Allow to stand for 15 minutes and then dry with paper towel. In mixing bowl combine ham, eggs, onions, hot pepper sauce, mustard and half of the mayonnaise.
If mixture is too dry, add a little mayonnaise. However, mixture should be able to hold a shape in a spoon. Stuff cucumbers tightly, wrap in aluminum foil and chill for 2-3 hours. Slice diagonally on a slant about half an inch thick and serve immediately.
