  • 12 slices of your favorite bread (consider whole grain for a healthier option)
  • 12 slices of cheese (choose from Swiss, cheddar, or any cheese that melts well)
  • 6 slices of ham (preferably thinly sliced)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 100 ml of milk (any variety will do, even non-dairy)
  • A pinch of salt
  • Optional: butter for greasing the baking dish, and any additional seasonings (like pepper, mustard, or herbs) to taste


  1. Preheat the Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). This ensures your oven is at the right temperature for baking your sandwiches to perfection.
  2. Prepare the Baking Dish: Lightly grease a baking dish with a bit of butter or a non-stick cooking spray. This prevents the sandwiches from sticking and makes clean-up easier.
  3. Assemble the Sandwiches: Lay out 6 slices of bread on a flat surface. Place a slice of cheese on each, followed by a slice of ham. If your ham slices are large, you can fold them to fit the bread. Top the ham with another slice of cheese and then cover with the remaining slices of bread to form sandwiches.
  4. Whisk Eggs and Milk: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and a pinch of salt until well combined. If you’re adding any extra seasonings, whisk them in now.
  5. Dip the Sandwiches: One by one, gently dip both sides of each sandwich in the egg and milk mixture, allowing the bread to soak up some of the liquid without becoming too soggy.
  6. Arrange in Baking Dish: Place the dipped sandwiches in the prepared baking dish. They should fit snugly. Pour any remaining egg mixture over the sandwiches.
  7. Bake: Place the baking dish in the preheated oven. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the sandwiches are golden brown and the cheese has melted beautifully. The exact time might vary depending on your oven, so keep an eye on them.
  8. Serving: Once baked, let the sandwiches sit for a few minutes to cool slightly. This makes them easier to handle and allows the flavors to settle. Cut each sandwich in half if desired, and serve warm.
  9. Enjoy: These Ham and Cheese Baked Sandwiches are best enjoyed fresh from the oven. Pair with a side salad or some fresh fruit for a balanced meal.
