I have always been a ham and cheese kind of girl. As soon as I saw the recipe for these I knew I had to make them! These are easy to put together and are a perfect meal for any weeknight. They are irresistible and I found myself going back for one after another. There is something about the topping that combines with the sweetness of the honey ham and the Hawaiian rolls to create a perfect combination. I recommend using Hawaiian rolls if you are able to find them, if not you can also use slider rolls. This recipe can also be easily doubled for parties.

For the Sandwiches:

  • 12 Hawaiian rolls or slider rolls
  • 12 slices of honey ham
  • 12 small slices of Swiss cheese (I used 3 regular sized slices divided into 4 pieces each)
  • Mayonnaise

For the sauce:

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Poppy seeds, optional (I omitted)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Split the Hawaiian rolls and spread each side with mayonnaise. Fold one slice of ham to fit on each roll and top with a slice of Swiss cheese. Put the tops back on each sandwich and place them on a baking sheet.

To make the sauce, add mustard, minced onion, and Worcestershire sauce to the melted butter. Whisk to combine. Using a spoon, drizzle the sauce over the sandwiches. If using poppy seeds, sprinkle over the sandwiches as well. Cover with foil and bake until cheese is melted, approximately 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 2 minutes. Serve warm.
