Ham & Cheese French Toastie Roll Ups

Ingredients :

  • 6 slices fresh sandwich bread (I used white, but you could use wholemeal, wholegrain etc) (see notes)
  • 3 slices of melting cheese, each cut into 4 strips (I used Jarlsberg. Tasty, cheddar, gruyere and mozzarella are also great), or
  • ¾ cup grated melting cheese (see notes)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg (large)
  • 2 tbsp milk (full cream or low fat)
  • 2 small slices of ham (around 50g / 1.5 oz)
  • Pinch of salt

Directions :

1 Optional – cut the crusts off the bread.
2 Use a rolling pin to flatten the bread.
3 Divide the ham between the bread and lay it out in a strip about 1cm / ⅓” wide along the bottom edge of the bread. Cut to fit neatly if necessary – that’s what I did.
4 Top each with 2 slices of cheese, or scatter grated cheese along the ham.
5 Starting from the bottom, roll the bread up and finish with the seam side down.
6 Place the egg, milk and salt in a flat dish and use a fork to whisk.
7 Heat butter in a large fry pan over medium high heat.
8 Dip the roll ups in the egg, rolling to coat all over. Then place in the fry pan. Place all roll ups in the same pan.
9 Cook the roll ups for 45 seconds to 1 minute, then turn 90 degrees. Repeat again 2 more times (so 4 sides of each roll up is browned).
10 Remove from pan and serve immediately.
