Linda's Ham Salad Sandwich (Sandwiches) or Finger Rolls

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Linda's Busy Kitchen

These are a big hit around the holidays when having parties or having baby, graduation and wedding showers! This recipe uses left over ham from a smoked shoulder. The flavor is WONDERFUL, and so GOOD! This is a real treat! My gram always made it for us growing up, as she made us smoked shoulder quite often... I always helped her grind the meat, and that I was the "Big Cheese" getting to do that part LOL... Now I just use my blender, and it works like a charm, as long as you don't overload it. You can use chunks of chopped ham in this recipe, but it's not quite as tasty!

This is the best ham salad that I have ever made!! Using smoked ham really adds the flavor. Super Delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs smoked ham, shoulder cut off the bone into slices or 2 lbs smoked ham, shoulder cut off the bone into chunks or 2 lbs chopped ham, cut into chunks
  • 12 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 2 tablespoons hot dog relish

  1. Grind the ham shoulder with a meat grinder. You can use a blender for this also, just make sure you don't put in too much at a time.
  2. Put ground meat in a bowl and add mayonnaise, mustard, and relish. Mix well.
  3. Chill until ready to make sandwiches or rolls.
  4. When ready to make sandwiches, put a good amount of meat filling on the roll.
