Ham barbecue sandwich an express-lane special

Thursday, July 08, 1999

Here's a really quick recipe for barbecued chipped ham sandwiches. The recipe was given to me many years ago by an aunt. We've enjoyed it ever since," writes Phyllis Hajos of Oakdale.

An avid recipe collector, Hajos explains, "This recipe is the quickest in my collection."

And it's hard to imagine anything quicker. Four ingredients, one measuring cup, a saucepan and a spoon. Splat, fizz, plop and stir and in 10 minutes flat you have ham barbecue sandwiches with a pronounced Pittsburgh accent.

Hajos' recipe for Barbecued Chipped Ham Sandwich brings together Heinz ketchup, Coca-Cola ("It has to be Classic," Hajos says)and Isaly's chopped ham in a sweet 'n' sloppy sandwich filling that will make a meal with a side of chips and fresh fruit. Serve it on a Pittsburgh-baked bun and savor your civic pride. With or without pickles.

If you like your ham barbecue sauce a little less drippy, leave it on the stove a bit longer to boil down a bit, giving it an occasional stir. -- Tested by Betsy Kline
