Ham and Cheese Toastie

If you are looking for a simple make yourself meal look no further than this easy ham and cheese toastie sandwich cooked in a pie iron.

There are so many types of ham and cheese combinations that everyone is certain to find one they like. We lean towards some of the plastic shrink-wrapped options as they last a better in a cooler when camping.

The true art of making a good ham and cheese toastie isn’t the ingredients but being able to manage the heat to get the bread browned and the cheese gooey melted.

Ingredients

2 slices bread

2 slices ham

2 slices cheese

Equipment

square pie iron

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat the pie iron in the fire so it is ready to cook in.

    Tip: Not preheating takes longer, increases the chance of sticking, and can make soggy.

  2. Make a sandwich with the order bread, cheese slice, ham, another cheese slice, and bread.

    Tip: Placing cheese on both sides on the toastie makes it melt better and appear moister.

  3. Place in the pie iron and close.

    Tip: There is no butter on the outside of the sandwich as our pie iron is well seasoned so it doesn’t stick. If a new pie iron or concerned please feel free to add this step.

  4. Cook over the coals in the fire.

    Tip: If you cook directly in the hot red flames in can make the pie iron black and heat up too quickly burning the bread without melting the cheese. The best spot is over some hot fresh charcoal.

  5. It takes about 5 minutes to cook.

    Tip: This time varies widely based on the heat of the fire and build of the pie iron so check frequently until you get an idea of time needed.
