Hot Ham Hoagies

A new year has begun. I am very excited for the new year to come. I have looked back on this last year and it was wonderful!

I have a few goals and dreams that I would like to accomplish this year. How about you??

One of them is to use my camera more.

One of them is to make every day extraordinary.

One of them is to be simple.


And to be honest… one of them is to not eat out as much. I love to eat out… and so I am thinking I am going to fail at this goal. But part of success is learning from your failures, right?!

So… with that in mind, I want to eat out less.

In order for that to happen… I have to cook more!

This is a real struggle.

I can plan my meals ahead of time, but then when it truly comes down to it, it takes preparation, effort, and diligence.

Two days ago… I started this journey. I have been “home” cooking.

I also wanted to use what I had on hand.

I always have on hand… black forest ham. It is one of my favorite staples to have in my fridge.  When I came across this recipe… I was very excited to try it. We did. Our family loved it! I loved it!

These Hot Ham Hoagies is a real simple meal that can be put together quickly. It is easy…it takes less than 1/2 hour to prepare it and place it on the dinner table.


This is how I adapted the recipe…

I used simple deli black forest ham.

I used Sweet ‘n Spicy barbecue Sauce.

I used this dressing… Litehouse Jalapeño Ranch Dressing.

I suggest adding the onions. They made it heavenly. I don’t like tomatoes, but my husband does… so I cut them up for him.

Serve with potato chips, pickles, and or any type of salad. We served ours with a fruit salad.

I have honestly struggled with “making dinner” the last couple of weeks. I also know it was the holidays and it was “easier” to eat out.

I hope to change that within the next 45 days.
