My brother Jason’s “Hamming” it up for the camera

I told you lots of stories about taking care of my brother Jason, now you can meet him! For those of you who don’t know, he’s autistic and 21 years old. Eric and I took care of him while my parents were in Ohio for my uncle’s funeral. This is how he makes his favorite sandwich everyday for school/work. A ham and mustard sandwich. Eric was so excited the first time he saw Jason make it and said “I HAVE to put this on youtube!”

I know Jason would love it if you leave a comment ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Wow, Jason, you must really love mustard! I’m not sure I could eat so much of it at one time — but your video made me hungry, and I think I’ll make myself a ham sandwich for dinner tonight!

  2. Hi Jason,

    I love your method of distributing the mustard by flipping the ham over – very clever! And I’m definitely not as neat and tidy when I make sandwiches. Watching you make your favorite sandwich is making me hungry…ham and mustard -keeping it simple is the best way to go.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Diana,
    Your brother’s happiness made me smile. If only all of us could experience such joy making a sandwich!

  4. Thanks for showing us how to make your favorite sandwich! It’s easy to see why its a favorite- keeping it simple lets the ingredients reslly shine!

  5. Hi, Jason!

    Your video made me smile… Great job with the sandwich! I am a ham and mustard fan, as well. I like mine with honey mustard sometimes, too. Keep up the great work!

  6. Jason, I really liked how you patted down the ham to make sure the mustard got onto BOTH sides of the sandwich, that’s really cool. I’m going to try that next time *I* use mustard :0) My favorite mustard is “Mr. Mustard – Sweet Hot” it’s delicious!

  7. Jason, your sandwich looks delicious! I am letting my teenage grandchildren watch your video so they can learn to do things as neatly as you do! Hurray for Jason!

  8. Jason, that’s an awesome way of getting the mustard to be even on both the top and bottom of the sandwich! I’m going to have to borrow your method for my sandwiches, because I like things to be even like that! Thanks for showing us how!

  9. Hi Jason, the sandwich you made looks great and the video you made is very helpful. You should make more videos because I think there are people out there that could use a good reference on how to make the perfect sandwich. Nice pick with the French’s Mustard….it’s my favorite too!


  10. Jason, That sandwich looks great! Ham and mustard is a killer combo and you made me crave one! I love how you flipped the ham over to the mustard made its way throughout the sandwich – I’m going to make that my new method!


  11. Hi Jason,

    I am a big fan of mustard too! Thanks for showing us how you make your sandwich. It was a great video and a delicious looking sandwich!



  12. I made a sandwich the other day, and the mustard was very runny so I squeezed some out in the sink. Jason said he liked mustard juice and if I kept doing that he wanted separate bottles! Now I understand I should have shaken the bottle instead… I remember when we were kids, the perfect combination for him was peanut butter and honey. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Jason,

    Ham and mustard is a CLASSIC combination. In Britain, we’d say ham and mustard goes together like fish and chips (if you’re ever in the UK, look me up and we’ll have ham and mustard sandwiches for lunch and fish and chips for dinner…it would be the perfect day).

    I think adding the mustard then flipping the ham over is a great way of spreading the mustard out through the sandwich. It makes for a more balanced lunch – brilliant tip, and I’ll be using it!


  14. Jason asked me to post this!

    Thank you for the comments, and may be I will have my sister post another video of me cooking with mustard. I like to make chicken tenders in mustard.

  15. Aloha Jason. I liked your double application of mustard. I do a similar thing by reapplying ketchup to my burger several times while I’m devouring it. You can never have too much mustard on a ham sandwich. Ham mustard purists rule!

  16. Hi Jason, are you cute movie star today. Congratulation with your own sandwiches. I guess this sandwiches should be very delicious one. Very good video Diana, you are the best sis-bro.

    Greeting from Thailand with big a smile.

  17. Personally my mother thought us Jolly boys put too much mustard on sandwiches. I’m glad to know that someone else doesn’t think it’s possible to put “too much” mustard on a sandwich.

  18. Genius! What a perfect way to make sure there is mustard on both sides! i’m going to try this next time. I love mustard! Thanks Jason for the tip!

  19. I love mustard sandwiches too! I can actually eat one that is filled only with ketchup and mustard! Great technique for applying the mustard, I will definately try it!

  20. Hi Jason! I just came accross your video on the web, and I must say that is an impressive sandwich! Thanks for sharing, I never thought about spreading mustard like that! Love and best wishes from Perth, Australia! G’day!
