While we certainly don't have these sandwiches every Sunday, I do try to make them a few times every year (especially in the fall). But at our house they're more likely to be served with chips than scallions.
Fried Chipped Ham Sandwiches
1 pound Islay's chip chopped ham, chipped
1/2 large sweet onion, sliced
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Italian bread, sliced into 1 inch (or more) slices
4 slices sharp cheddar cheese
1 - Add the butter and onions to a small saucepan over medium heat - add pepper and stir to combine
2 - Cook onions until softened and golden in color - not quite completely carmelized
3 - While onions are cooking, add ham to large skillet over medium heat. I don't use any butter or oil - the ham will render plenty of fat for the cooking.
4 - Cook ham until it just starts to brown, about 10 minutes, stirring every minute or so
5 - To assemble sandwiches, pile 1/4 ham on top of a slice of bread
6 - Smother ham with 1/4 of the onions and top with a slice of cheddar
7 - Repeat for 3 additional sandwiches
