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.
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
“I'm a busy wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who loves to cook,” writes Janet Miller from her home in Midland, Texas. “This warm hearty sandwich is a convenient way for me to serve a complete meal that tastes great.”
"My husband loves this zippy sub sandwich," writes Kathy Bennett of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Italian sausage, pepperoni and salami provide the robust flavors in this family-pleasing fare. If you'd like, serve the crispy subs with extra pizza sauce for dipping.
Grab hold of breakfast time by serving these warm, energy-boosting sandwiches. The hearty helping of protein will help keep hunger at bay, and they travel well for hectic mornings. —Lacie Griffin, Austin, Texas
Using a bread other than the expected white loaf is key to these crowd-pleasers. Thankfully, my local market in mid-Missouri carries kalamata olive bread. If you are unable to locate it, herbed Italian bread will work. —Amy Dodson, Columbia, Missouri
My kids like ham, but it's a challenge to come up with different ways to prepare it. I’m all about the ham and pineapple combo, so I decided to throw it in the slow cooker and see what happened. Amazing. Even my two youngest ones (ages 1 and 4) ate their sandwiches right up. —Camille Beckstrand, Layton, Utah
