Virginia Ham & Provolone Sammies

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

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small skillet, melt the butter.
  3. Add the onions and sauté for 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and poppy seeds into the mixture. Simmer for 5 minutes on medium-low heat. 
  5. As a group, slice the rolls lengthwise and place bottoms on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
  6. Spread half of the butter mixture over the roll bottoms, followed by the ham and cheese slices.
  7. Top with the other half of the rolls.
  8. Spread the remaining butter mixture over the top of the rolls.
  9. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate until ready to bake.
  10. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes until the rolls brown and the cheese melts.
