Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 30 minutes
Makes 12 Sandwiches
1 package of Hawaiian Rolls (12 count)
1 pound of Deli Ham – sliced thin
3/4 pound of Sliced Swiss Cheese
1 stick of Butter – melted
1 Tablespoon of Honey Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon of Poppy Seeds
1 Tablespoon of Minced Onion – dried (in the spice section)
1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce (I used Lea and Perrins)
Salt – to taste, or preference
Pepper – to taste, or preference
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 X 13 inch dish with Aluminum Foil, spray with cooking spray, and set aside. Open the Hawaiian Rolls, and lay them out on a cutting board. Using a large sharp/serrated Knife, cut the rolls in half, length wise. DO NOT SEPARATE THE ROLLS, you want them in a large slab to bake the sandwiches.
Place the bottom half of the rolls in the dish, on the Aluminum Foil. Place half of the Ham on top of the rolls, evenly. Place the Swiss cheese on top of the Ham in an even layer. Place the rest of the Ham on top of the cheese. Place the top slab of the rolls on the Sandwiches.
In a microwave safe bowl, add the Butter, and melt in the Microwave. In a separate bowl, add the Honey Dijon Mustard, Poppy Seeds, Minced Onion, Worcestershire Sauce, Salt, and Pepper, and stir well to blend. Remove the melted Butter from the Microwave, and pour the Butter into the bowl with the remaining ingredients. Stir all the ingredients together, and spoon over the Sandwiches, stirring as you go to keep the ingredients blended in the bowl. Cover with Foil, and place Sandwiches in the Oven. Bake for 20 minutes, or until all the cheese has melted and is gooey. Uncover the rolls and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, watching the rolls constantly so the don’t get too brown, or burn. You want them a golden brown. Remove the dish from the oven, and cut into individual rolls, or Sandwiches. Serve with your favorite sides. Enjoy!
