If you've ever been on Pinterest, you have probably already seen this recipe . . . and probably didn't pay much attention to it, like me. But, after I tried them at a party, I'm a convert. And, again, they are easy to throw together and great to have for just about any spread.
It's the comfort of a ham and cheese sandwich, but with a kick. The seemingly odd flavor combinations come together to make something special. Tangy, savory, a little sweet.
- 1 package of 12 Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
- 1 onion, minced
- 1/4 lb. unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 3 teaspoons poppy seeds
- 1/2 lb. shaved Virginia ham
- 8 slices provolone cheese
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a small skillet, melt the butter.
- Add the onions and sauté for 2 minutes.
- Stir in the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and poppy seeds into the mixture. Simmer for 5 minutes on medium-low heat.
- As a group, slice the rolls lengthwise and place bottoms on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
- Spread half of the butter mixture over the roll bottoms, followed by the ham and cheese slices.
- Top with the other half of the rolls.
- Spread the remaining butter mixture over the top of the rolls.
- Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate until ready to bake.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes until the rolls brown and the cheese melts.
