Cheese and ham are the perfect pair.
While the possibilities for toastie fillings are endless, one combination that truly stands out is ham and cheese.
It’s a classic for a reason & you just can’t beat it – here’s our top 5 reasons why:
1. Classic Flavour Combo
Ham and cheese have long been recognised as a classic flavour pairing, and for good reason.
The saltiness and smokiness of the ham perfectly complement the rich and creamy notes of the cheese – it’s the ultimate food marriage.
2. Super Versatile
Another reason why ham and cheese make the best toasties is their incredible versatility.
No matter what type of ham or cheese you prefer, there’s a combination out there to suit your taste.
From thinly sliced deli ham with cheddar cheese or hearty chunks of honey-glazed ham with brie – your ham & cheese toastie is totally customisable.
3. That Texture
The crispy and buttery bread exterior.
The satisfying meaty ham bite.
The gooey, stringy cheese pull.
Need we say more…..
4. Nutritionally Nice
It’s also worth noting that ham and cheese provide a well-rounded nutritional balance.
Ham is a good source of protein while cheese offers calcium and additional protein.
Factoring in two slices of whole-grain bread and you’ve got a pretty nutritionally wholesome meal.
Of course, moderation is key!
5. Easy and Quick to Make
Last but not least, ham and cheese toasties are incredibly easy and quick to make.
Whether it’s a speedy lunch, late-night snack, or a simple meal, a toastie is the perfect solution.
With just a few ingredients and a hot sandwich press, you can have a mouth-watering meal ready in minutes.
