This is a modern, French-inspired version of the classic English tea-time favourite of cheese on toast. The homemade garlic butter and the baguettes give this dish a little continental ooh la la, and the cheese and ham makes a delicious topping. This will help line your stomach before you go out on the town with your mates, or is a lovely simple supper to have on the sofa in front of the TV.

Ingredients

  • 50g butter, softened
  • 1 large clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2tbsp freshly chopped parsley
  • 2 bake at home white baguettes
  • 100g sliced cooked ham, cubed
  • 150g Cheddar cheese, grated
  • Extra freshly chopped parsley to garnish

Method

  • To make the garlic butter, beat together the butter, garlic and parsley and keep at room temperature while cooking the baguettes.

  • Cook the baguettes according to instructions (usually 10-12 mins at 200°C/400°F/180°C Fan/Gas Mark 6). Remove from the oven and cut in half horizontally. Put each half on a roasting tin and spread with garlic butter. Sprinkle the ham and cheese evenly over the baguettes and bake for a further 10 mins or until the cheese is bubbling and starting to turn golden.

  • Serve garnished with freshly chopped parsley.

Top Tip

It’s worth keeping a few bake at home baguettes in the freezer as it means you always have “fresh” bread to hand.
