When I've gotten a great deal on sliced deli meats, turkey and ham, I've bought extra and frozen them. They seem to be a tad saltier when I defrost and use them later, but not too bad.


I can't tell you about sandwiches, as we don't eat bread here.

freezing ham sandwiches

Hi!
When my husband and I were first married 14 years ago, I used to freeze ham and mustard sandwiches for him. I'd also freeze ham, cheese and mustard as well as PB&J. They all froze real nice. I didn't try any sandwiches with mayo so I don't know how that would work.

RE: freezing ham

I have had good luck freezing ham, but I only use one brand of ham so it may be that our results would be different.

When it is on sale and when I have a coupon on it, I will purchase a half or even whole (if company is coming) Hormel Cure 81 ham. (This is that terribly expensive one but oh! SO Good!).

Before I leave the meat department, I have the butcher cut it up for me (at no charge) as follows: as many dinner steaks as he can get (or I need) and then the remainder is sandwich sliced. I freeze both types all the time in zippered plastic bags and they defrost real well.

By utilizing both the dinner steaks and the sandwich slices, I can use the former for the entree for dinner(s) and the sandwich slices for sandwiches. (Sandwich slice is thicker than shaved, which just falls apart and I find messy to serve but not nearly thick enough to "stand on its own.") Sandwich slices really offer a lot of meat, especially as the ham narrows to the end and would be small for dinner steaks.

Not wanting to waste anything, I ask for the entire ham to be sliced up as directed and ask them to include the end piece, which is then deposited in another plastic bag and frozen to await a ham and bean dinner.

Never have made ham sandwiches to freeze but sure am going to try this with the next ham I purchase. Wouldn't that just be the height of a "no cook, no hassle" meal?? I love it!!

Re: RE: freezing ham

I never thought of doing this! I have had the butcher grind pork chops into ground pork for me when they were out, but never thought of having them slice a ham :-) Thanks for the tip!

Well I have successfully frozen ham sandwiches for two weeks now and my hubby has yet to complain! And believe me, DH tells me if there is something wrong with his lunch, I have told him to so that I don't waste my time giving him something he doesn't like What's been nice for me is that DH does not like mayo, but he does like mustard and you CAN freeze mustard. So I put ham, American cheese and msutard on a kaiser or onion roll, put it in a sandwich bag and freeze. Then just take it out and put it in his lunch sack!
