Pineapple-Dijon Ham Sandwiches

My kids like ham; the challenge is finding new ways to make it. When I slow-cook it with pineapple and Dijon, the juices make an amazing dipping sauce. —Camille Beckstrand, Layton, Utah

    This combination sounded good, but was a mushy mess of a sandwich. The bread got soggy even though I drained the mixture well and toasted the buns before adding it. The flavor was just ok, and nothing to want seconds of.
