Saturday Sandwich 78: Ham and Mustard

A simple classic this week and one that we've eaten plenty of times before. We usually have regular sliced ham and this time it's ham from a roast ham joint.

Ingredients: ham joint, mustard, bread rolls and brown sugar.

Mix together mustard and brown sugar and rub it all over the ham joint. Roast the ham in the oven until it's falling apart (about 3-4 hours). Fill a bread bun with pieces of ham and add mustard to your taste.



JD and I picked at bits of the ham as we were making the sandwich. It was hard not to because it was hot out of the oven, smelled deliciously of sweet mustard and had the most fantastic soft texture. The minute we put it in a bread bun the magic disappeared and we were left with a ham sandwich without much taste. I don't know what happened but this sandwich just wasn't that great. Ham and mustard is a classic combination that works well but the ham just lost it's mojo for us this time. We'd have enjoyed the ham more stood up in the kitchen picking it off the joint and dipping it in the cooking juices. Still, it wasn't a terrible sandwich and I did enjoy the soft bread roll with the soft chewy ham inside.
