Love ham & cheese sandwiches? 🍞

Try these delicious Grilled Ham and Cheese Pull-Apart Sandwiches that can also be easily compiled and toasted while camping! It’s actually a similar version of our popular Ham & Cheese Party Sliders recipe, except this one is made using a large loaf of bread that you slice and tuck ham and Swiss cheese into.

This idea turns an ordinary ham and cheese sandwich into an easy, mouth-watering, budget-friendly meal or appetizer! 

Grilled Ham & Cheese Pull-Apart Sandwiches

Ham and Cheese fans will love this tasty and unique pull-apart toasted sandwich recipe!

Serves: 6

Prep Time: 15 minutes


Cook Time: 20 minutes



  • 10-12 inch Italian bread loaf
  • 12 slices Swiss cheese
  • 12 slices thinly sliced ham (about 3/4 lb.)
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown or Dijon mustard
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • foil and cooking oil


  • Step 1:

    Place bread on several sheets of foil that have been sprayed with cooking oil.

  • Step 2:

    Using a bread knife, evenly space about 12 slices on the loaf without cutting all the way through it.

  • Step 3:

    In a small bowl, stir together butter, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.

  • Step 4:

    Use a kitchen brush to coat the bread slices with butter mixture, both inside and around the outside of bread.

  • Step 5:

    In between each bread slice, fold and tuck in cheese and ham.

  • Step 6:

    Seal up foil around the loaf and grill on medium heat for about 20 minutes on an outdoor BBQ grill, turning frequently until cheese is melted and bread toasted. (Can also alternatively place by the hot coals of a camp fire, or in a 400 degree indoor oven.)

  • Step 7:

    To serve, open packet carefully to let steam out, then pull apart sandwiches.

Additional Notes

Recipe idea adapted from 

I love how the cheese melts with the buttery mustard mixture to create this fantastic tasting crusty texture. If ham and Swiss cheese isn’t your favorite, easily change up the meat and cheese combo to what your family loves!

These Ham and Cheese Pull-Apart Sandwiches are very easy to make, and taste so YUMMY!

I grilled this while the kids were swimming and they were happy to enjoy them outside as a fun lunch idea. I think they would also be fun for a party or on game day while tail-gating!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
