flavour of this soy-based fake ham, and did like the combination of the ham and cheese (though I suspect that they might have used fake soy-based cheese too; I didn't, the cheese I used was a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar, but you could use your favourite cheese). You can get vegetarian ham in any Chinese supermarket, it comes in a long log, from which you can slice off a chunk to use in any number of recipes.

Grilled Vegetarian Ham and Cheese
1 thick slice vegetarian ham, cut into thin wedges
handful shredded cheese
2 slices bread
butter or oil

Butter 2 sides of bread. Place one slice, butter side down, on a plate. Place sliced vegetarian on top of bread. Pile shredded cheese on top. Place other slice of bread on top, butter side out. Grill for 5-6 minutes on panini grill on high, or on medium heat on a heavy frying pan, flipping after 2-3 minutes, when bottom is golden brown.
