Sweet Sandwich Ham

So, do you ever just want something simple that doesn't take many ingredients or preparation? Well, it was my Mom's birthday yesterday and I was having a dinner at my house. The plan at first was to bbq burgers outside but that's kinda tough when you're getting rained out, so I chose to make this ham instead. This is a GREAT way to feed a crowd and it's simple and doesn't require a huge arsenal of ingredients. Just throw it all in the crock pot and let it do the work while preparing everything else! I hope you enjoy it like we do....

Sweet Sandwich Ham
adapted by fromcupboardtocupboard from my Mom's cookbook:-)

4 lbs thinly sliced sandwich ham (I go to the deli and get honey ham)

3 c apple juice (I use my bottled applejuice-but anything will do)

1 c packed brown sugar

3 tsp mustard

1 c sweet relish(optional)

Mix the apple juice, brown sugar, and mustard together and pour into the crockpot. Add ham and set crockpot on HIGH setting for a couple hours, then turn to LOW... You can cook it as long as you'd like... I think the longer the better:-) {I don't use the relish because some people don't particularly care for it. But I have it on the table for people to use if they want to}

Serve on rolls!

Happy Cooking!



  1. What a super simple and satisfying way to make ham for a group!! I love the idea of using deli ham, what a time saver!!!

  2. there were 20 adults/kids at the party and I have a big container of it leftover too! And it freezes very well!!!
