Funeral Sandwiches ~ Ham & Cheese Sliders

ham and cheese sandwiches

Bib not included.

First things first: why are these called “funeral sandwiches?” In short, I don’t know, but I’d guess it’s because the only time you wouldn’t feel guilty about stuffing this many lip-smacking nitrates into your face would be after the death of a loved one. Luckily for you, I eat like I’m in mourning all the time, so let’s dig in.

These are somewhat similar to Ham Delights (though that link is not to the Dot-sanctioned recipe), but Morg voted that these are better, and I agree. The brown sugar and smoked salt really punch these up. Plus they’re just the right mix of sloppy and fancy, and that’s the way we do things here at Nummy.

1 pkg (12) Hawaiian buns
1 1/2 pkgs sliced ham
1 pkg sliced Swiss cheese
1 stick butter
3 tbsp Worcestershire
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp bourbon
1.5 tbsp minced onions
1 tsp smoked salt (you can use regular salt here if you need to)
white pepper

  1. Layer a few slices of ham and cheese on each bun and place them in a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  2. Melt together the rest of the ingredients and ladle this mixture over the sandwiches.
  3. Put the sandwiches in the fridge for 24 hours.
  4. When you’re ready to serve, pull the sandwiches out and cut them in half diagonally with a pizza cutter.
  5. Bake uncovered at 350 for 20 minutes.
