Pintrest Recipe Test – Kings Hawaiian Baked Ham Sandwiches
The recipe for these tasty little morsels appeared to be fairly easy to put together, but like with most everything else I find on the internet, I wouldn't believe it until I tried it myself.
I don't have a Pintrest page, but my wife does, and since she gave me the user name and password, I guess that means I kind of do have a Pintrest page. Anyway, as the one who picks out the meals we're going to eat, and picks up what we need at the grocery store each week, I've found her (our?) page to a good place to find new recipes to try. When I found this recipe she pinned to her board, I thought it looked pretty darn delicious, and how could it not be? It has all the right ingredients! Ham? Good. Cheese? Good. King's Hawaiian Rolls? Good. Enough butter to give a horse a heart attack? Extra good.
As it turns out, I was right. These were really, really good! The sweetness of the roll mixed with the saltiness of the ham, and the savoriness of the cheese and mustard mixture made for a delicious meal.
Here's how to put it together:
- 1 12 pack of King’s Hawaiian Original Rolls
- 1 lb. deli ham, shaved*
- 1 lb. Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
- 1 1/2 sticks butter
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 3 teaspoons of poppy seeds
- 1 onion, chopped**
*We used pre-packaged deli-style lunch meat.
**Our son is not a fan of onions, so we substituted with onion powder
- Heat oven to 350. In a small sauce pot, melt the butter and mix in mustard, Worcestershire sauce, onion (or onion powder) and poppy seed. Simmer for several minutes.
- DO NOT SEPARATE THE ROLLS! Cut the entire pack of rolls in half, horizontally (keeping all top and bottom halves in tact).
- In a greased 9×13 pan, place bottom half of rolls and spread 1/3 of the onion mixture over the bottom of the rolls followed by the ham and cheese.
- Replace the tops of the rolls and spread the remaining onion mixture over top.
- Cover and bake for 15-20 minutes and, once finished, separate for serving.
The other nice thing about this recipe is that it can easily tailored to your liking. Not a fan of Swiss Cheese? Switch it out with something like Provolone, or Cheddar. Or if you prefer a little kick to your food, toss on slices of Pepper Jack. You could also leave out the poppy seed, if you're afraid of it's potential (untrue) effect.
Whip up a quick vegetable side dish, or serve with chips, fries, or tater tots. Whatever you choose, I think you'll find that you have a recipe with keeping around to repeat somewhere down the road.
