Meals of the Week – Ham, Tomato and Cheese Grilled Sandwiches

Well this week I could not decided which days to have which meals so this is what we are having in some order but for sure we will be having our modified Easter meal on Sunday. We decided not to do a full traditional meal like we did last year since it costs so much for just two people but when I saw beet salad in the grocery store flyer this week I had to have it!

So this is a meal that Mr. H requests all the time and I always say yes because it is so easy and I thought I would share it this week since it is great if you are going to end up with lots of leftover Easter ham or actually just a little ham will work for this too and most the other ingredients can vary by what you have on hand.


Ham or Kassler – I normally use about 200 grams or one lunch meat size per piece of bread

1-2 Tomatoes Sliced

Cheese – You want a cheese that melts but not browns – with that being said I usually just use whatever is in the fridge

Mustard – I prefer a grainy mustard for this but like with the cheese use what you have

Sauce – Mix a heaping spoon of mayonnaise with relish and hot sauce – Ok third time’s a charm but seriously if you are not into mayo skip this and use some creamy salad dressing or once again whatever you have on hand

 Sliced Bread – super good way to use up some sorta stale end of the week bread

What to do:

Heat the oven to about 180 C / 375 F

Cover a baking sheet with baking paper

Lay your bread out on the baking paper

Spread a layer of your sauce of choice on bread

Lay your ham or kassler over the sauce

Spread a thin layer of mustard on meat

Lay tomato and other desired veggie on mustard

Cover generously with cheese

Bake until the cheese is melted and just bubbling

Enjoy with a side of kettle chips!

  1. as an expat, I love the ‘just use whatever you have’ bits…that’s my problem with most recipes I find, where do you get these ingredients?! hehe also, that taco salad sounds yummmmy.

    • I am so glad you liked it as I was wondering if people perhaps just thought I was being lazy but it is so true that now that I am in Sweden most recipes only have a few of the actual listed ingredients!
