Hello Everyone,

I hope you’re all fine and having a good start of the week. Another week calls for another recipe post for you to enjoy. When it comes to sandwiches, I love everything about them from being able to create my own and also having fails along the way, but that’s what makes them fun right? Just in case you missed my mandazi recipe, find it here. Today I am going to share with you a sandwich recipe which I usually like making from time to time and is really simple. The best part about them is that these are open-faced sandwiches and don’t take that long to make. This is how to make my ham, cheese and mustard sandwiches.

You will need:

  • Slices of white bread
  • Dijon mustard
  • 2 eggs
  • 200gms grated cheddar cheese
  • 200gms sliced ham


  • Preheat your oven to 180°C
  • In a roasting tray, arrange your slices of bread and put aside, I used nine slices in this recipe.

  • Take your cheddar cheese and ham and put them in a bowl, I usually use sliced ham which I chop up to smaller pieces for it to be able to mix well with the cheese.

  • Beat your 2 eggs and then add three teaspoons of Dijon mustard, If you want it to be a bit stronger you can add a little bit more.
  • Take your egg mixture and add it to the ham and cheese then stir altogether.

  • With a tablespoon or clean hands, place spoonfuls of the mixture on each slice of bread making sure it’s spread evenly, my hands usually do a better job than the spoon.

  • Once you are finished, place it in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • Once all the cheese has melted and slightly browned, it’s done.
  • Serve and enjoy.
TIP: You can use these sandwiches as appetizers by cutting them into triangles or squares and make them be bites for everyone to dig into. If you don’t want them open-faced then just slap on another slice and use a toaster.


NOTE: If you have a sensitivity to egg whites which I sometimes have depending on where I bought the eggs, then it will still work if you just mix a tablespoon of milk with the mixture since the cheese is all going to be crispy and delicious, it will still work out. 
There you have it, whenever you need a quick-lunch or supper to prepare with no hustle at all, then this will be for you.
