Folks, I like sugar. But, I don’t love it! I prefer to spare my sugar to sweeten my tea, if I’m gonna have sugar at all. After all, I am a southern gal! Unlike my daughter who ♥’s and couldn’t live without sugar, I can take it or leave it–no big deal. I am sharing, (what seems to be a pointless topic), with you because I was trying to figure out what to prepare for Boo n I’s Easter meal. I remembered some friends talking about a recipe on Pinterest for these ham sandwiches. Since it was just Boo and I for Easter, I didn’t want to go crazy and make a huge meal. So my menu: funeral sandwiches (
somewhat appropriate), baked potato salad, corn and for dessert- Salty Caramel Coconut Buttercream cake. So, the sandwiches.
It calls for hawaiian rolls- which already are too sweet for me, then the combination of syrup you pour on them, was way too intense. Let me just say that I felt horribly guilty eating this and felt like I would probably suffer a heart attack shortly thereafter. I love food, but I don’t want to die from it. (I know you’re thinking- well you should’ve gone with a healthier menu. And, yes I should have alright? Sometimes we just make the wrong choices). So back to the sandwiches. I also don’t like my food soaked in anything— beit gravy, sauce, or in this case the sugary glaze stuff. If by chance I ever decide to make these again, I will skip the sweet bread, lessen the brown sugar and the mustard. It was just too intense!
As for the cake, I will share my recipe on a seperate post, but to be honest… I’m still in a sugar coma from these sandwiches that I don’t think I want to try the cake anytime soon and it looks delish!
If and when I recover from the sweet sugar fructose coma—I will post more on our Easter feast.
