Whether you're looking to put leftover ham to good use or just craving a ham sandwich, you'll find the best sandwich recipes in this collection that features everything from hot ham and cheese, ham and Swiss, subs, paninis and more.
Toasty Grilled Sourdough Clubs, shared by Kristina Franklin of Clarkston, Washington, are filled with deli ham and turkey, bacon and cheese. These hearty nourishing sandwiches appeal to all ages, grill up in just minutes…and are a meal in themselves!
"My Italian husband grew up eating this flavorful sandwich his mother use to make after Saturday chores were finished," Christine Lupella relates from Fifty Lakes, Minnesota. Tip: "This sub can easily be made a few hours ahead and refrigerated, then served with chips, veggies and dip for a delicious meal," remarks Christine.
"My husband and I first sampled this delicious open-faced sandwich at a restaurant," writes Phyllis Smith of Mariposa, California. "It seemed so easy, I duplicated it at home. It's also tasty with cheese sauce in place of hollandaise sauce or asparagus instead of broccoli," she says.
I enjoy watching gourmet cooking shows on television. As a mother of five, I find those time-consuming dishes don't fit my busy schedule. After seeing a chef create a sandwich and cheese sauce on one program, I came up with this quick version. It's been a hit in my house ever since.
These subs are a good year-round—for lunch, dinner or a late-night supper. When it's construction season, Brian may work until sundown. This meal's one that I can serve early to our kids and again later when he gets home.—Nanci Keatley, Salem, Oregon
