BAKED HAM & SWISS SANDWICHES

I wish I could tell you where I saw this recipe, but I can’t.  I did adapt it slightly, but it really makes the perfect football food – quick, easy and tasty. 

BAKED HAM & SWISS SANDWICHES
12 pack of KING’S Hawaiian rolls
4 slices thick ham, quartered (to fit on rolls)
4 large slices Swiss cheese, quartered (to fit on rolls)
1/3 cup butter
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder

  • Slice rolls in half and layer pan with bottom halves.*
  • Place a slice of ham and Swiss cheese on each roll.
  • Put the tops on.
  • In a small saucepan melt the butter.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce and seasonings and blend well.
  • Brush the tops of each roll.
  • Cover with foil and refrigerate over night.
  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes.
  • Serve immediately!  They are best hot.

As an added bonus they are really good as a “club” adding turkey as well to the ham.

*Original recipe called for using a 9×13 pan.  I used my lasagna pan and it worked out very well.
