Toasted Ham and Jarlsberg Sandwich

Toasted Ham and Jarlsberg Sandwich – Make lots of warm and toasty sandwiches at once with this method. Use slider buns to make a big batch sandwich meal.

Do you have some leftover Easter ham? You do? Then you are going to want to make this sandwich. Right now. This sandwich is warm, gooey, and pretty much the yummiest ham sandwich I have ever eaten in my life. Ham, Jarlsberg Cheese, onion and poppy seed spread, on a toasty and warm roll. The flavor combination is so interesting. And delicious. It makes me really happy. I have recently discovered Jarlsberg Cheese, (they are sending me to Camp Blogaway at the end of the week) and I really have fallen in love with this nutty and sweet cheese. It melts like a dream and goes so well with so many things.

I hope that you all had a Happy Easter. We had the best Easter that I can remember. We went to church the night before, and we all slept in on Easter Sunday. I made a huge Easter brunch with Cream Cheese Biscuits, strawberry jam, pancakes, sausage, fruit, and it was delicious. We never even got out of our jammies all day. It was wonderful. I hope that your Easter was as nice as ours was.

  2. Kelley {mountain mama cooks}

    Anything mini is a win in my book and, honestly, you had me at toasted.

    1. bakedbree

      me too. I love small things.

  3. Shelby

    Yummy!

    1. bakedbree

      so yummy. I will not be waiting for Easter ham leftovers to make these again. So easy too.

  4. leslie

    we have these sandwiches every Christmas eve with clam chowder. mmmm. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. bakedbree

      Really? I had no idea that these sandwiches were a “thing”. I have gotten a lot of comments about them being a family recipe.

  5. emily @ the happy home

    a ten-year vegetarian, those photos make a ham sandwich look darn dreamy.

    1. bakedbree

      I don’t want to be the one to convert you! But this is a dreamy sandwich.

  6. Lisa @ Sweet as Sugar Cookies

    All that gooey cheese looks delish. Great sandwich.

    1. bakedbree

      it really was a great sandwich. I have made it a few times since and love it even more.

  7. Jasmine

    Yummy! Those lil sandwiches look so good ๐Ÿ™ I’m hungry! Think i’ll make them for the kids today after school! We’ve got plenty of ham leftover! Got any ideas for the leftover beets? =/

    1. bakedbree

      No, I just love them plain. Sorry! Wait, maybe a mashed beet instead of a mashed potato?

  8. Barbara

    My mother used to make something similar. The kids called them “Grandma’s Sandwiches”. They freeze like a dream. She wrapped them in foil, froze them and then popped them in the oven. A great sandwich to have in the freezer for company.

    1. bakedbree

      I would never think to freeze them… thanks!

  9. Brenna

    Made these last night for dinner with the leftover Easter ham. They were great! Thanks.

    1. bakedbree

      glad you could use some of your leftovers!

  10. Kristin Rogers

    Can’t decide if I like your photos, recipes or words better, but you are a blogging idol of mine! I’ve made a version of these for years and since I hosted Easter too, I’m going to try your version for Saturday lunch this week.

    1. bakedbree

      You are so sweet Kristin! Thank you.

  11. Jarlsberg USA

    What a lovely way to make the most of that Easter ham! It’s also nice that you’ve created something like a grilled cheese sandwich (with the melted, delicious Jarlsberg), but in a healthier way, by baking, rather than frying on a griddle. Seems like these are a crowd pleaser as well as being easy to make. Thanks for including the Jarlsberg and have a fantastic time at Camp Blogaway!

    1. bakedbree

      these are crazy good! Love Jarlsberg!!

  12. Stephanie P

    I made these this weekend. They were a great quick dinner for a long day spent at the beach! I actually served leftover sweet corn pasta with it too! I’m becoming quite obsessed with your recipes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. bakedbree

      That makes me so happy!

  13. Natasha

    I am making these STAT!

    1. bakedbree

      these are yummy.
