October 30, 2019

Serves 6

Make one giant toastie in a sheet pan! A layer of overlapping bread slices is topped with ham, cheese, tomato and red onion. Add a final layer of bread, then top with a weighted sheet tray. Bake in the oven until crisp and slice into giant sandwiches.

12 slices soft white sliced pan
100g butter
12 slices Denny Dry Cure Ham
350g Cheddar, grated
2 ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
½ a red onion, thinly sliced
Salt and black pepper

  • Position one rimmed baking tray on a rack in the middle of oven and preheat to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4. Turn a second rimmed tray the same size upside down on your work surface.
  • Spread one side of each slice of bread with butter. Arrange six of the slices, butter side-down, on the inverted baking tray. Layer one slice of Denny ham on each slice and top with one-sixth of the cheese, 2-3 slices of tomato and some red onion. Add one more slice of ham to each, then season with salt and pepper. Top with the remaining bread slices, butter side up.
  • Carefully remove the hot baking tray from the oven and place on top of the sandwiches, rimmed side up. Holding both baking trays together, return to the oven and place a heavy ovenproof pan on top.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until the bread is golden brown and the cheese has melted. Carefully remove from the oven and transfer the sandwiches to a cutting board. Cut into pieces and serve.
