Pan-fried ham and mozzarella sandwiches

serves 2

  • 4 slices of bread
  • butter, enough to butter 4 slices
  • 250 g mozzarella, sliced   
  • 4 slices of ham
  • 8 fresh basil leaves

Preheat your oven to 160 °C. Butter the bread. Put some cheese on every slice. Put 2 slices of ham each on 2 slices of bread. Put basil on top of ham. Cover with the other 2 slices (which also have cheese on them). Butter one outer side of each sandwich. Put sandwiches in a hot pan, buttered side down. Now butter the top as well. Squash the sandwiches a bit with an egg lifter. Turn them over and fry the other sides. Put the sandwiches on a baking tray and put them in the oven for the cheese to finish melting.
