Your trusty slow cooker lets you make these warm, gooey sandwiches without heating up the house on a hot day. The mustard and brown sugar give them a richness everybody loves. —Nancy Foust, Stoneboro, Pennsylvania

"A tasty alternative to a traditional ham sandwich! The pineapple mixture has a good balance of sweet and savory and someone who really likes sweet/salty combos would likely enjoy this. The sauce could be served on the side for dipping. This makes enough for a family of five with leftovers. Next time, I will likely try it with thicker ham slices."

"This had good flavor but I think it would be better using a thicker cut ham."

"Wonderful recipe--my husband doesn't like Swiss cheese, but agreed that everything works together in these sandwiches to result in a very tasty treat. My local grocery store had high-quality deli ham on sale for $3.99 a pound, and I am so glad I remembered this recipe and took advantage of that sale. It was easy to put together and a great meal for a hot day since it utilizes the crockpot. I will definitely be making this recipe again."
