Anyone for a “Tosta mista”?

Tosta Mista is a signature Portuguese Ham and Cheese melt.
It is very similar to a typical ham and cheese sandwich, with slight
variations in ingredients and the way its made.  Tosta mista consists of
two slices of bread, a slice of cheese and a slice of ham. The bread is lightly
buttered on the outside and toasted like panini. The bread is crisp on the
outside but not hard. The cheese is melted just enough to make it oozy and
the mild cheese blends well with the ham. Try it! You will see why it is so
popular in Portugal!




  • 2 slices of bread (corn bread is ideal)
  • 1 slice of cheese
  • 1 slice of ham
  • butter



  • Place the cheese and ham on one slice of bread. Make a sandwich.
  • Toast for about a minute (or until the bread is crisp, but not hard, and the cheese is melted)
  • Butter the bread lightly and enjoy!
