Ploughman’s Toastie Recipe

Inspired by the British classic, our Ploughman’s Toastie combines the delicious ingredients of the iconic lunchtime dish in the form of a toasted sandwich. With mature cheddar cheese, strong pickle, good quality ham and a sliced pickle on top, this simple sandwich brings back all the best parts of a Ploughman’s lunch, but in a toasted sandwich.

We love using our Dualit Sandwich Cage for this toastie for the perfect crispy coating. This recipe uses Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil which is low in saturated fat and high in Omega 3, making this recipe ideal for a healthy and balanced diet. Simply click here to find your nearest stockist.


Sliced bread
Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil
Grated cheddar cheese
Sliced ham
Sliced gherkin


Brush the outside of your bread with Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil. Spread the pickle on one side of bread, place the ham on top and then the cheese. Top with the other slice of bread, oil side up.

The best toasties are made in sandwich cages, such as those available from our friends at Dualit designed for its range of toasters, to ensure perfectly crunchy bread. Alternatively, if you don’t have a Dualit toaster, you could use a reusable toastie bag.

Toast for 2 minutes. Leave in the toaster for a further minute to melt the cheese. Our method of choice is a nifty Dualit Sandwich Cage, compatible with a selection of its toasters. Thanks to its clever design, your sandwich can be assembled straight onto the cage and popped neatly into the toaster - if you’re worried about filling spilling out during toasting, you may have overfilled it slightly!

Top with a sliced gherkin and enjoy!

The washing up can wait, but don’t forget to unplug your toaster before you sit down to enjoy your toasted sandwich.
