"Quick and easy supper! My family loved the sauce that topped the sandwiches. Since I am not that big on mustard, I substituted about 1/2 tsp. of dry mustard that offered a milder flavor. I also left out the poppy seeds and decreased the amount of sugar. I did not have colby cheese on hand so I substituted sharp cheddar which worked out fine. The whole pan was eaten, as well as the oven-fried potato wedges that I served with them. This is a nice way to use up leftover deli ham."

"This was a very interesting recipe. Adding the sugar to the mustard (I used spicy brown) added an interesting touch. We all liked it and it was easier for a group than grilled ham and cheese."
