Ham and Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Ham and cheese sandwich made with mature Cheddar cheese the packet wafer thin ham in a wholemeal bread.

British classic ham and cheese sandwich although very simple to make, both these ingredients partner nicely in wholemeal bread – with a spoonful of mayo. Be sure to spread the mayo on the sliced Cheddar cheese side so both ingredients combine well with every bite – before biting through the ham.
