Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches
Some recipes don’t need much introduction. This would be one of those recipes. These soft, buttery ham-and-cheese sandwiches are crazy delicious and best eaten with your fingers and a stack of napkins. They are perfect for an appetizer, savory brunch item, or just a quick dinner.
And man, they seriously couldn’t be easier to make. Assemble some ham-and-cheese sandwiches in a large baking dish before brushing them with a butter-and-mustard sauce. This takes maybe 5 minutes? Let them sit for awhile before popping them in the oven. The bottoms will be buttery crisp, the insides cheesy hot, and the tops buttery soft.
So good. Your friends and family will be begging for more. Whether you’re planning a New Year’s Eve party or figuring out how to use up all that leftover Christmas ham, do yourself a favor and add these sandwiches to your holiday menu!
Baked Ham & Cheese Sandwiches
2 pkgs. (24 rolls total) small dinner rolls (like Trader Joe’s Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls or King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls)
8 oz. sliced ham
8 oz. sliced cheese (Swiss, Cheddar)
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 1/2 t. Dijon mustard
1 t. Worcestershire sauce
1 T. dried onion flakes
1 1/2 T. poppy seeds
- Slice rolls in half horizontally in one large piece (don’t separate). Place bottom layers in a large rectangle pan (9-11×13″).
- Place ham & cheese slices all over the surface of the bottom slice of all rolls. Replace top slices.
- Place butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Add mustard, Worcestershire sauce, onion flakes, and poppy seeds. Stir to combine. Pour and brush over the top of the rolls. Cover with foil and let stand for 20 minutes (on the counter) – overnight (in the refrigerator).
- Bake at 350-degrees for 20-30 minutes.
Large baking pans come in handy for all kinds of recipes. I love this Nordic Ware 9×15.5″ Steel Baking Dish (Amazon). And it’s less than 15 bucks! Amazon has it in stock and ready to ship (There’s a slightly smaller size on sale for $4.99, but there aren’t many left!).
