Party Ham Sandwiches

Image from the internet

Years ago, these were called "Party Ham Sandwiches."

Now, they're called "sliders!"

Some people think they have the market on "new" just because they make it smaller!

Not true!

Regardless of what you call these, we call them "Good!"

My cherubs love these sandwiches.

My Mr. loves them too!

Well, I'm not going to lie -- I love them!

But I love them for other reasons than the rest of my family!

I love them for three reasons:
  1. They're easy to make
  2. They make great lunchbox leftovers
  3. They're rarely duplicated when you take them to a party
Those are reason enough to make them!

If this is a recipe that you remember from long ago, treat yourself to an easy dinner!

If this is new to you, you're going to be thrilled!

Whether you take them to a party or serve them at dinner along with a salad, you will be glad you made them!

Party Ham Sandwiches

1 package of 12 Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
1 pound shaved ham
8 slices of swiss cheese
1 TBSP spicy deli mustard
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup butter
1-2 TBSP poppy seeds
1-2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Split the rolls in half, horizontally, forming a top and bottom piece

Mix the mayo and mustard together.  Taste to see if you like it -- adjust accordingly.  Spread the mixture on the bottom bread pieces.

Layer the ham then the cheese and place the top of the bread on the cheese.

At this point, if you want to wrap in foil and freeze, you can do that!  Before cooking, thaw and follow the remaining steps!

Melt the butter and add the poppy seeds and Worcestershire sauce together.

Place the sandwiches on a baking sheet with a rim.

Remove the top layer of bread and drizzle about 1/2 of the butter mixture on the cut side of the top piece of bread, allowing it to soak in.

Replace the top bread and drizzle the remaining butter mixture over the top of the rolls, allowing it to run over the edges.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and ham is hot.  You want the bread to be toasty, but not burnt.

**I usually bake the sandwiches uncovered until the top is golden like I want, then I place a piece of foil over the top of the rolls and allow the ham and cheese to continue to heat.  I want to make sure the insides are nice and hot and gooey!
