We love these sandwiches.
The first time I made them, but husband said, “Wow this tastes just like it came from a really nice deli. ” And he was curious what exactly I did.
And then we went on to eat the whole batch I made. Yes, you can say we loved this and I loved how easy it was.
I was not really sure what to call this recipe today. It is hot ham sandwiches that you cook in the crock pot, but you don’t cook the whole sandwich in the crock pot, only the filling part.
Since you cook the majority of this in the crock pot though, I decided to call them crock pot ham sandwiches.
I used a thinly sliced pre packaged small ham I bought, but you could easily use a deli type sliced ham, or I think even leftover ham from a holiday meal. Really, any type of ham should work for this.
