I’m not really one for sandwiches unless they are homemade and I have packed them full of flavourful ingredients.  Toasted sandwiches are my favourite.  I love when the cheese slowly oozes out and forms strings of cheesy deliciousness as you bite into to the sandwich and pull away.  Toasted sandwiches are really popular and one of my favourites has smoked salmon, mature cheddar and horseradish sauce.  Not only is it full of flavour but, as I use seeded wholemeal bread you get the added goodness of the nutrients from the seeds as well as the fibre from the bread.  The salmon is high in protein and vitamins B and D. Salmon also contains omega 3 fatty acids so has been linked to reducing the risk of heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

There are days that I am rushed off my feet but of course need to eat a healthy and tasty lunch but don’t have much time to prepare one. It’s great to know that in the matter of a few minutes I can have a tasty meal ready to eat.  Here is my quick and simple recipe for my

Horseradish, Cheddar and Smoked Salmon Toasted Sandwich

Serves 1


2 Slices of Wholemeal bread (I used frozen)

2 slices of mature cheddar approx 50g in total

3 slices of smoked salmon

2.5-3 tsp horseradish sauce

A handful of salad leaves as a garnish


Preheat oven to 200 degrees. (Fan oven, 210 degrees for a conventional oven)

Toast the bread at the lowest heat if you are using frozen bread.  If you are using fresh bread skip the toasting part.

Slice the cheese and place this in the centre of the bread.

Fold the salmon slices and place on the bread making sure the whole slice is covered evenly.

Spoon the horseradish sauce onto the slice of bread, spread it evenly and place that slice of the bread sauce down onto the salmon.

Cut the sandwich diagonally and place it onto a foiled baking tray with a space between them to allow the hot air to circulate and the cheese to melt faster.

Cook for approximately 5 minutes or until the cheese starts melting and then remove from the oven and serve.

  1. I do think sandwiches can be so boring, so nice to see a sandwich with a twist. I don’t have salmon often enough so i’m keen to try this x

  2. Now I really wish i had some salmon in my fridge because that would be a perfect lunch for me today! I wouldn’t think to out that together – looks delish.

  3. Oh i love the ingredients you have here but never tried all together. The sandwich looks delicious, I agree i love the yummy runny stringy cheesy bit, yum. I must give this a try x

  4. I have to say these are combinations that I would never usually think of putting together, but it has got my taste buds working and sounds delicious x

  5. I’m not a fan of smoked salmon (I’m funny with textures!) but that toastie looks amazing! My favourite toastie has to be the chicken and bacon one from Costa Coffee… okay, not homemade, but it’s so nice!

  6. This looks really tasty. I don’t really like Horseradish so i’d probably make it without that. Great easy receipe for lunch! xo

  7. Well, you just can’t beat a cheese toast can you? And made all tiger better by adding salmon and horseradish sauce – I would never have thought of this combination so thank you for the inspiration!

  8. Yum! Totally agree that toasting takes sandwiches to a whole new level, and these flavour combinations sound perfect.

  9. I hate horseradish with a vengeance. I can’t understand how anyone could eat it! However, the rest of the ingredients are ones I love, so I would try this without the dreaded ingredient.

  10. I don’t know why I’ve never thought of adding horseradish to smoked salmon. Now that you’ve made me think about it I can see how well they’d go together! Thanks for the inspiration

  11. I have to say your photo made this look really yummy although I’m not at all a salmon person but my husband would love something like this! I never even thought about putting salmon in a a toasty before!

  12. Oh yum! I’d never have thought of making a toastie with salmon! I’ve made it before with tuna though and really enjoyed it xxx

  13. I’m a big fan of a well put together sandwich but I would never have thought of putting cheddar cheese and smoked salmon together … two of my favourite fillings!

  14. Wholemeal bread all the way for me – so much more appealing than white! Homemade sandwiches can fill you up and last all the way through the after – much more nutritious than shop bought too.

  15. Im not a fan of smoked salmon, however this LOOKS so niceeeeeee and has inspired my lunch today. I am going to do it with ham!! Xx

  16. This sounds amazing, I’d love to try it, I’d just leave the horseradish out as im not a fan of it xxx
