Hot Ham Dips (Au Jus Ham Sandwiches)

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!

½ 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 ½ 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.
