Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

posted on: Thursday, April 22, 2010

Everyone has a favorite type of sandwich. My husband likes eggs in all of his. My mom likes olives. My son likes butter and jelly. I'm a fan of warm over-the-the-top melted cheese sandwiches. A couple weeks ago when it was chilly and everyone was cranky for a very good reason, I'm sure, I decided to make some melted cheese and ham sandwiches in the oven. This is the ultimate comfort food.

Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwich
  • 12 slices whole wheat white bread
  • 2 cups alfredo sauce
  • cream cheese
  • 8 slices chedder cheese
  • 8 slices thick cut ham
  • freshly grated romano cheese
  1. preheat oven to 350*
  2. Place the Alfredo sauce on a large casserole pan with the slices of bread. Make sure the bread absorbs the sauce well.
  3. On a medium casserole pan layer a slice of bread, cream cheese, a slice of chedder cheese, a slice of ham and another slice of bread. Repeat a second time and add romano cheese on top. 
  4. There is enough to make 4 large sandwiches.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese if fully melted. 
  6. serve warm.


  1. Boy, do these sure sound (and look) good! That is one gourmet sandwich :)

  2. now for the bigger question. How do you stop at just one? Those sandwiches look most delicious.

  3. Like it, like it! Baking these is a great idea because they get that nice crust on the bread.

  4. That looks so delicious...but I would use turkey instead of ham :)

  5. Ooh, yum, I love all those ingredients and you made it look so professional! Never knew you could make a "grilled" sandwich in the oven!

  6. Hola, i found ur blog while looking for a recipe for goiabada and mus say u have a sweet blog here:-)
    and am sure Maria is adorable too:-)
    And do u by any chance have a recipe to make the goaibado at home?
    I was planning to cook the guavas till soft ,then straining and cooking like i would for jelly?
    do u add lime too to it?

  7. Hi sugar plum fairy (I never in a million years thought I would be writing to the sugar plum fairy, I like it) I have never made goiabda but have seen other make it. It seriously takes hundreds of goiabas to make the thick goiabada. How many of these puppies do you have?

  8. This is very similar to a croque monsieur, baked instead of fried. They are amazing, so I am sure this is delicious too.

  9. This sounds like the ideal weekend brunch recipe! :D
