You can't eat just one!!! These sandwiches are a favorite at our casual family gatherings ... and they look sooo pretty!!!

Huey attended an event where this type of sandwich was served, and came home raving about them ... so this is MY version!!! He LOVES them, and apparently, so does everyone else!!!!

A fun twist on ham and eggs! I loved both these spreads. The egg salad is creamy and the ham salad has a touch of crunchiness thanks to the celery. The presentation is lovely too thanks to the two different breads. These would be great served at a luncheon or as an appetizer at a holiday party. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Party Ham & Egg Salad Sandwiches

Step-by-Step

  1. HAM SALAD:
    Drain liquid from canned ham, and place into bowl. Separate, and smash with a fork.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, increasing or decreasing mayonnaise to achieve a smooth spreading consistency while remaining stiff enough to not "run".
  3. Refrigerate several hours or overnight to allow the flavors to blend!!!
  4. EGG SALAD:
    Cook eggs with a pinch of salt to hard boiled stage.
  5. Immediately drain hot water, crack eggs, and place in cold water. They should immediately peel with ease.
  6. Using a hand grater, grate the eggs into a bowl, and add remaining ingredients, increasing or decreasing mayonnaise, as necessary to achieve a smooth spreading consistency while remaining stiff enough to not "run".
  7. Cover and place in the refrigerator.
  8. ASSEMBLE SANDWICHES:
    Remove the crusts from the bread.
  9. Spread a thin layer of ham mixture on one slice of bread, and top the ham with a thin layer of egg mixture.
  10. Place another slice of bread on top, lay flat on cutting board, and with an electric knife, diagonally slice the sandwich.
  11. Make half the sandwiches with whole wheat bread and half with white bread, attractively place on platter, and garnish!!!! THE PERFECT PARTY SANDWICH ... that EVERYONE LOVES!!!!
