They called it The Hawaiian and it was delish! I had to re-create this sammy! And, I have to say, I liked it even better at home! (My grandma would have LOVED it!!!)
You have to start out by making pineapple cream cheese. The already made kind at the store WILL. NOT. DO!! :)
All you need is 8 0z. of softened cream cheese and a 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple, drained. I use my Kitchen-Aid mixer and whip the cream cheese and then add the pineapple. Easy and yummy!! (You HAVE to try this with chips!! I'm not even kidding!!)
Next, toast 2 pieces of bread. They used potato bread, all I had at this time was wheat and it worked, too. I prefer to do this with butter on a griddle instead of a toaster, (you know everything is better with butter, just ask Paula Deen!).
Spread both pieces of bread with your pineapple cream cheese and then layer ham, lettuce, tomato and purple onion. Eat up!!
Now go make this sandwich, you won't regret it!!
Note: I made this again for lunch yesterday and put it on a croissant and it was awesome!
