Recipe by Ackman

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)


  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.
  6. Serve on buns as you would for Sloppy Joe's.
  7. Top with WI made Swiss Cheese & ENJOY!
