The Perfect Leftover Ham Sandwich

The Perfect Leftover Ham Sandwich | Fork Knife Swoon

When I decided to cook a half-spiral ham for just the Honey and me on Easter, I expected there to be a mountain of scrumptious leftovers. I did not anticipate using the entire rest of the ham to make these out-of-this-world Ham and Swiss Sandwiches. However, mysterious things happen in the kitchen, and these sandwiches definitely happened. Three or four times. With thick, spiral-cut ham slices, melted Swiss cheese, a good slather of mustard and a healthy dollop of strawberry jam, these indulgent sandwiches have officially become our favorite way to use up leftover ham.

The Perfect Leftover Ham Sandwich Recipe.
Recipe by:
Yield: 2 Sandwiches
  • 2 ciabatta rolls, or 4 slices of sourdough sandwich bread
  • 4-6 slices, cooked spiral ham
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp strawberry preserves
  1. Lightly toast the bread. Spread the mustard and mayonnaise on to the bottom slice of the bread and layer with the ham and cheese.
  2. Toast open-faced in a toaster oven at 400 degrees for 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted. Watch the oven carefully so as not to burn the sandwiches.
  3. Meanwhile, spread the preserves on the top pieces of bread. Remove the sandwiches from the toaster oven and top with the remaining slices of bread. Serve immediately.
