Garlicky Ham & Cheese Party Sandwiches

Garlicky Ham and Cheese Party Sandwiches. Recipe from The Cottage Mama.

Several months ago my mom had told me about these yummy party sandwiches that she had made and how I should really give them a try. I made up a batch to bring over to my sister-in-law and brother-in-law after they recently had their first baby, along with some other goodies. The sandwiches were delicious! I made these again a few weeks ago and changed up the recipe a bit to suit my husband and my tastes a bit more. So today I’m going to share my recipe for these Garlicky Ham and Cheese Party Sandwiches with you. These are perfect for entertaining a crowd and can be made a day ahead of time (don’t you just love make ahead recipes?)!
