Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches are great for dinner or lunch and are freezer friendly.
Baked ham and cheese sandwiches are a family favorite from when I was a kid. We called them Ham on Bun. I figured I’d give these a slightly more refined name to share with you; Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches! Whatever you call them, they are delicious. I mean, what’s not to love? Hot slices of ham…..melted cheese….and a buttery sauce slathered onto a bun!
My recipe is for eight sandwiches. When I make these, I usually make 24 sandwiches and throw a bunch in the freezer.
They are perfect for quick dinners or for lunches. I often throw one in my lunch box when I need a quick sandwich.
Any type of ham works for these sandwiches. My mom likes to use a Honey Baked Ham with the thicker spiral cut pieces. I like thinner ham and I usually buy a boneless ham at Costco and slice it up at home.
It’s so much cheaper than buying from the deli. I package up the remaining ham and freeze it in smaller portions to pull out when needed.
I do the same thing with a block of swiss cheese. You can buy pre-sliced cheese and you can also use your favorite type of cheese. I often use my homemade hamburger buns for these sandwiches.
