We had these sandwiches for lunch yesterday, and we are having them again today. They are SO good! I had some pretzel slider buns leftover from the Kalua Pork and decided to use them up on these Hot Ham Dips.
These sandwiches are a twist on my favorite sandwich, a French Dip. I switched out the roast beef for ham and added some cheddar cheese. I dipped the ham in some beef consommé for the "dip" part of the sandwich. I also brushed the rolls with garlic butter and broiled the cheese. The flavor was fantastic! We both absolutely loved these sandwiches!
This was a simple and delicious lunch and would be great for dinner too!
Hot Ham Dips
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 tsp garlic powder
6 pretzel slider buns or 4 ciabatta rolls, split
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 pound thinly sliced ham
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef consommé or beef broth
1/2 tsp garlic powder
In a small bowl, melt butter in the microwave. Add 1 tsp garlic powder.
Place rolls on a baking sheet; brush cut sides with garlic butter. Sprinkle with cheese. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
In a large saucepan, combine broth consommé and 1/2 tsp garlic powder; bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Place ham into beef consommé and garlic. Heat ham for 30-60 seconds, until slightly warm. Using tongs, place ham on rolls. Serve sandwiches with remaining broth for dipping.
