It’s National Sandwich Week! We’re celebrating all this week by offering 10% off of this most versatile of sandwich fillings – ham. Below we explore some of our favourite ways to jazz up this sandwich institution.
Ham & Cheese Toasties
It goes without saying that there is nothing that cannot be improved with the addition of cheese, particularly melted cheese. For a classic toastie we recommend using our thickly sliced Ham Off the Bone which is packed full of flavour and a cheese that melts easily like a Gruyere or Gouda or a strong, extra mature Cheddar. The trick to a good toastie is lots of butter and a very hot pan. Heat the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and once you’ve added the sandwich use a plate or bowl with a can of soup or beans on top to weigh it down, this helps to compact the sandwich and ensures that the cheese melts evenly – enjoy!
Mighty Meaty Ham Sandwich
Recreate the classic Subway (other sandwich shops are available!) sandwich with our thickly cut Premium Devon ham and a variety of cured meats. We like it with Milano salami, peppery pastrami and prosciutto parma ham combined with some salty olives like our Kalamata or Classic Blend and a little mayonnaise. This works best on rolls rather than sliced bread as all that filling needs a sturdy receptacle!
Ham & Goats Cheese Baguette
Creamy goats cheese combined with ham and a dollop of fiery tomato chutney – what’s not to love! We recommend using our delicious subtly smoked ham and the Ticklemore Goat cheese with Waterhouse Fayre Spicy Tomato chutney. We’d also recommend using a fresh baguette for this as the hard outer crust works well with the soft goats cheese although this would also work with fresh granary or wholemeal bread to suit your preferences. We like the spicy tomato chutney but you could also use a chilli jam for a bit of sweetness if you prefer.
We hope you enjoy this national sandwich week, remember to tag us in any of your creations via our social media pages!
