I love a good ham sandwich! And these baked ham sandwiches remind me of church ladies, finger food buffets, awesome pink punch, and baby showers. Baked Honey Mustard Ham Sandwiches are a southern picnic favorite.
Not long ago I catered a baby shower for a friend – a sweet, beautiful, wonderful friend that that is going to have a sweet, beautiful wonderful baby girl!
Truth be told, I am no kind of baby shower pro. I was pretty well flying by the seat of my pants with this one.
So I did what all people should do when they need to know something about somebody: I raided her Pinterest boards. Pinterest boards will instantly tell you what a person likes or wants or needs. Because we all need an infinity pool and an awesome door that leads to a playhouse under the stairs.
You can totally look at my Pinterest boards and see when I want chocolate or when the color blue is talking to me. Some days I’ll pin all the things covered in bacon and cheese. Okay most days.
And some days I like healthy recipes. Kind of.
Sorting through my friend’s pinned recipes pointed me in the right direction. And more than once that direction was ham sandwiches on sweet Hawaiian-style rolls.
These sandwiches remind me of the finger-food buffets hosted by our church when I was a kid. Some cute little lady always made a pile of ham sandwiches on Hawaiian rolls and I would snatch one every time. But cute little church ladies like to use yellow mustard. I have a secret: I hate yellow mustard. Passionately. Ew.
I loooove Dijon honey mustard though. Especially when I make it myself. So I took the church lady ham sandwiches and just sort of tweaked them into fancy (okay not fancy) good-enough-for-my-gorgeous-friend’s-baby-shower sandwiches. Yellow mustard: step aside.
And hey! How perfect are these for Thanksgiving or Easter ham leftovers?! Just saying.
This is a pile of sandwiches I can 100% get down with.
