Ham hock, cheddar and apple & walnut chutney toastie


Nothing like a toastie to warm the cockles on a cold, wet Autumn afternoon.


Serves four

180g ham hock

100g cheddar (strength 8), sliced

4 tbsp apple & walnut chutney

Handful of watercress

2 tsp English mustard


8 slices of farmhouse white

To address my immediate hunger, I've used pre-cooked ham hock from Waitrose. Of course, if you've got the time it certainly pays off to cook your own. Jamie Oliver has a pretty great jerky ham hock recipe which adds a whole other level to this sarny.

Heat up your sandwich toaster and butter one side of each slice of bread.

Flip the bread over so the unbuttered sides are facing upward. Spread about half a teaspoon of English mustard on half of the slices and 1 tablespoon of chutney on the other half.

Divide the ham hock, cheddar and watercress between the sarnies and close up, ensuring the buttered sides are on the outside.

Once your toaster is ready, pop in the sarnies and cook until the bread is golden and the cheese is oozing out. If you don't have a sandwich toaster, you can also fry them.

Be sure to check back next Sunday for your weekly sandwich fix.
