Lucy's Ham Sandwiches

3/24/10

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
Small buns
Ham
Swiss cheese


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.

Hmm, any sort of salad would be great. Sweet potato fries?? Roasted vegetables. I can't think straight, I just ate 3 and a half...

I made these for a Superbowl party after reading about them in Katy's blog and they totally satisfy every craving you could have at once. Plus, they are easy. They all vanished before the game was over. Did I mention it was a Superbowl party of two...?

I am famous for these in my neighborhood. My mother shared this recipe with my over 20 years ago..... A classic that kids love and men devour!

do they have to marinate over night?

Siri said...

Breanna - it's not necessary, but it makes them even tastier! However long you can marinate them will suffice.

This sounds good! :) What could I substitute for poppy seeds? Hubby can't eat them.

I have made these many times and they always DISAPPEAR! I'm making four dozen for a baby shower on Saturday. Everyone asks for the recipe! I use hot ham and cheddar cheese but the possibilities are endless. One time I used hot ham, sandwich pepperoni and hard salami. Wish u had one right now ��
