My love for pancakes is well documented. This weekend I was in the mood to make a really hearty, savory version instead of my usual sweet varieties. Marc checked me for a fever but all was well, ha! I indulged my sweet tooth plenty on our cruise last week and it is still trying to recover. So I devised fluffy, slightly spicy chili corn pancakes. They became the bread in these delectable chili corn cake ham sandwiches! The batter came together quickly.
Once the pancakes and sauce cooked, it was just time to assemble everything. I layered thinly sliced ham between two cakes to form the sandwiches. Then they all just were topped with the gooey, warm cheddar sauce and fresh cilantro for garnish. Oh my goodness, there was endless flavor here. The chili corn cakes had a fantastic kick, but the cheddar sauce kept it from being overbearing. The salty ham just brought it all together. These chili corn cake ham sandwiches work for any meal of the day! Enjoy, xoxo.
