It was my turn to bring dinner to my Tuesday night small group, so I decided to make ham delights! It's been cold again, but I'm really tired of my regular soups and chilis, so I went with another form of comfort food. These are ooey, gooey, and delicious...the casserole dishes emptied quickly! ;)
Also, this takes maybe 20 minutes to put together. I made them the night before (picture up top), then baked right before my group. I varied the original recipe by adding onion powder instead of a real onion, and I used more sandwich-style rolls. I served it with a big salad and some fruit.
Here's the recipe:
1 package of dinner rolls (I used Sara Lee classic dinner rolls and they were perfect)
1 stick of butter (nom nom)
1 tablespoon of grainy mustard
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon of poppyseeds
1 package of sliced deli ham (1/2 pound)
1 package of sliced swiss cheese (8 slices)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
Cut the rolls in half (to make a top/bottom "bun")
Take the tops of the rolls off and set aside then place the bottoms in to a 9x13 casserole dish.
In the microwave, melt the butter
Mix butter, mustard, onion powder, worcestershire, and poppy seeds
Spread the butter mixture on top of the rolls in the casserole dish
Layer ham and cheese on top-- with this step just layer on top of rolls, meaning, there's no need to make individual "sandwiches".
Place top buns and then sprinkle any extra butter mixture on top (optional)
Cover with foil and bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes. Until you see the cheese is melted.
Cut the lines between the rolls like a sheet cake and serve warm.
Note: I also made a pan of these with sliced turkey and they were great as well!
