Ham Sandwiches Thu, 03/20/03 6:44 PM (permalink)
The Canale Grocery here in Memphis, TN has the best ham sandwiches I have ever eaten. He gets up early and cooks the hams each day. The sandwich is a plan ham with lettuce, tomato and mayo and it is wonderful. This grocery is on Raleigh La/Grange and Houston Levee Road.

    Glenda's extremely alluring post got me to thinking about ham sandwiches I have known and loved, and I recalled this beauty from the S&S Dugout in Westport, Connecticut. The ham is sliced thin and served hot, with cheese melted into the sandwich if desired. Fortunately, I'm only a short drive from S&S, so I think I know what I'll be having for lunch.

      Have you tried them with 50/50 ketchup?

        Funny roosey...there are limits to what I put it on. Ham (if I eat it) is a mustard item.



        Thou dost consume other condiments besides ketchup?

          This sounds like a 'baked' ham, unless he quickly smokehouse cures them? I'm not all too fond of baked hams, they get too darn salty tasty for me.

            Mel's Diner in Lebanon, PA makes a terrific fried ham and cheese sandwich. They take thin sliced ham, cooked like cheesesteak meat, melt american cheese over it, then add lettuce, tomato and honey mustard. It's delicious.

                My vote for best ham sandwich goes to Anthony's in Ocean City MD. Carved ham packed into a Kaiser roll.

                  Recently I had a grilled ham sandwich with grilled pineapple on it, the ham was sliced paper thin and piled high. The pineapple was grilled till brown and was kind of candied. This was at a restaurant and I loved it. It also had baby swiss cheese in the mix, it helps to hold the sandwich together.

                    For some reason, I just do not like ham sandwiches, UNLESS they are made with Underwood deviled ham spread. I have tried to replicate the recipe, but am always underwhelmed. Can anyone help with a suggestion?

                        Personally I do not like the boiled ham. I sure do enjoy the shoulder slow cooked at about 250 for about six hours covered in orange marmalade and brown sugar. When it gets the glaze and has a sugar tasting crust, sliced very thin, placed on toast with some honey mustard, it is super.

                          Thin sliced Publix Tavern ham & Lorraine swiss cheese on rye with spicy mustard is ok in my book. Don't forget the sour pickle wedge.

                                I'll eat with CETURTL this time. Give me a sliced Ham (Country Ham, Thin-slices, but not shaved) with grilled Pineapple slices and some very mild cheese as the glue, on buttered white bread (WONDER?) then grill it like the plain grilled Cheese would be ...'cept keep it on there long enough to get that Toasted/Grilled appearance.

                                  Nothing better than a fresh fried country ham sandwich. My deceased grandmother use to slice ham right off the cured bone, fry it and make some fresh bisquits. I will always recall the wonderful taste of that.

                                  Each Thanksgiving, Grandpa Smith would always kill hogs and that day would start the curing process of the hams. I have no idea how he did it but I would see them in what he called the smoke house. There would be at least a dozen of them hanging from the ceiling. My blood curdles now but grandma Smith would occasionally cut me off a slice of the cured ham to eat raw. It tasted good at the time but I doubt if I would do it now.

                                          I've tried all the different brands of ham, and still come back to plain old "Deli Ham" as the tastiest. I like Ham sandwiches with mayo, oil and vinegar and oregano, lettuce and tomato and plain "Deli American" cheese.

                                            Echhhh re deviled ham. I ate to much of it on crackers as a child. I like the brown sugar ham from the Liquor Barn deli served on beer bread with tomatoes, onions, lettuce, and spiced mustard.
