Grilled Ham & Cheese Toasties

  • Brush melted butter on one side of each slice of bread.

  • Combine all cheeses, thyme, salt and black pepper in a large mixing bowl.

  • Spread a spoonful of cheese mix on the unbuttered side of four bread slices and cover with a slice of ham.

  • Repeat the previous step 3 times on each slice, then finish with the cheese mix on top.

  • Close the toastie with remaining four slices of bread, buttered side up.

  • In a frying pan over moderate heat, slowly fry the toasties until golden brown on both sides and the cheese has melted.

Chilli & Beer Sauce

  • Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over a high heat and fry the leeks.

  • Slowly pour in beer and cook over high heat until almost completely reduced.

  • Adjust to moderate heat and stir in cream, mustard, salt and pepper.

  • Simmer until a thick sauce forms then remove from the heat.


  • Slice each toastie in half and serve with a side of chilli & beer dipping sauce.
