"This is my mom's take on a sandwich that is served at Steak Escape. She used to make these as a quck mid-week dinner. Can't eat them anymore cuz I'm a veggie, but there's no reason YOU shouldn't enjoy this!"

  1. I love the hambrosia sandwich. This is a great variation for home. Thanks for sharing!
  2. This sandwich has become one of my favorite quick and easy recipes. My family loves them.
  3. I don't know if it's fair for me to rate this recipe because I made mine a lot different than this, but this recipe was definitely the basis for what I did - I would have never had this idea otherwise! I made mine in a tortilla with deli-sliced ham. I warmed up the ham and one of those individually-sized containers of pineapple (drained) in the microwave and then wrapped the ham, pineapple, swiss cheese, mayo, lettuce and tomato up. It was very good! I loved the flavor combination. Thanks for submitting!
  4. nice sandwich if you like hawaiian pizza youll like this
  5. This was a very different sandwich for us. I paired the ham with a good Swiss cheese and served on kaiser rolls. I don't think I drained my pineapple enough because the sandwich had a wet bottom. Next time will do better. ZWT3 Zingo


I've lived in Tucson for about five years now, and the experience has been great for my palate! For those of you that don't know, Tucson is a culinary Mecca; tons of amazing flavors, foods, and restaurants to investigate. The above photo is a picture of my husband and I on our wedding day. He's the light of my life, and the main reason I'm glad I moved out here to the desert because I never would have met him if I hadn't!! To top it off, he's a great eater. It doesn't matter what I make, even if he doesn't like it he tells me between bites. (haha!) He loves my obsession with the Zaar because he's been eating really well since I started with the site. We recently bought our first house which is a starter home that we are working very hard on remodeling. Anyone with free advice for newbie homeowners lemme know because it has been a whirlwind!! I am currently a full time employee at the UofA (GO WILDCATS!) and I love my job and the people that I work with. I am also a part time student seeking a Masters degree in Administration. I can't wait to be finished so that I can relax for a little while, cook, work on my house, and play with my two beautiful children who are pictured below (yes I'm aware that they are dogs, but they are OUR kids!!) The one on the left is our little blue heeler mix that we call Rumplestiltzkin (Bumpy for short) and the one on the left is the sweetest Chow Retriever Mix you'll ever meet. His name is Gaizen. The picture of the two dippy looking people on Segways is one of my husband and I in Disney World this last October. We were soooo lucky to beable to go on the segway tour it was loads of fun! The cutie patutie right beside us is my little niece Rylee who I don't get to see nearly enough since my sister live in Ohio. She's couldn't be sweeter if you spread icing on her. The picture of the cake is one that I made for my DH's 27th birthday because he loves fish tanks. Anyone that wants the ingredients and how to build it lemme know it's really easy!! My Rating System: 5 stars-RUN don't walk to your grocery store, buy the ingredients and make this! 4 stars-Great recipe and I want to try it again but would probably make changes to it 3 stars-Pretty good recipe that I liked but probably will only make occasionally I don't like to give less than three stars because everyone is different and has different taste buds. I also will not give a recipe less than four stars if I myself made changes to the recipe and then didn't like the way it turned out. If I screw a recipe up entirely (I have been known to do this especially with baked goods) I don't bother even rating it. The one thing that is really hard to say here at the Zaar is "I will definitly make this again" not because soooo many recipes that I have tried are not worthy of making again, but because there are so many more out there that I haven't tried yet! Every time I think of repeating one of my favorites I find myself on here about to look it up, and then finding something just as interesting, unique, and delicious sounding that I just have to try!! <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/222/511934835_9dc466e9a4_o.gif"> <a href="http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2615117960101094834lSUnIG"><img src="http://inlinethumb44.webshots.com/3371/2615117960101094834S425x425Q85.jpg" alt="100_0499"></a> <a href="http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2169702170101094834MvnIXR"><img src="http://inlinethumb33.webshots.com/4704/2169702170101094834S425x425Q85.jpg" alt="segways"></a> <a href="http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2370200530101094834irjqOJ"><img src="http://inlinethumb48.webshots.com/2607/2370200530101094834S200x200Q85.jpg" alt="rylee"></a> <a href="http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2499141710101094834tsCHNl"><img src="http://inlinethumb06.webshots.com/4485/2499141710101094834S425x425Q85.jpg" alt="dan's cake"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a209/tlonghorn/banners/BBQ2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a>
