Tasty toasties

Makes: 4 toasties
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 8 minutes


8 thick slices bread (sour dough works best)
4 tbsp basil pesto
100g (31/2oz) good melting cheese, sliced
4 slices of Parma ham or other cooked ham
Butter, for spreading


1 Spread one side of each slice of bread with pesto. Layer the cheese and then the ham on 4 of the slices, then top with the remaining bread, pesto side down, to make 4 sandwiches. Spread the outside of the bread with a little butter.

2 Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and cook the toasties for 4-5 minutes, pressing down gently with a spatula so that they cook evenly. Flip the toasties over and cook on the other side for a few more minutes until the bread is toasted and the cheese has melted. (You may need to cook them one at a time or in batches, depending on the size of your pan.) Cut in half diagonally, and serve straight away.
