  • This toasted piccalilli sandwich with ham, cheddar and mozzarella is comfort food at its finest! Ditch your plain and boring sandwiches for this indulgent, rich toasted piccalilli sandwich of dreams. The combination of cheddar and mozzarella gives our piccalilli sandwich the perfect melted, ooze you want from a toasty. We’ve served our piccalilli sandwich with a simple salad but if you want to re-create a comforting pub lunch, serve with a generous bowl of ready salted crisps or thick cut oven chips! Ditch the ham if you want to make this sandwich veggie or experiment with veggie sandwich slices. Lots of supermarkets have started to stock a greater variety of veggie and vegan goods. Our piccalilli sandwich is best served warm while the cheese is still gooey. If you’re kind enough to be making these for friends and family too, keep cooked toasties warm in the oven until they are all ready for serving.


    • 30g cheddar, grated
    • 60g (or half) mozzarella ball, torn into small pieces
    • 3 slices of ham
    • 3tsp chutney
    • 2 slices of sourdough
    • 1tsp butter
    • salad, to serve
    • For the white sauce:
    • 1tbsp butter
    • 1tbsp plain flour
    • 150ml low fat milk
    • 1tbsp piccalilli
    • You will also need:
    • kitchen string


    • Preheat the grill to low. Butter both sides of the slices of bread and spread over 1tsp chutney, pile up a third of the cheeses followed by ham, repeat and top with the remaining slice of bread. Tie 2 pieces of string tightly around the sandwich and in a frying pan over a medium heat the sandwich for 2-3mins on either side, so that the bread begins to brown and the cheese to melt.

    • Meanwhile make the white sauce: In a small pan melt the butter, whisk in the flour until smooth and glossy, over the heat add the milk a little at a time, whisking continuously until thickened. Once thick stir in the piccalilli and spoon onto the top of the sandwich. Grill until patches of the white sauce turn brown.
