Sweet & Spicy Post-Easter Ham Sandwich

Sweet and Spicy Ham Sandwich

I love Easter dinner…but I might love Easter leftovers even more!

Yesterday we slow-smoked a beauty of a ham in our Traeger, and finished it with an orange/maple glaze.

Turns out I was right. Sweet, hot, salty, and savory…this sandwich has it all.

Cabot Hot Habanero Cheddar adds just the right amount of fire to wake up your taste-buds and balance the sweetness of the marmalade.
