The Ham Jam (+ Egg Sandwich)



Ingredients:
4 crusty (in a good way) Italian rolls
1 lb (leftover) sliced ham
1/4 cup peach pepper jam (I used the peach-fish pepper jam I canned last year)
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
8 slices smoked provolone
4 hard-boiled eggs, sliced*

Directions:

Slice rolls. Slather jam on one side, mustard on the other. Top the mustard side with cheese then a single layer of egg then ham. Close. Devour.


*best egg slicer ever!



My thoughts:
Sometimes a sandwich is so good, you just have to share it. I've been on a egg kick lately (hard-boiled, sunny-side up, poached) so when I wanted to make a sandwich using some of the insane amount of ham I bought (for only two people!) it was natural to toss an egg into the mix. I used spicy peach jam instead of perhaps the more expected chutney (why do so many sandwiches sport chutney these days?) and my favorite Dijon. The smoked provolone was a whim at the Italian store but it was great, mild but smoky in a way that complemented the ham. The perfect sandwich for someone loves bold flavors but also might have some ham and egg that need to find a home. I can't wait to make another one.
