I had some leftover Christmas ham that I froze & was thinking of something different to make with it, besides the usual ham loaf, ham salad, etc. I came up with this. Turned out pretty tasty!!! I used the grinder attachment with the coarse grinding plate on our KitchenAid Artisan mixer & then mixed everything with the paddle.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 cups ground ham, pre-cooked (I used Sugardale ham)
  • 1 medium white onion, ground
  • 18 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 14 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 12 cups barbecue sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's hickory & brown sugar)
  • 4 tablespoons water (or pineapple juice, if you have some)
  • 8 hamburger buns
  • 8 slices swiss cheese (or any other WI made cheese)

Directions

  1. Grind the ham, using the coarse grinding plate -- you should have approximately 5 cups.
  2. Grind the onion the same way.
  3. Add the remaing ingredients & mix well, but don't overmix. The amount of barbecue sauce is up to you, depending on how "sloppy" you want the mixture.
  4. Heat in a large skillet over med-high heat, stirring often until heated through.
  5. WATCH CLOSELY SO IT DOESN'T BURN!
  6. Serve on buns as you would for Sloppy Joe's.
  7. Top with WI made Swiss Cheese & ENJOY!
