As a little girl growing up outside of Pittsburgh, one of my favorite treats was going to a restaurant on the other side of town that had the best ham barbecue sandwiches ever.  This is my version.

1 package freshly baked rolls (we actually doubled this because of our family size and the rolls were BOGO)

1 package ham (I used a Smithfield product that was also on BOGO sale)


Barbecue sauce (homemade or bottled – we used Heinz)

2 Tbsp. minced garlic

1 Tbsp. Lawry’s Tuscan Sun Dried Tomato Marinade (or anything spicy to give it some zing)

Lawry's Tuscan Sun Dried Marinade Heinz Barbecue Sauce

1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar (to thin the sauce)

Mix sauce, garlic, marinade and vinegar.  Place in a shallow dish for dipping meat.

Dip ham into barbecue sauce to coat well,


and heat in a couple large skillets over medium heat.

Serve on lightly toasted rolls topped with relish.
