My dear friend Eva's mother is my mother's dear friend Lucy. I think that made sense. Anyways. Lucy makes a sandwich that has become famous within my circle of friends. You can read about it here and you can gaze upon this gorgeous, mouth-watering photo taken by my other dear friend, Katy.
I will venture to say that it is the perfect sandwich. Easy to produce in large quantities, can be made ahead, great for catering events such as my baby shower (the sandwich on the right)...
Sticky, sweet, savory, sinful. Alliteration.
Lucy's Ham Sandwiches
1 stick of butter
1 T mustard
1 T worcestershire
2 T brown sugar
1 T poppy seeds
Bring butter, mustard, worcestershire, brown sugar and poppy seeds to a boil in a saucepan. Set aside.
Make sandwiches with small buns, ham, and swiss cheese. I use Hawaiian Sweet Rolls because I think they're delicious. Place sandwiches in baking dish.
Pour sauce over the sandwiches. Cover and marinate in fridge for 24 hours or overnight.
Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes covered then 10 minutes uncovered.
I'm eating one right now, getting sticky goo all over my keyboard as I type, and not caring. I love you Lucy.
p.s. Check your teeth for poppy seeds when you're done eating 12 of these.
