Hot ‘n’ Hearty Ham Subs

People like the melding of melted cheese, juicy meat and crunchy bread in this main dish. I suggest varying the taste of my sandwiches by occasionally substituting a different cheese—for example, cheddar—for the mozzarella and adding pepperoni for more zest.—Heidi Doudna, Fairbanks, Alaska

    In all fairness, I have not personally tasted this recipe (wasn't fast enough)...but I did bring it to a church potluck where I was told by 2 different families how tasty they were!

    One of my family's favorites. Very easy to change up ingredients for different flavors. I've used chicken in place of the ham and found that to be just as good.
