We tend to make this with a multigrain bread from Aldi which makes a pretty healthy ham cheese sandwich. This recipe is for a cold ham and cheese sandwich, but you can also throw this into a sandwich machine, after buttering on the outside, to create a delicious ham and cheese toastie. It could also be grilled to produce the same.

Mustard Options

You can also add a bit of mustard of your choice to the sandwich to make a ham mustard sandwich if you like. It does spice the sandwich up a bit more. It is up to you.
In these pictures I have used some thinly cut ham from Aldi, but you could also try boiling and baking your own ham and using some homemade ham slices. This really does make a terrific sandwich (check out the link at the end of this post), as the glaze also adds a lot of taste to the ham.

Best cheese for ham sandwich

In this recipe I use some mature cheddar cheese which is just delicious and tasty and I  always prefer using an older cheese for these type of sandwiches. I also like to use cheese I have sliced myself rather than pre-processed cheese slices. It just tastes better.

But you could of course also use a lighter cheese or even a Gouda cheese which we also sometimes use.
