Hot Ham Sandwiches Recipe

I came up with this crowd-pleasing recipe when trying to re-create a favorite sandwich from a restaurant near my hometown. Flavored with sweet relish, these ham sandwiches are oh-so-easy. My family likes them with coleslaw and French fries. —Susan Rehm, Grahamsville, New York
