Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Ham, Cheese & Pesto Toasties.

Like every coeliac I’m always on the lookout for the perfect gluten free sandwich!  My lunch recipe section is bursting with soup recipes so I’m going to try and add in a few good sandwich recipes.   I’ve working on a fancy hot dog, a crab roll and a steak caesar sandwich.

These toasties are stuffed with dairy free cheese, homemade dairy free basil pesto and smoked German ham.  I’ve then dipped them in beaten egg (French Toast style) and then cooked so the outside is crisp and the middle is fully of oozy cheese.
