Slow Cooker Ham and Pineapple Sandwich Recipe

My kids love ham, but I struggle thinking of different ways to prepare it. I love the ham and pineapple combination, so I decided to throw it in the crock pot and see what happens. The ham+pineapple+brown sugar makes the most amazing flavor. Even my two youngest children (ages 1 and 4) ate their dinner, so you know it’s a winner!

  • 2 lbs ham, fully cooked and cut into small pieces
  • 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon dried minced onion


  1. Spray your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Add all ingredients in the slow cooker and stir together.
  3. Cook on low heat for 3-4 hours or until completely heated through.
  4. Serve by scooping sandwich filling on a large hamburger bun (or bun of your choice).
  5. To make these even yummier, I threw some swiss cheese on top of the ham and put them under the broiler in the oven for a minute or two (until the cheese was nice and melted).

    • Hi Pam, these are one of our favorite sandwiches! We have never frozen them. I'm not sure how well the pineapple would freeze. But everything else should be fine. You may just have to give it a try and see how it all turns out! Best of luck and keep us posted!! :)
  1. My mom made these for us after I had my 2nd baby. We froze it since she brought us 6 meals at once and then just warmed it up in the crock pot, put on buns, and topped with cheese and a little bbq sauce. So good! And it froze well, except we only had it frozen for about a week and a half.

    These sandwiches were great! There were lots of leftovers so I got creative and made pizza out of them. I spread pizza sauce over crust, then the leftover ham and pineapple, and covered it in the swiss cheese slices. It was AMAZING! It might even be my new favorite pizza recipe.
