Ham and butter sandwiches

When I was growing up, it was normal for people to eat mayo, Miracle Whip or mustard on sandwiches.

As a teen, I visited family in Minnesota. Everyone there put butter on ham sandwiches. I haven't seen that anywhere else.

Are ham and butter sandwiches more common than I realize?

I only like mustard on my ham. However I did grow up eating butter sandwiches or mustard sandwiches.

Isn't buttered sandwiches a fairly common European thing? Maybe not...

I've eaten ham sandwiches baked with butter drizzled on top of the bun.

My children didn't like mayo for a long time. So they had butter on ham, Turkey, salami, and others. Heck my oldest still does. She doesn't like mayo at all.

It is common in Germany. I love butter with prosciutto.

I always butter bread and add mayo for a ham sandwich but not a lot.
