‘This is the best way to use up all those party sandwiches in another bake that is so quick and easy and leaves no waste. I often make sandwiches specifically for this bake and you will find that even young children will come back for more.’
You will need:
An oven proof dish prepared with baking spray, I use 26 cm diameter or similar
Sandwiches, I use ham and cheese (enough to cover bottom of dish)
125ml single cream
125ml greek yoghurt
250g Gruyère or Cheddar cheese, finely grated
a pinch of smoked paprika (optional)
generous grating of nutmeg
Salt and Pepper
Optional: 100g crushed cornflakes.
Lay the prepared sandwiches on the ovenproof dish. Beat the eggs, cream, greek yoghurt, milk and half the cheese, nutmeg, smoked paprika if you are using it and salt and pepper and pour them over the sandwiches. Refrigerate for an hour. Preheat the oven to 180C. Spread the rest of the grated cheese and crushed cornflakes on the top of the soaked sandwiches and bake for 40 minutes until the top is golden. Serve hot or cold.
