Ham & Cheese Toastie

Served up with coleslaw, cajun seasoned wedges and some mustard-mayo made with english mustard a toasted sandwich makes a perfect lunchtime meal
It feels like a bit of a stretch to call a Ham & Cheese Toastie a recipe, but I don't care. A ham and cheese toastie, along with some coleslaw, some cajun seasoned potato wedges and a little pot of mustard mayo made with Colemans English Mustard is a saturday or sunday lunchtime treat.
Ham & Cheese Toastie
toastie, toasted sandwich, grilled cheese


Serves: 1
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes


  • 2 slices of bread from a tin loaf
  • 2 slices of decent quality ham
  • Enough sliced cheddar to cover the bread 1.5x (Reduce to 1x if using optional ingredients)
  • Optional: A handful of mozarella and a few slices of Shropshire Red
  • Spread


  1. Pre-heat a George Foreman style grill, if you have one, failing that get a heavy based frying pan at the ready on a low heat on the hob
  2. Spread the opposite sides of the bread (what will become the outside of the toasted sandwich)
  3. Arrange the bread so the two buttered sides are inside (so you can put the two slices down on top of each other)
  4. Put 1/3 of the cheddar dotted across the top of the bread (or the optional ingredients, instead) to hold the ham in place
  5. Cut the slices of ham into quarters (this matters if they're curved slices) and using the square edges you've now got, arrange on top of the cheese
  6. Place the remaining cheese on top of the ham, to cover it
  7. Place the slice of bread that has the fillings on onto the grill/frying pan, so the buttered side is in contact with the grill
  8. Place the other slice of bread so that the buttered side is facing up towards the other half of the grill (or the open air if using a frying pan)
  9. Grill until golden brown and done, turning if using a frying pan - which will probably take a little longer. Don't turn the heat up to brown the bread quicker, the cheese will have less opportunity to melt.
