Ham & Cheese Toastie with Brown Sauce

Carole's Chatter: Ham & cheese toastie w brown sauce

I don't have anything fancy for you today – just a slightly changed up toastie using some leftover ham and also some of my brown sauce I made recently.


4 slices of bread (I used mixed grain)
Spread or butter
Grated cheese
Finely sliced leftover ham
Salt and pepper
Chilli pieces for garnish


Heat up your oven or grill till it's quite hot.  While it is heating, butter the bread and then put it butter side down onto some baking paper on a baking sheet.

Sprinkle each piece with grated cheese – trying to get it evenly across the slice – without falling off the sides.  Sprinkle your ham on and then a bit more cheese and some salt and pepper.  Spoon some dots of brown sauce onto each slice – you don't want to put too much so that the bread goes soggy but just enough to give a bit of a kick of flavour.

Cook in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes – don't forget to check them – it can be a fine line between golden and burned.  Serve after letting them sit for a minute or two with some chilli pieces for a garnish.


  1. What a nice version of a favorite classic lunch!

  2. I had to go check out the brown sauce recipe and yum! Looks tasty! This looks like a lunch I would really enjoy!

  3. Great lunch ... I don't need fancy all the time. :)

  4. We like a simple lunch like this at home on weekends. Toasted sandwiches work for me 😀

  5. Definitely a crowdpleaser! Anything with toasted cheese is a win in my book. :)
