This was Germany’s 70/80th party food. I remember when my older sisters had house parties, and these easy toast with ham, pineapple and cheese open faced sandwiches that were baked in the oven were a big hit
These days I still make it occasionally for an easy evening snack or Brotzeit. My daughter introduced her American husband to it, and he loved these exotic open faced sandwiches. You can use Texas toast, instead regular, or bake your own Bread
4 slices of thick Toast (Texas Toast, or the lower side of a Kaiser bun would do)
4 tbsp Butter
4 slices of cooked Ham
4 slices Pineapple
4 slices of melting cheese, like Swiss, white cheddar etc
Cherries or cherry tomatoes for decoration (optional)
