Super Sandwiches for Kid's Parties

READY IN: 15mins


  • 8
    slices white bread (very soft sliced bread with the crusts cut off)
  • 8
    slices brown bread (very soft sliced bread with the crusts cut off)
  • butter (tastes better than margarine but make sure you soften it first)
  • ketchup (can use reduced sugar version)
  • mayonnaise (a good quality one with whole eggs)
  • 8
    slices ham (lean, can be smoked)
  • 8
    slices gouda cheese (can use other yellow cheese but please not processed cheese slices!)


  • Generously butter the bread slices and arrange on your bench so that each sandwich has one slice white and one slice brown bread.
  • Spread the mayonnaise on the white buttered bread making sure to get right to the edges of the slice so that the ends don't get dry.
  • Place a slice of cheese over the mayonnaise.
  • Spread ketchup thinly over the brown slice, again making sure you go to the edges and then cover with a slice of ham.
  • Place the two pieces together, then press gently down on a cutting board and slice diagonally twice so that you have 4 triangular pieces.
  • Continue with the other slices until you have 32 pieces which you arrange points facing up on a platter.
  • Cover with cling film and chill for 2-3 hours before needed.
  • Decorate the platter with chips scattered over if you like.
