i appreciate the feedback, but no, this isnt the same thing---the sandwich mix i am talking about has ham, bologna, or lunch meat, and cheese and is mixed the meat is ground up like a ham salad mixture, and you add relish or chopped celery, pickles, maybe even onion if you like and mix it all up with mayonnaise. it is then spread onto the sandwich bread. i have seen the recipe you included, using the kings rolls and it does sound great.

wow.. I was just telling someone about these sandwiches. They are comfort food when you are sick but back on solid food. We ate them on white bread with kraft american cheese slice. now I eat them on whole wheat with low fat cheese but I still love them when I am sick or just blue.
I could never find a recipe to enter it in the system. Thanks!

I found a couple different recipes. The last one sounds closest to what you describe. This sounds like what may also be called Ham Salad:
Funeral sandwiches 24 servings Spray Pan with Pam (like to use two- aluminum throw away pans for easy clean up) 1.5 lb Ham deli or thin- sliced .5 lb Lorraine Swiss Cheese (any Swiss is good though) 24 dollar buns whole wheat or white Glaze 2 sticks Butter 4 Tbsp Brown Sugar 2Tbsp Worcestershire sauce 2Tbsp Mustard (not dry) 2 Tbsp Poppy seeds Assemble Ham and Cheese inside each bun. Marinade with sauce and cover. Marinade no less than 4 hours and up to overnight. Bake at 450 degrees Covered for 25 minutes.
Funeral Sandwiches 1 lb. chipped ham (or, buy a package of lunchmeat ham and chop it yourself).
½ cup ketchup
1 T. vinegar
3 T. brown sugar
1 onion, chopped
Mix ingredients together well in a roasting pan. Bake at 300 degrees for one hour, stirring occasionally. Serve on hamburger buns. These were nicknamed Funeral Sandwiches by Jim’s family because they were often served to the bereaved family after the funeral, along with jello salads.
Funeral Sandwiches 1 package of King's Hawaiian Rolls 1/2-1 lb. good ham deli meat Swiss cheese, thinly sliced 1/2 c. butter, melted 3 T. worcheshire sauce 2 T. mustard 2 T. brown sugar dash of onion powder
Cut the rolls in half and line the bottom of a baking pan with the bottoms of the rolls. Layer the ham slices, then cheese and place the top half back on. Mix together the butter, worcheshire, mustard, brown sugar and onion powder. Pour the whole works over the buns, drenching each one. Cover tightly and marinade anywhere from 4-24 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bun tops are a bit golden.
Funeral Sandwiches 2 cups chopped cooked ham a slice of onion, or a green onion, if wanted 1/3 cup mayonnaise, light is fine 1/3 cup green cucumber relish 1 teaspoon mustard or horseradish
Put the ham into a food processor, with the onion slice or chopped green onion if desired, and process briefly, until finely chopped. Turn it into a bowl and mix with the remaining ingredients.
Use as a sandwich filling, or to stuff mushroom caps as an hors d'oeuvre.

First, those sandwiches sound totally delicious. Second, I'd suggest trying to put into your SparkPeople log each of the ingredients and creating a grouping. Then you can just select the grouping and have it done with (though I'm hoping you don't go to funerals enough to warrant it!).

i had been trying to find a recipe or the calorie content for a type of sandwich mix, that is really popular around here. we call them funeral sandwiches, as alot of people make them for that reason, or showers, parties, etc. it is a combo of ham, baloney and cheese with pickles or relish and mayonaise. i cannot find the recipe online or on spark people. has anyone else heard of these and if so, where might i find the recipe or nutritional value?
