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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 4 hours YIELD:12 servings


  • 3 pounds thinly sliced deli ham (about 40 slices)
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 12 kaiser rolls, split
  • Additional sweet pickle relish, optional


  • 1. Separate ham slices and place in a 3-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the apple juice, brown sugar, relish, mustard and paprika. Pour over ham.
  • 2. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until heated through. Place three to four slices of ham on each roll. Serve with additional relish if desired. Yield: 12 servings.
