This recipe is adapted from one of my Mam’s cookery school recipes - Killachonna Cookery School. This makes a perfect supper on a cold winter’s night. It’s as simple as a toasted sandwich but it tastes better! In this recipe you don’t need to put in the ham or chives but you can add extra ingredients (onions, salami etc.). My Mam loves brie (I love it too!!!) and my Mam always puts it in her pan-fried sandwich.
Pan-Fried Ham and Cheese Toastie
25g (2oz) butter
4 slices wholemeal bread
100g (3oz) cheddar cheese, grated
1 teaspoon snipped fresh chives
100g (3oz) ham, chopped
1. Butter the bread and arrange the cheese and ham over half of the slices, buttered side down.
2. Sprinkle over the chives and cover with the remaining slices, buttered side up.
3. Preheat a frying pan and cook the sandwiches for 2 mins on each side, until golden brown and the cheese has melted.
4. Cut into triangles and serve.
