Mini Ham and Cheese Rolls

by Laura

I originally saw these cute little Mini Ham and Cheese Rolls on Big Red Kitchen. Then I saw Annemarie on Taste Buds post them. It reminded me of how I wanted to try them, so I finally made them. These are a fun and tasty way to make a sandwich.

I did follow Annemarie’s instruction and reduced the poppy seeds from 1 Tbsp. to 1 tsp. and thought they were perfect. I only made half a recipe and it was just right for my family of 5. My daughter only ate one roll. I used a package of King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls for my recipe. The package is 12 oz with 12 mini sized rolls. It was delish!

Mini Ham and Cheese Rolls


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp dried minced onions
  • 1 Tbsp prepared mustard (I used Honey Dijon)
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 dozen dinner rolls or 2 dozen party rolls (I used 1 pkg of King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls for half a recipe)
  • 1/2 lb thinly sliced ham
  • 1/2 lb thinly sliced Swiss cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°.
  2. In a small mixing bowl mix onion, mustard, poppy seeds, and melted butter. Leaving the dinner rolls intact, slice them open so that you have one solid top and bottom. Place the bottom half on a baking sheet or in a 9×13 inch baking pan, the pan size will depend on choice of rolls.
  3. Line the bottom half of the rolls with cheese slices and ham. Return the top part of the rolls and drizzle the butter mixture evenly over top. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Now use a sharp knife and separate the little sandwiches. Place on a pretty platter and serve immediately.

Notes

These can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, may require 5 more minutes of baking. Also can be prepared ahead and frozen. Defrost in refrigerator overnight and bake as directed. I love keeping a pan of these in the freezer for emergencies. Leftovers can be reheated in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds.

Hot Roast Beef Party Sandwiches | Real Mom Kitchen January 8, 2011 - 7:16 am

[…] Now back to these sandwiches. I adapted it from a Southern Living recipe. These sandwiches bring together the flavors of sweet with the use of peach preserves.  Then you get that savory flavor from the roast beef and mustard.  The sandwich also includes havarti cheese which is one of my favorites.  Havarti has a buttery flavor and pairs well with fruit.  I think it would be fun to have these at your party along with mini ham and cheese sandwiches.

We love these… have been making them for years but this was our first try on the sweet rolls… what a hit. Only thing I do different is to put the butter mixture on the insides of the rolls.

Hi Laura, Glad you liked these! They are my go to when feeding a crowd. When I first posted these a long time ago I had typed in 2 T. of poppyseed, can you imagine? The mistake was caught when my SIL made them with that many poppyseeds and called me and said "wow you really like poppeyseeds!" It is a forgiving recipe and can be made whatever way you want. Sometimes I leave them out entirely! I have even seen some people use sesame seeds instead. Well you have a great weekend. Thanks for the link!
