Ham and Poppyseed Sandwiches


  • 1 package of Kings Hawaiian Rolls Cut in Half [but don’t cut all the way through!]
  • 1 lb Thinly Sliced Deli Ham
  • 1 package of Sliced Swiss Cheese [cut cheese slices in half too!]
  • 1/2 Stick of Salted Butter 
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 3 tsp Yellow Mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 tsp Chopped White Onion
  • 2 tsbp Poppyseeds
  • Dash of Salt and Pepper


1. Heat all ingredients [other than ham, swiss cheese and rolls] in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and stir.
2. Layer cookie sheet with aluminum foil OR cooking spray
3. Layer 1 piece of ham and 1/2 slice of cheese and place in middle of each roll [be sure to place sandwiches close together!]
4. Pour heated ingredients over the top of the rolls.
5. Bake at 350 until heated through [about 12-15 minutes]
++P.S. I usually make extra sauce for dipping and/or extra to spread on top of the rolls–trust me, you’ll want more 😉
