Ham and Cheese Party Sandwiches – sweet Hawaiian rolls, ham, Swiss cheese with poppy seeds, mustard spread make these perfect for your Game Day entertaining!
Every time I make these sandwiches, I’m amazed at how easy they are to make and how very delicious they are.
I originally found this recipe from Jenni at Pastry Chef Online when it came up in my Facebook news feed. They looked so incredibly good with the poppy seeds oozing out the sides and the melted cheese! I’ve also got a soft spot for a warm ham and cheese, so I knew I just had to make them.
We ate them during halftime of last year’s Superbowl and immediately decided that they’ll be a staple to our yearly football gathering.
I’m also making them for Sunday’s games because I don’t want to wait until February 7th to eat these babies! They’re SO good!

- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature
- 2 1/2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard NOT Dijon
- 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
- 1 tablespoon finely minced onion
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 12- package King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
- 1 9- ounce package thinly sliced brown sugar ham about 12-15 slices
- 1 7- ounce package sliced Swiss cheese about 10 slices
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a medium bowl, mash together the butter, mustard, poppy seeds, onion and Worcestershire sauce until it is well combined and thick.
- Remove the rolls from the carton in one piece. Using a long knife and keeping the rolls together, slice them in half horizontally.
- On the cut portion of the rolls, spread half of the butter mixture on each.
- Place the ham slices evenly over the bottom portion of the rolls.
- Cover the ham with the slices of Swiss cheese, distributed evenly.
- Place the top portion of the rolls onto the base and return the contents to the carton. They can be baked either in the carton or on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 10 - 12 minutes until warm and the cheese has nicely melted. Cover with tin foil if the top is browning too quickly.
I honestly don’t think I’ll be able to hold off until next year to make them again. They’re so quick, easy and delicious that this will be a great dinner for a busy weekday during the rest of the year. I also know that the family won’t argue when I put these in front of them, and that’s always a plus, right?
Thanks again to Miss Jenni at Pastry Chef Online for the recipe! It’s a keeper!!
