Cheese & Parma Ham Toasties with Basil Pesto

There isn't much that a tantalising hit of Pesto can't improve, and these Italian-style toasties are a great example. Using Parma ham and a good dollop of our Classic Basil Pesto, a simple lunch becomes an oozy, herby gourmet delight.

Buon Appetito



  1. Spread one side of each slice of bread with Sacla’ Pesto
  2. Layer the cheese and then the ham on 2 of the slices then top with remaining bread, Pesto-side down
  3. Spread the outside of the bread with a little butter
  4. Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and cook the toasties for 4-5 minutes on one side, until bread underneath is toasted (press down gently with a spatula so they cook evenly)
  5. Flip the toasties over and cook on the other side for a few more minutes until bread is toasted and cheese has melted
  6. Cut in half diagonally and serve straight away
