Christmas in July Sammie !

Colleen Sowa


Christmas in July? You Bet!!! Typically, we eat ham at Christmas... and the veggies in this sandwich are red and green... thus the name of this sammie....

I created this recipe for Sherri Logan's weekly contest! The two mystery ingredients were: Country Ham and Green Beans.

I think this is a nice way to use left overs..... or just a great new sandwich anytime!
