Grandma's Afternoon Finger Sandwiches

For years I've been trying to duplicate my grandmother's recipe for this delicious sandwich that I remember eating as a child.

It is the perfect recipe for when you have leftover ham. I've not tried it with canned ham, but I'm sure it would be just as good.

My grandmother made these sandwiches for teatime. She used white bread without the crusts, and she cut each sandwich into four pieces.
