Ham cheese toasty

Cheese and ham toasties are a deliciously comforting and quick option. Here's a simple recipe that will have you making these tasty toasts in no time.

Ingredients :

  • 2 slices of bread of your choice (wholemeal bread, rye bread, etc.)
  • 4 slices of cooked ham
  • 100 g grated cheese (Emmental, Cheddar, or Gruyère)
  • 2 tablespoons of softened butter
  • Mustard (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Chopped fresh herbs for garnish (parsley, chives, etc.)

Instructions :

  1. Preheating: Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).

  2. Preparation of ingredients: Remove the ham slices from the refrigerator so that they reach room temperature. Grate the cheese if you haven't already done so. Also let the butter soften at room temperature.

  3. Buttering the slices of bread: Lightly spread the softened butter on one side of each slice of bread. If you like, you can add a thin layer of mustard to the unbuttered side for a tangier flavor.

  4. Assembly: Place two slices of cooked ham on one of the buttered slices of bread. Then distribute half of the grated cheese over the ham.

  5. Assembly: Close the toasts by placing the unbuttered slices of bread on top of the cheese. This will give you a sandwich.

  6. Cooking: Place the toasts on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the remaining grated cheese on top of the toasts.

  7. Bake: Place the toasts in the preheated oven for about 5 to 7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned.

  8. Seasoning: Before serving, if desired, add a pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper on top.

  9. Final garnish: Sprinkle the toasts with chopped fresh herbs for a touch of freshness and aroma.

  10. Tasting: Your cheese and ham toasts are now ready to be enjoyed. Serve them hot to enjoy the melting texture of the cheese and the flavor of the ham.

In conclusion, cheese and ham toasts are perfectly suited to times when you are looking for a quick and tasty option. This simple recipe creates these delicious toasts in no time, without sacrificing flavor quality. By combining the sweetness of cooked ham with the richness of melted cheese, each bite is a harmony of textures and tastes. The oven cooking step adds a touch of crispy and golden brownness, while the fresh herbs in the garnish bring an aromatic and refreshing note.
