HOT HAM AND CHEESE MINI SANDWICHES — These savory ham and Swiss cheese sandwiches are brushed with a poppy seed and onion butter, then baked until toasty. Always a hit on game day!
And they’re so quick and easy to put together, I don’t mind making them often. In fact, my kids can pretty much make these sandwiches themselves.
I made these for my book club and EVERYONE loved them! So yummy! ~ Jessica
The best part, if you ask me, is the buttery coating that is brushed over the sandwiches before baking. It adds so much flavor. My go to rolls for this recipe are Kings Hawaiian–plain or whole wheat, whichever you prefer.
For an added kick, try spreading some additional Dijon mustard on the rolls before adding the ham and cheese. Or sub in honey mustard for the Dijon for a slightly sweeter version.
These sandwiches can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator, but you may need to bake them a few extra minutes, or let them come to room temperature first.
Even better, these can be made ahead and stored in the freezer. Which is so convenient if you’re hosting a party and want to get some of the prep work done ahead of time.
I made this today for a family get together and it was a huge hit! Easy to put together and delish! ~ Dianna
Just defrost the rolls in the refrigerator and then bake them as directed.
Whenever I serve these sandwiches, they are always one of the first things to disappear. In fact, I always double the recipe because one dozen is never enough!
