Hawaiian Ham Sandwiches Recipe

I've made these sandwiches many times for family and friends, and they've always been a hit. I often get asked for the recipe. The pineapple is what gives them a Hawaiian flair - we think they're a real treat. I have three grown children and enjoy cooking for them and the grandchildren when they come to visit.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 8 submarine or hoagie buns (8 inches)
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese, halved
  • 1/2 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
  • 1/2 medium green pepper, julienned
  • 6 to 8 green onions, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 pound sliced fully cooked ham, julienned
  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • 1. Cut thin slices off tops of rolls. Hollow out bread in the center, leaving 1/4-in. shells; set aside tops and discard hollowed-out bread (or save for another use). Place rolls on a baking sheet; line the inside of each with Swiss cheese.
  • 2. In a large skillet, saute peppers and onions in oil for 3 minutes. Add ham; cook for 3 minutes. Add pineapple. Remove from the heat; drain.
  • 3. Spoon into rolls. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese; return to the oven until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Replace roll tops. Serve immediately. Yield: 8 servings.
