Barbecued Ham Sandwiches

Sorry no picture because sadly after making them I thought there would be no way we'd like these sandwiches. I was wrong. These are very tasty and easy and quick to make. Great dinner or lunch option on a busy day. I'm not kidding it took about 8 minutes from start to finish for dinner for 5 people. A few changes I'd make on the recipe: use shaved deli ham. I used some leftover spiral cut ham and it was thicker than I thought it should be. Second I used bottled bbq sauce, shocker I know, but this would be so good with a simple homemade bbq sauce. I think I'm going to make this again next week for lunch and try shaved deli ham and a bottle of my homemade bbq sauce. I also used store bought coleslaw, again I know it goes against my values, but I couldn't find cabbage at a decent price. I think a homemade coleslaw along with all my other changes would make this an even better dish. I found the recipe in Taste of Homes Simple and Delicious Sept/Oct 2008 issue.

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3/4 lb fully cooked ham, thinly sliced
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup deli coleslaw
8 sliced bread

In a small bowl, combine the butter, mustard, thyme, parsley, garlic and pepper; set aside.

In a large saucepan, cook ham and barbecue sauce over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until heated through.

Place ham and coleslaw on four bread slices; top with remaining bread. Spread outsides of sandwiches with butter mixture. In a large skillet, toast sandwiches for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

  1. Home made coleslaw will absolutely dress up this dish. I've made it before and I know you won't be disappointed.

    Thanks for sharing...

    BTW, the Fully Loaded Chili is another hearty dish! It looks wonderful!
