BBQ Ham Sandwich

A couple weeks ago, my mother told me about something she made all the time when I was a little girl – pan fried apples. I don't know what happened, but I have no memory of these apples. It's like my memory is made of cheesecloth and fried apples just dripped away. I remember telling a pastor that my favorite food was pork and sauerkraut. I remember having cantaloupe and chocolate ice cream for lunch. I remember sneaking fresh chocolate covered cherries while my mom and Old Grandma made them. I also remember hot BBQ ham sandwiches. I think hot BBQ ham sandwiches are a local thing. Joe had never eaten one until I made them one night for supper. He was impressed. You will be impressed, too. BBQ ham sandwich

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Cut the ham. You want to make small squares or rectangles, so I guess it's chopped? Cut the ham into thin strips, then cut the strips into little rectangles.

  2. Heat a big blob of BBQ sauce in large skillet over medium heat. You don't need to put any butter or oil in because the BBQ sauce will prevent the ham from sticking.

  3. Toss the chopped ham into the BBQ sauce and add a bunch more sauce on top.

  4. Stir the sauce and the ham so that the ham is evenly coated. Continue to heat until the whole thing is a bubbly mess of amazing BBQ aroma.

  5. While the ham is heating, butter one side of each piece of bread.

  6. Toast the bread on a griddle. It's probably the lazy way, but I only toast one side of each piece of bread. I figure the side that's inside the sandwich doesn't really need toasting anyway.

  7. Make the sandwiches by stacking a piece of the toasted bread (toasted side down), a slice of cheese, a big spoonful or three of the hot BBQ ham, and another piece of toasted bread (toasted side up).
  8. Cut the sandwiches in half, the triangle way (because triangles taste better than rectangles) and serve with some fruit or veggies and a bowl of potato chowder.
