Servings 4 sandwiches


  • 1 pound ham leftover ham or deli ham, either works
  • ½ cup BBQ sauce I'm recently fallen in love with Sweet Baby Ray's, and I mixed the Sweet & Spicy sauce with the Honey BBQ. It was heavenly.
  • 4 sandwich rolls
  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese
  • butter


  • 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.
  • Heat a big blob of BBQ sauce in large skillet over medium heat. Toss the chopped ham into the BBQ sauce and add a bunch more sauce on top. 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.
  • While the ham is heating, butter the cut side of the rolls. Toast them on a griddle.
  • Make the sandwiches by topping the toasted bun with a big spoonful or three of the hot BBQ ham, a slice of cheese, and the top bun.


Serve with potato chips, carrot or cucumber sticks, or a warm bowl of cheesy cauliflower soup or potato chowder.
