Ham and mushroom toasties

Rich, herby tomato topped with wafer-thin ham, juicy mushrooms and melted mozzarella..... Grab a yourself 'pizza' the action with our Italian-inspired toasties


Serves: 4
Prep time:
Cook time: Ready in about 35 minutes
Syns per serving:  Extra EasyFREE


Low calorie cooking spray
1 small white onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
14oz can chopped tomatoes
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
8 slices of whole-wheat bread from a small 14oz loaf
8 slices wafer thin ham, all visible fat removed
3½oz button mushrooms, thinly sliced
7oz mozzarella, grated
Sea salt and freshly grounded black pepper
A handful of fresh basil, to garnish (optional)


1. Place a small pan sprayed with low calorie cooking spray over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring, until well softened and beginning to brown. Add the garlic, tomatoes and half the dried herbs. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook for 15-18 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is very thick (take care that it doesn't burn).

2. Preheat your broiler to hot. Broil the bread slices on one side, then turn them over and spread with tomato sauce. Top with the ham and mushrooms and spray with low calorie cooking spray. Sprinkle over the mozzarella and the remaining dried herbs. Broil for 3-4 minutes, until the mushrooms have softened and the cheese has melted. Season and serve garnished with the basil, if using.

Tip: Add 6 Syns if not using the whole-wheat bread as a Healthy Extra and 6 Syns if not using the mozzarella as a Healthy Extra.
