Listen up if you love melted cheesy sandwiches! 🍞
Try these delicious grilled ham and cheese pull-apart sandwiches that can be easily compiled and toasted using foil while camping! It’s another sandwich hack, similar to our ham & cheese party sliders recipe, except this one is made using an inexpensive loaf of French bread that you slice and tuck ham and Swiss cheese into.
The result is a batch of cheesy melted sandwiches with buttery toasted bread. Honestly, it’s amazing how something so simple can taste so delish!
This stuffed ham and cheese loaf is a mouth-watering, budget-friendly meal or appetizer!
Steal this idea and use it for entertaining friends at home or even take it along with you on your next camping adventure. Or consider making it for a unique football-watching dish this season.
This is such a versatile concept, too. I was thinking maybe a pizza one with sauce, cheese, and pepperoni would taste great. Or just swap out any other meat and cheese combo your family loves!

Ham and Cheese fans will love this tasty and unique pull-apart toasted sandwich recipe!
Heat the grill to medium heat. Place the bread loaf on several sheets of foil that have been sprayed with cooking oil.
Using a bread knife, cut evenly spaced slices (about 12) on the loaf without cutting all the way through it.
In a small bowl, stir together butter, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.
Use a kitchen brush to coat the bread slices with butter mixture, both inside and around the outside of bread.
In between every other bread slice, fold and tuck in cheese and ham. You'll be creating 6 sandwiches.
Add a top layer of foil and seal the sides, leaving room for steam around the loaf. Grill on medium heat for about 20-25 minutes on an outdoor grill, until cheese is melted and bread toasted. You can also alternatively place by the hot coals of a campfire, or in a 350-degree indoor oven instead.
Remove the top layer of foil at the end to further toast the bread during the last few minutes. To serve, pull apart sandwiches and enjoy!

Hip tips for making grilled ham and cheese sandwiches:
- Want to melt this indoors? It can be baked in foil using your indoor oven instead. Heat the oven to 350 degrees and melt it for 20-25 minutes or until toasted. Remove the top layer of foil at the end to toast the bread during the last few minutes.
- For a larger crowd, consider making a few of these at a time! There is room on the grill, and maybe even switch up the type of meat and cheeses.
- If you do have leftovers, store them in the fridge and reheat them in the air fryer! I did this and it was way yum. 😋
These Grilled 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 love how the cheese melts with the buttery mustard mixture to create this fantastic tasting crusty texture.

Can’t wait to try this out! Thanks for the wonderful idea! 😁
Sure- enjoy Jessica!
Love these camping food posts! Thank you Lina! We did your foil packets last time and I was the family hero! Can’t wait to try this guy out.
That’s so great!
My mom has been making these forever- we call them poker sandwiches. She uses foil sheets to wrap individual rolls, and you can heat up one or two or all of them as needed. My mouth is watering looking at the pictures- it’s such a delicious combination. Extra cheese is always the best. Try adding bread and butter pickles too.
YES to the pickles – sounds yummy! Thanks Julie 🙂
These sound so yummy! Thank you!
Oh you’re so welcome 👍
Can this be made ahead of time?
Yes, you can compile it maybe earlier in the day and then grill it when ready!
We make this in the oven and it’s yummy!! It’s the best with melted butter and everything bagel seasoning on top.
Oh love that idea! Thanks Lindsay!
I have tried the recipe for Easy Grilled Ham and Cheese Pull-Apart Sandwiches with ghee instead of using butter. Ghee butter is a safer oil than other butter or olive oil, etc. I love ghee’s flavor and ghee’s food safety.
