The Ultimate Leftover Ham Sandwich * Christmas/Easter *

“Another family fav using holiday leftovers. There are variations depending on preferences(for instance DH won't eat mustard or mayo - I know weird, huh?) but I am posting the full nine yards and the way I like it. Adjust according to your tastes, but try it this way if you can, it is DA BOMB! ** I have used mashed potatoes in place of the stuffing when we ran out of stuffing....still good. ***NOTE- I use my Drunken Apples - Like Famous Dave's not pie filling.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -3 slices honey-baked ham, as much as desired
  • 2 slices bread (I prefer a wheat and grain like Poulsbo for this)
  • mayonnaise, to taste (optional)
  • mustard, to taste
  • cream cheese, to taste
  • 2 -3 ounces apple pie filling, to taste (Drunken Apples - Like Famous Dave's is my preference or applesauce could be subbed if you have no sliced baked apples)
  • 2 -3 ounces baked beans, to taste (lightly smashed so they stay on if desired, Dad's recipe preferred)
  • 1 -2 slice cheddar cheese
  • 2 -3 slices tomatoes
  • 2 leaves romaine lettuce (or preferred lettuce as desired) (optional)
  • 2 -3 ounces mashed potatoes, to taste
  • 2 -3 tablespoons ham gravy, to moisten potatoes if desired (optional)


  1. On one slice of bread mix a bit of mayo (if used) and mustard to lightly cover bread.
  2. Layer ham, baked beans, cheddar, mashed potatoes and spoon desired amount of gravy (if desired to moisten) then spoon a small amount of cinnamon apples on top (although order isn't terribly important).
  3. Top with tomato and lettuce.
  4. Spread cream cheese on final piece of bread.
  5. Enjoy (grab a napkin and maybe a fork in case it gets messy!) ;).
