Hot ham & cheese buns: these are kind of self explanatory, but here are some simple instructions. You'll need 1 pack hamburger buns (or a batch of the homemade kind), deli or lunchmeat ham slices, cheese slices, butter, your choice of toppings: mustard, mayo, tomato, lettuce, etc. Butter the insides of the buns. Top the bottom half of the bun with a slice of cheese and a slice of ham (ham on top). Wrap in aluminum foil and bake at 200°-250° for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, remove foil, remove top of bun and add toppings.
