Ham & Cheese Buns

Last night, I made these Hot Ham and Cheese Buns. These sandwiches remind me of my childhood. My mom would make these when I was younger. So now every once in a while I like to make these for a nice comfort meal. The sandwiches are good for a night when you are in a hurry and don’t have much time. The filling can be made a head of time and stored in the fridge for a few days.


Now when I went to make these last night, I got out the buns and found this:

Seems like a little fur ball decided to get on the counter and stepped right onto the buns. Just another of the crazy things he will do. Oscar has a mind of his own, he loves sitting in the window sill watching all the little creatures outside, and sitting on the counter, listening to the dishwasher run, and he hates the noise when we put silverware away after its been washed. Oscar is fascinated by water but is like most cats and doesn’t like it on him, he just like watching it. At random times throughout the day he even likes to just start sprinting all over the house. He is quite entertaining. So needless to say, I wasn’t too surprised when I saw the little paw print in the buns. It’s just another day in the life of Oscar.

So back to the sandwiches… These are great for a fall Sunday lunch, sitting around the TV watching football, or on a lazy weeknight when you just don’t feel like making dinner. You can just pop on of these in oven and you have a great sandwich. Pair with some roasted vegetables and it’s an awesome meal!

Hot Ham & Cheese Buns


  • 1 lb. chipped ham
  • ½ lb. Velveeta cheese

  • 1/8 c. white vinegar
  • 1/8 c. sugar
  • Pepper to taste

Put lid on, and pulse a few times until everything is cut into small pieces and mixed together. Try not to pulse too many times or the ham will be in very small pieces. Then mix together the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and pepper to make dressing. The add ham mixture to dressing and stir until combined. Fill the hot dogs buns with a couple spoonfuls of the ham mixture and wrap them in aluminum foil. Bake in oven at 250 degrees until warmed through and bun toasty, about 20 minutes.
