Fast Food Review: Big Hot Ham ‘N’ Cheese from Hardee’s
The closest Hardee’s to me is about an hour away, so whenever I am near one, I always get a standard favorite of mine. This trip was no exception, I couldn’t resist the Big Hot Ham ‘N’ Cheese.
There is nothing fancy about this sandwich really, just your basic ham and swiss cheese on a sesame seed bun. Sometimes it’s good to stick with simple rather than conquering something with too many ingredients to count. The Big Hot Ham ‘N’ Cheese represents tasty simplicity. It doesn’t blow you away with anything yet it’s a satisfying sandwich that always gives me what I’ve come to expect from it. The sesame seed bun is always soft and fresh and that’s all I can really ask for when it comes to a bun. The sandwich is loaded with ham and 2 slices of swiss cheese. Some ham can be extremely salty, but the ham used in this sandwich is not like that. There truly is no need for condiments. This sandwich is packed full of flavor with just the ham and cheese alone. No need to add anything additional, just stick to the basics, it works.
My only complaint about this sandwich would be that the ham and cheese is usually just piled in the center of the sandwich (as you can see in the pic above). I’m sure no one likes having to take their sandwich apart just to put it back together the correct way before you can grub down. As for nutrition details, with 520 cal, 24 grams of fat and 2190 mg of sodium-look out arteries. As for grubbing on the go-if the sandwich is made correctly, it can easily be eaten while you are driving (I don’t advocate bad driving but I know a lot of people are in a rush :D). Without extra condiments, there is not much of a mess here.
Pros: No need for anything extra. Great flavor. Great for grubbing on the go.
Cons: Everything piled in the center of the sandwich. Not a very healthy sandwich. Pricey.
