How to Make a Ham and Cheese Sandwich Step by Step
Are you are looking for a sandwich that is delicious and nutritious? A ham and cheese sandwich is your best choice in this case! This simple sandwich is prepared very quickly and without any complications, but it tastes delicious. Ideal for breakfast, as a snack or any other time of the day. To make it you'll only need bread, some cheese and cooked ham. In this OneHowTo article we explain you how to make a ham and cheese sandwich step by step.
One of the essential characteristics of the ham and cheese sandwich is the fact that is prepared with sliced bread. You will need two slices of bread for each mixed sandwich that you prepare.
You can buy sliced bread at any supermarket and there is a big variety of different types. You can choose wholegrain, gluten-free, with seeds... the decision is on your hands.
Carefully add two slices of cooked ham on one of the slices of bread. If you bought ham special for sandwich it could probably fit in perfectly, whereas if the slices are from a big piece of meat you must take care to ensure that everything fits perfectly on the slice of bread.
Next, you should do the same with the cheese and put one or two slices of ham on top of the ham. If you choose to use two slices of cheese, the best will be to put one in the middle of the two slices of ham.
As for the cheese variety, you can choose the one you like, but the most recommended cheeses are the soft cheeses which easily melt and ooze: edam, cheddar, havarti, mozzarella, etc.
The next step will be to cover the sandwich with the other slice of bread and spread some butter or margarine on both sides of the sandwich. This will make the sandwich turn golden brown when cooked. If you want to make a light ham and cheese sandwich, you can leave the butter out.
Plug in the sandwich maker and wait for it to warm up a bit. In some cases, they have indicator lights that signal when the machine is ready for use. Next, you must put the sandwich in sandwich maker and close the lid so that the top plate is on the bread slice. You'll have to wait a few minutes for the cheese to be melted properly and the bread to be nicely toasted.
When removing the bread from the sandwich maker, unplug the device and take great caution not to burn yourself, because the metal plates acquire high temperatures. Likewise, it is not appropriate to use metal utensils to lift the mixed sandwich out as you could scratch the sandwich maker.
If you don't have a sandwich maker you can still prepare delicious hot ham and cheese sandwiches. In this case, put the sandwich in a pan and place it on the stove. Turn the sandwich on both sides so it gets brown and when it achieves the golden colour you want, take it out from the fire.
