How to Toast a Sandwich in the Oven

Sandwiches are a common choice for lunches or quick dinners but cold sandwiches can get boring. Toasting a sandwich can be a tasty change. You can toast almost any type of sandwich and serve it warm or hot. Regardless of the type of sandwich you are planning to toast, following a few simple steps will lead to a toasty and flavorful meal.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray to keep the sandwich from sticking.

Step 2

Assemble your sandwich and place it open-faced on the prepared baking sheet. You can include meats, cheeses and condiments that will hold up to heating. Save toppings such as lettuce, tomatoes and other veggies for after you remove your sandwich from the oven.

Step 3

Toast the sandwich in the oven until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown. Ovens vary in temperature and heating time, so you should watch your sandwich closely, checking on it every few minutes.

Step 4

Allow your sandwich to cool slightly before adding additional toppings. Transfer it from the baking sheet to a plate.

Things You'll Need

  • Cooking spray

  • Baking sheet

  • Sandwich

  • Sandwich toppings

  • Plate


If you choose to toast your sandwich completely assembled instead of open-faced, you will need to flip the sandwich halfway through toasting to ensure that both sides are browned.
