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!

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 onion, sliced thin
  • bread or roll, of your choice


  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.
  5. Add a slice of onion, or as much as you want. I love making these with vidalia onions, they are so sweet.
  6. Put the top piece of bread or roll on, and serve.

We just had a shower for a friend at work and I made this filling and put in finger rolls. Everyone loved them and went back for seconds and thirds. Good thing I tripled the recipe! I am going to try using a couple of ham steaks, and grind them up next time. I bet they will be good too!

This was absolutely delicious. I used leftover ham as suggested. I also used 1 tbsp honey mustard and 1 tbsp dijon for a bit of extra sweetness.
