Easy Baked Ham Sandwiches
Soon the HOLIDAY dinners will be in full swing.
After dinner, (after you unzip those pants), you will find during clean up that you have a lot of leftovers. What to do? What to do? If you have been to one of my many grocery savings coupon workshops, I spend a lot of time talking about meal planning and eating my favorite “leftover makeovers” as another quick dinner option. These baked ham sandwiches are one of those recipes.
These Baked Ham Sandwiches are a great way to mix up the regular lunch or dinner routine. Especially if you have the leftover ham that needs to be used. The best meal I say is made quick and from leftovers. And of course, you can substitute for deli-style ham if you don’t have any leftovers. Either way, you make it, they will be a delicious lunch or dinner option.
Let’s Get Cooking
If you have leftover dinner rolls, your sandwiches just got turned up a notch (BAMM!!! As Emeril Lagasse would say).
Taking Those Ham Leftovers and Giving Them A Delicious Make-Over
I love any that I can get a good deal on a large quantity of meat. Ham is going to be on sale during holiday seasons, and even if you don’t cook it right away and toss it into your freezer instead, it will be a great way to save money and feed your family multiple meals.
These baked ham sandwiches are super easy and of course, perfect for customizing to your family preferences. I like things a bit spicier than my kids, so adding something like pepper jack cheese slices works for me, where it might not for you.
I serve these sandwiches hot and they fly off the table. So be forewarned.
