Ham and Cheese on "Rye"

Just a quickie here cuz this turned out pretty good.  It's just another quick microwave bun or bread or whatever you want to do with it.  It turned out very close to a rye bread taste.  But there's no rye flour in it.  The ingredients that make it are coffee and caraway seeds.

It's made with my handy english muffin microwave gadget.

Here's the recipe:

                         Ham and Cheese on "Rye"

Recipe By     :Ginny Larsen
Serving Size  : 1
Categories    : Bread/lunch/Pork

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
                        Rye Bun
  2        tablespoons  almond flour, Honeyville -- (I use Honeyville blanched almond flour.  You can use almond meal if you prefer or that's what you have)
  1         tablespoon  flax meal, Golden
  2        tablespoons  parmesan cheese -- grated (I used the canned stuff)
  1/2      teaspoon  baking powder
              sprinkle  salt -- (I gave it about 4 or 5 shakes... not much)
  1/2      teaspoon  caraway seeds
  1         large  egg
  1         tablespoon  extra virgin olive oil
  2        tablespoons  coffee -- (nice way to use left over coffee from the morning)

                        Ham and cheese filling
  1        teaspoon  mustard -- Or however much you like
  1        ounce  ham slices -- (I used deli ham, low sodium, thinly sliced) I actually don't know how much I used.  Pile on how much you like.
  1        ounce  Swiss cheese slice

For the bun: Put the first 5 dry ingredients in a small bowl (a cereal bowl will do).  Make a well in the middle and add the liquid ingredients.  Mix it well.

Take a microwave english muffin container (available at Walmart in the microwave section), or another microwave container of your choice, and put half of the batter in.  Microwave on high approximately 1 minute.

Plop it out on the counter and wipe out the container with a paper towel.  Pour in the remainder of the batter and microwave again for 1 minute.

Fix the sandwich by spreading on the mustard and adding your ham and cheese.
