How to Make Crock Pot Ham Sandwiches?

The great thing about these sandwiches is you need simple basic ingredients. Nothing complicated that you can easily find at the store. If you have followed our site for any amount of time, you know that we love to cook with common ingredients. You won’t be searching the grocery store for some ingredients you have never heard of or only plan to use one time.

Ingredients needed:

  • Ketchup
  • Onion
  • Green Bell Pepper
  • Brown Sugar
  • Lemon Juice
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Yellow Mustard
  • Liquid Smoke
  • Sliced Deli Ham

What type of Ham did you use?

We used Brown Sugar ham because we like the sweetness of it, but honestly, any deli ham will work. We got it sliced on the thinner side as well, and these sandwiches turned out so good. You could easily use sliced or spiral ham too, which is wonderful if you have leftovers from the holidays.


How long do you cook the ham in the crock pot? 

If you are using the thinly sliced deli ham, we cook it for about 2-3 hours on low. You really want the ham to marry with the other ingredients so it can get that wonderful flavor. If you are using spiral or sliced ham, you will probably want to let it cook for about 4 hours on low.

I found that the ham reheats really well the next day, so you can easily enjoy leftovers. This makes about four sandwiches, so you can simply double it for a large crowd.
