Inside-out Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

A decadent ham and cheese toasty that's crispy and cheesy on the outside!



  • 4 tbsp unsalted batter, softened
  • 8 slices of bakery bread
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 250g sliced Swiss cheese
  • 250g Ziggys Supreme Ham, thinly sliced
  • Dill pickle slices
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserve


  1. Butter each slice of bread and sprinkle with Parmesan, pressing to help it adhere.
  2. Invert the slices onto a work surface, cheese side down.
  3. Top 4 of the slices with the Swiss cheese, ham and pickles.
  4. Mix the mustard and preserves and spread on the remaining 4 slices of bread.
  5. Close the sandwiches and griddle over moderate heat, flipping, until golden, crisp on the outside and melted inside, about 3 minutes.
  6. Cut in half and serve right away.
