Ham Sandwiches


Ham Sandwiches

2 packages dinner rolls (in the disposable aluminum pans)

1 pound Swiss (or cheddar) cheese, sliced

1 pound shaved deli ham

1 1/2 sticks butter, not margarine

1 medium sized vidalia onion, grated

2 tablespoons stone ground mustard

2 tablespoons poppy seeds (optional)

(Some people add 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce – I did not)


These measurements are approximations because I usually just throw this together without measuring.

Cook the onion in the butter until the onion is softened.  Add the mustard and 1 tablespoon poppy seeds.  Meanwhile, slice the bread horizontally.  Place butter mixture over the tops and bottom (insides) of the two pans of bread.  Layer cheese and and ham.  Place the top layer of bread on the sandwich.  You can melt an additional 1/2 stick of butter and add the remaining poppy seeds to it.  Drizzle over the bread.  Cover and bake at 350 until heated through.  About 15 minutes.
