"These are a big hit around the holidays when having parties or having baby, graduation and wedding showers! This recipe uses left over ham from a smoked shoulder. The flavor is WONDERFUL, and so GOOD! This is a real treat! My gram always made it for us growing up, as she made us smoked shoulder quite often... I always helped her grind the meat, and that I was the "Big Cheese" getting to do that part LOL... Now I just use my blender, and it works like a charm, as long as you don't overload it. You can use chunks of chopped ham from the deli in this recipe also."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Grind the ham shoulder with a meat grinder. You can use a blender for this also, just make sure you don't put in too much in at a time. (If making rolls, grind the onions right in with the ham)

Step 2

Put ground meat in a bowl and add mayonnaise, mustard, and relish. Mix well.

Step 3

Chill until ready to make sandwiches or rolls.

Step 4

Making Sandwiches:

Step 5

When ready to make sandwiches, put a good amount of meat filling on the slice of bread.

Step 6

Add a slice of onion, or as much as you want. (I love making these with vidalia onions, they are so sweet).

Step 7

Put the top piece of bread on, and serve.

Step 8

Making Rolls For A Party:

Step 9

Stuff the rolls to your liking. Place on a large serving plate. Cover with plastic wrap. Chill until ready to serve.

We loved these rolls. Even the little ones loved them and they don't like much!

I picked up some rolls to support our local bakery and used the leftover ham from Easter dinner. Chopped it up and made little mini subs. The filling was extra delicious!

Made this up using leftover ham. So delicious with so few ingredients. Another great spread for mini sub rolls!

I made these a few times from leftover ham from Easter. Delicious with potato salad and a dill pickle!

I made these for my cousin's baby shower and they were gone in no time! I love this filling so much that I am going to make it again to have for sandwiches for work. They are great on those little rolls from Market Basket and Hannafords. Everyone at the baby shower loved them and I can see why, they are so yummy!
