A Blackstone Ham and Turkey Sub can be made in minutes and is a warm and hardy meal. Nothing beats a simple and delicious ham and turkey sandwich topped with melting cheese.
A twist on a basic lunchmeat sandwich that is loved by many. Easily customizable to make it all your own.
Use your favorite sliced deli ham and turkey along with your favorite cheese to melt over the top. This turkey ham sandwich has the addition of sautéed fresh mushrooms and is topped with a couple pieces of lettuce and a squirt of mayo.
My family has dubbed this my “best sub sandwich” ever!! Don’t like ham? Double up on the turkey or substitute another deli meat favorite. Turkey meat is lean and carries a higher nutritional value than any deli meat.

What Turkey and Ham Do I Use?
The best turkey and ham to use for this sub sandwich recipe is freshly sliced deli counter meat. Most grocery stores have a deli counter.
Locate yours and find out what ham and turkey options that they have. Ask for samples if they offer them. My family will only eat very thin sliced deli meats.
For this recipe, I used very thin deli ham and turkey. The ham that I like is “cooked ham” but my other family members like a home-style ham. Other options are honey, off the bone ham, smoked, uncured, brown sugar, black forest, or a Polish ham.
Deli turkey options are oven roasted, smoked, black forest, maple and honey, off the bone turkey breast, uncured, and honey mesquite.
If purchasing your lunch meats from the deli counter is not an option, then you can buy packages of pre-sliced meats in the cooler section of the grocery store. I do not recommend using chunks of turkey or ham for this sub sandwich because you will not get the same great flavor.
What is the Best Cheese for Sub Sandwich Recipe?
Provolone cheese is my #1 choice when topping the griddle grilled lunchmeat sandwich. Other cheeses such as Swiss, mozzarella, white American, Havarti, smoked gouda, or even pepper jack cheese if you want a little spiciness to your sub sandwich will work.
I prefer cheese slices, but I’ve used shredded cheese in a pinch when I run out of the sliced version.
How to Make a Blackstone Ham and Turkey Sub
For one sub sandwich recipe you will want 2 slices of turkey and 2 slices of ham. Place on a cutting board or mat and cut into small pieces.
If using other add-ins such as fresh mushrooms, onion, or peppers, make sure to dice them up into small pieces so that they cook up very quickly. Once the griddle is hot, very lightly oil the flat top to prevent your food from sticking.
Place your turkey and ham deli meat pieces onto one section of the hot griddle. If using other ingredients for your sandwich, place them on a different section of the hot flat top griddle.
Let cook and use a dome lid if needed. Heat and toast the sub bun by placing it so the cut side is down on the hot flat top.
With a griddle spatula, flip the ham, turkey, and mushrooms to get a nice golden-brown color. Combine all ingredients on the griddle and top with your cheese. Cover with a dome lid to help the cheese melt.
How to Serve Turkey Ham Sandwich
Carefully scoop up the melted cheese topped ham and turkey pieces with a griddle spatula and set into the toasty warm sub bun. Top with your favorite condiments and serve with your favorite side dishes.
I like to add a couple pieces of lettuce and an even layer of mayo. A dill pickle spear and a handful of potato chips make a great side option to go along with your best sub sandwich recipe.
How to Store Ham and Turkey Sub Sandwich
You may want to make extras to have leftovers of a later meal. If you have any leftovers, make sure that it does not have any condiments on it.
Wrap sandwich in a piece of paper towel and store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Eat the lunchmeat sandwich cold or warm in the microwave or air fryer until the desired temperature is reached.

Want to add a little more flavor to your sub sandwich? Add one or more of the following:
- Blue Cheese
- Avocado Slices
- Vinegar and Oil
- Salt and Pepper
- Diced Bell Peppers or White Onions
- Swap out the sub bun for a slice or two of bread.
