Saturday we celebrated Taden’s first birthday party with lots of family, friends and food. It was such a fun afternoon and I cannot wait to share pictures of the event (still finishing editing them!), but in the meantime I thought I would share a couple recipes of the dishes I made for the event.
Recipe quantity: 2 dozen
What you will need:
- 2-12 packages of sweet Hawaiian dinner rolls
- 1 1/2 pound of Virginia ham
- 12 slices of Swiss cheese
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons dried onion
- poppy seeds
- In the bottom of two 9 x 13 pans place the bottoms of 12 rolls in each pan.
- Place approximately 2 slices of ham on each roll.
- Cut the cheese slices into 4 quarters and place 2 small pieces on the ham slices.
- In a small sauce pan, melt the butter, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and dried onions.
- Spread the melted sauce on the cheese slices within the sandwich.
- Put the dinner roll tops on.
- Spread the remaining melted sauce on the tops of the rolls.
- Sprinkle the buns with poppy seeds and cover with foil.
- Let refrigerate overnight (if not able to set overnight, they are still great made right away!).
- Preheat over 350 degrees and uncover sandwiches.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes and serve hot or at room temperature.
Before I made these I was a little nervous they would be too buttery (is that really possible?!) and really greasy, but the butter mixture soaks into the bread for just the right amount of flavor. No one needed any additional sauces or fixings for this sandwich. They are delicious as is!! Enjoy.
