About this recipe: I look forward to making this sandwich when I have leftover béchamel sauce form a lasagne or cauliflower cheese recipe. Makes a lovely lunch with a green salad. This recipe serves 2.


Serves: 2 

  • 4 slices French bread
  • 2 slices of cooked ham
  • 10 thin slices of Comté or gruyere cheese
  • 4 tablespoons Béchamel sauce
  • 75g grated cheese

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Put the rack at mid height.
  2. Butter the 4 slices of bread. Fold each slice of ham to be the same size as the bread, and place one on 2 of the slices of bread. Add 5 slices of cheese on top of the ham. Top with a slice of bread.
  3. In a bowl, mix the béchamel sauce with grated cheese. Spread over each sandwich. Place on a baking tray and cook for 10 minutes until golden brown.
