Who loves sandwiches or toasts?

I think all people worldwide simply like to enjoy, at least once per week, a sandwich, a burger, a toast, or anything else.

Sandwiches have everything, from the sauce, veggies, meat, and fresh bread.

Ham Pesto Sandwich Recipe A simple sandwich can satisfy a person’s delight and feed more people if you give parties.

I have chosen to make an Italian sandwich that has both mozzarella and pesto, nothing too complicated, on the contrary, such a delicious sandwich that you can make any time of the day all year round.

Sandwiches are always an easy escape for me when my daughter wants something yummy, quick, and satisfying. They are super versatile, and to your liking, this is the point that I like to make and enjoy any kind of sandwich.

Ham Pesto Sandwich Recipe Since I got addicted to the air fryer, my food is done in minutes and eaten in seconds. The air fryer saves my time and effort; this is why I make a lot of recipes in it. This ham pesto sandwich wasn’t an exception; this is why it was so crispy on the outside, juicy, and tender on the inside. A mouthwatering sandwich that you can assemble with any ingredients you have.

I kept it simple: ham, pesto, mozzarella, tomatoes, and bread. You can skip or replace the ham with any other meat, mozzarella with additional cheese, add greenies and quickly enjoy a personalized hearty sandwich.

What kind of cheese goes with pesto?

Pesto has a nutty acidic flavor that pairs great with more cheeses. Mozzarella, cheddar, or other white soft to tender cheese will pair great with pesto. Use slices or shredded.
