Pan Toasted Bread With Ham, Pineapple and Cheese

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 8 mins

This is called here in The Netherlands a 'pan pizza' now. When I grew up my mother made this for us as a treat and we just called it 'bread from the frying pan'!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. You will need a frying pan with a lid.
  2. Heat frying pan on medium heat, butter the bread on one side.
  3. Put in the pan and butter the side that is up.
  4. When browned turn over the slice and put on first: the ham, then pineapple and then the cheese on the toasted side.
  5. Lower the heat, cover the pan with a lid and cook for a few minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  6. Sprinkle with some paprika powder and serve.

Loved it! Great for a 'kinda' light lunch, and flavors I adore! I used baby swiss and skipped the paprika sprinkling. YUM! I will need to remember this the next time DH says 'grilled cheese?' Made in honor and memory of Pets'R'Us!

Very good. Was a little messy since I used regular sliced bread, thin sliced deli meat, cubed pineapple, and american cheese. But a good, quick way to get a taste similar to hawaiian pizza when I can't get a whole pizza.

Yum! So easy and a great blend of flavors - pineapple and ham is always such a great combo. I used Swiss cheese. Thanks for sharing! Best of 2011 Tag.
