Pull Apart Ham and Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Sandwiches are such a simple go-to meal. During the school year especially, I find myself falling back on this simple food perhaps just a little too often.

Too busy to make this right away? Pin it for later! Pin this post to your favorite board on Pinterest and it will be there when you’re ready!

Sandwiches don’t have to be boring though. Today’s recipe for hot ham and cheese sandwiches is always a big hit with our family and I’m sure they will be with yours too.

These foiled-wrapped hot sandwiches are so much more than a boring slice of deli meat between two pieces of bread. The combination of salty ham and melted cheese is so good too.

They go perfectly with a side salad or bowl of soup for an easy weeknight dinner or quick lunch. They make great party sandwiches too.

Variations:

  • Use any type of ham you like best. Black forest ham and honey ham are easy to find in the deli section of your favorite grocery store. You can also use leftover ham from a previous meal.
  • Change it up by using a different type of cheese. We like Monterey jack cheese, mozzarella, muenster cheese, or Swiss cheese slices.
  • Try roast beef, turkey, or chicken instead of ham.
  • Instead of french bread, use slices of bread and a panini press to make a ham and cheese melt.
  • Make individual foil-wrapped sandwiches on dinner rolls or hamburger buns.
  • Make this recipe into ham and cheese sliders using a package of Hawaiian sweet rolls. Keeping the whole package of buns attached, cut the tops of the rolls off, add the filling, and wrap in foil. Bake as directed above. When you are ready to serve them, cut apart the individual sliders and enjoy!
  • Enhance your mayo. Add it to a small bowl and mix in some Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, and/or garlic powder before spreading it onto the bread.
  • Add your favorite mustard. Dijon mustard, yellow mustard, and stone ground mustard are some of our favorites.

TIPS & TRICKS:

  • Make these simple sandwiches ahead of time. Slice and fill your bread loaf, then wrap well in plastic wrap and refrigerate until you are ready to bake it.
  • Save yourself from having to clean up a mess in the bottom of your oven by placing the foiled loaf on a baking sheet.
