Lunch with Philadelphia: Simple Cheesy Ham Sandwich

Lunch with Philadelphia: Simple Cheesy Ham Sandwich

In my previous life I used to spend lots and lots of hours sitting on a chair in a front of my computer at work. Most days I even forgot to drink water or eat as I was so busy!

In my previous life, I used to hate warming and preparing my lunch at work.  But that was before I discovered Philadelphia cream cheese. Then my life became easier . I don’t like using butter in my sandwiches but love this cream cheese! I always buy the low fat variety because although I am addicted to cheese I need to watch my waistline.

I have a couple of suggestions for you but for today here is my favourite sandwich of all time (my girls and my husband favourite too):

And as you can imagine the recipe is very simple too:

Simple Cheesy Ham Sandwich

1 slice of wholemeal bread


A couple of thin slices of cheddar

1 slice of chicken ham

1 leaf of lettuce

  • Take one slice of wholemeal and spread as much Philadelphia cream cheese as you wish. I like a lot! Cut the slice in two.
  • On one of the slices lay the cheese, then the lettuce and last the ham.
  • Cover with the other half slice.
  • Put it on the plate and enjoy!

Simple! I love eating it while drinking some yoghurt – it goes better down the throat.

My girls enjoy it while drinking some warm milk while my husband loves drinking a big glass full of ice and cola.

    I have never tried Philadelphia, I don’t like those horrible soft cheese triangles you can buy so I’m not sure if I’d like Philadelphia but your Simple Cheesy Ham Sandwich looks amazing (adds to shopping list)

    Love Philadelphia, I add some to pasta sauce sometimes if it tastes too harsh.

    I do what Amanda says, I also love it on celery, or with marmite on toast 🙂

    Yummy! Never understand how you can go all day and “forget” to eat! I’m one of those women who dreams of food! Big fan of Philly – my kids love the garlic one as a pasta sauce! x

    I love smoked salmon and cream cheese and I also have to admit that I use Philadelphia in frosting on cupcakes 🙂

    I LOVE Philadelphia; perfect with smoked salmon either in a sandwich or with pasta

    So simple, but still the best way to eat it! Although I do love to mix it into pasta.

    That does look tasty. i tend to buy the other cheese spread as the children prefer it – I might just get Philadelphia for me this weekend after reading this!
