Ultimate Ham Sandwich

Here is a great way to use up all that leftover ham from Easter dinner.  This sandwich is the cover recipe of the April 2011 issue of Food Network Magazine.  It is pretty much your basic sandwich, except for the fact you can make your own Mayonnaise.  I opted to use store-bought Mayo and one of Big Daddy's recipes to spice it up, which is also included in the magazine. 
Ultimate Ham Sandwich

thick slices of crusty white or rye bread
homemade Mayonnaise or Dill Mayonnaise
sliced tomato
thick slices of leftover ham
dill pickle slices
sliced Cheddar cheese
whole grain mustard, opt.

Spread Mayonnaise on a thick slice of crusty bread.  Top with lettuce, sliced tomato, leftover ham, a few dill pickle slices and sliced Cheddar.  Spread whole-grain mustard on another slice of bread, then close the sandwich.  

Dill Mayonnaise
adapted from: Big Daddy
1 c. Mayonnaise
1 Tbl. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbl. chopped dill (I used dried)
2 tsp. minced shallot (I didn't add, but I think it would be really good)
1 tsp. lemon-pepper seasoning
salt and pepper

Combine Mayo with lemon juice, chopped dill, minced shallot and lemon-pepper seasoning.  Season with salt and pepper.  


  1. Yummy! Where did you get your bread?

  2. This post is making me hungry. What a great looking sandwich.

  3. Britt, I got my bread in the gourmet bread section at Walmart. It ended up being sourdough, which wasn't my favorite. I think this would be so good on ciabatta bread!
