For the Arby's Sauce:


  • In a medium-sized skillet over medium heat, cook deli ham until heated through (spray the pan with cooking spray to reduce sticking).
  • Spread Arby's sauce on one side of each bun and place ham on the bun.
  • Spoon on cheddar cheese sauce (see below) and serve.

For the Cheese Sauce:

  • Melt butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour (whisking constantly) and cook for about 1 minute forming a roux.
  • SLOWLY whisk in milk until reaching desired consistency.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cheese.
  • Add salt and pepper, to taste

For the Arby's Sauce:

  • In a small sauce pan combine all the Arby's sauce ingredients.
  • Simmer over medium heat for a couple of mintues.
