{Sandwich Series} 1st Attempt - Hawaiian Ham Sandwich

Saturday, June 28, 2014

Don't get me wrong, it doesn't mean that I haven't tried making one in my entire life, it's just that this is my first attempt to make a sandwich with different ingredients in it. Unlike the usual one-spread-type - cheese, peanut butter, mayo - of sandwich. This time, I'm going to be a bit adventurous.

First step is to have all your sandwich ingredients. 

What I bought:
  • 284 g (10 oz) St. Dalfour Blackcurrant Spread (jam)
  • 500 mL Top Choice All Purpose Dressing (mayo)
  • 222 g Chorizo Pamplona Sausage
  • 180 g Century Tuna - Flakes in Vegetable Oil
  • 250 g King Sue Sliced Hawaiian Ham (approximately 8 slices)
  • 100 g Ram Sweet Pickle Relish 
  • 165 Eden Cheese (I should have bought singles)
  • Eggs
  • Tomatoes
  • Lola Rosa Lettuce
  • Bread

The mayo & jam will be considered as an investment. Why? Because these two will serve as your not-so key ingredient for your sandwich. Plus, it will also go a long way - which means, you could make tons of sandwiches with a bottle of mayo and jam. So it's okay to buy a good brand that will blend well on your sandwiches. Just be mindful of the expiration date. 

The bread is good for 3-5 days. Again, just make sure to check the expiration date.

The rest of the ingredients are good for your 2-week sandwich menu. All you have to do is to plan out your menu first hand before buying what you need for your sandwiches.

If you're on a tight budget, you don't need to buy expensive type of cheese or that big tomato, or gourmet type of meat. Just a dash of imagination, creativity, experimentation, and research will do you good. For me, I have a very good mentor on making sandwiches, right Tracy? Lol!

Of course, before serving it to your hubby or your kid, make a test sandwich - for taste-testing, to know if the combination of your chosen ingredients turns out yummy.

Here's my first sandwich. Enjoy!

Hawaiian Ham Sandwich

1 slice of King Sue Hawaiian Ham
St. Dalfour Blackcurrant Spread
1 medium size Tomato
All-purpose dressing
Lola Rosa Lettuce

1. Cook the ham (don't over-cook) and remove excess oil.
2. Spread a thin layer of mayo and jam, one on each side.
3. Slice and remove seeds of tomato.
4. Wash and drain the lettuce.
5. Put all the ingredients on top of each other.

Estimated cost: Php 35-40 for one Hawaiian Ham Sandwich

The Verdict: Hubby loved it and gave me a warm and tight hug! Lol! He just requested to have a thicker layer of black currant jam on his next sandwich.

'til next sandwich!
