• 4 loaves of bread
  • 4 slices of your favourite cheese
  • 4 slices of Serrano ham (or some other kind of smoked ham)
  • 1 teaspoon of pesto
  • Some sundried cherry tomatoes (preferably from Olivier's)




This amazingly tasty toastie is best served smoking hot by a campfire, overlooking a still water and mountains.

We bought our toaster of the internet, from an old woman cleaning out her house. We paid 30 kroners (3 dollars) for the toaster, and in addition she told us stories from when she and her family went out in the woods with it. I love the re-use retro idea, but you can also buy a new one. Either way, it will be your best bud on hiking trips!

Spread one generous teaspoon of pesto on a loaf of bread. Add a preferred amount of sundried cherry tomatoes. Top of with a couple of slices of smoked ham and your favourite cheese. Then cover up with another loaf of bread, and stick it in the toaster to let the campfire do its magic.

Check the toasties after 5 minutes. Serve when the cheese is melted and the bread is just a little bit burned. If you want to spoil yourself: make room for a bottle of red wine in your backpack.

Carrying the toaster is absolutely worth it. Every time!
