Ham Barbecue Sandwiches Pittsburgh Style

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by UrbanYogaMommy

This is a recipe originally published in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette for a regional favorite using local products, Heinz ketchup and Isaly's chipped ham, although shaved deli ham is a good substitute. This is a quick and easy crowd pleaser that can be doubled or tripled. This is a favorite on football Sundays watching our favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are great fresh or reheated.

This is the one I make! ..but I insist that relish is added!! I add about 1/4 c per 1c of ketschup to give it that 'tang'!
