Hawaiian Sweet Roll Sammies!

These are way yummy and easy to make! They can be made ahead and then put in the fridge which is a huge plus for me! The original version was yummy but not very kid friendly since it is so oniony. I changed that and mixed in some cheddar so the swiss cheese wasn't so strong since my husband isn't a huge fan of swiss. I have already shared this recipe with some friends and they all love it! Even if you aren't an onion fan given this a try!

What you need:
  • 8 T Butter
  • white onion
  • 3 T Dijon Mustand
  • 2 T worchestershire
  • 2 1/2 T Flour
  • 2 T poppy seeds
  • 1/2 pound ham
  • 12 hawaiian sweet rolls (you can use other rolls instead these just make it easier since they are all attached)
  • 5 slices swiss (you could do all swiss or all cheddar if you prefer that)
  • 4 slices cheddar
  • salt & Pepper (Even if a recipe doesnt call for this I always add some to enhance the flavor)
What to do:
  1. Grate onion! (I use a food processor so it is almost a paste so there are no large chunks)
  2. Melt butter on stove.
  3. add onions, dijon, worchestershire, poppy seeds and flour.
  4. Mix well.
  5. Simmer until onions are soft. This only takes a few minutes.
  6. Slice hawaiian sweet rolls in half. (Keep them all connected makes it easier)
  7. Line a glass 9x13 pan with foil and place bottom half of rolls in.
  8. Spread some of the onion sauce over the rolls.
  9. Put the ham over the sauce. I tore the pieces apart so they were a lil thicker.
  10. Make a checkerboad pattern with swiss and cheddar.
  11. Cover with tops of rolls
  12. Pour more sauce over the top (Careful not to get too much in cracks of rolls, You don't have to use all the sauce either)
  13. Cover with aluminum foil.
  14. Bake in oven at 350 for 20 minutes
  15. Slice down roll lines
This is a really easy recipe that is a great people pleaser! My husband and I eat about 4 each so if you are having lots of people you will need to make more! The great thing about this recipe is it can be changed to use whatever you have in your house. You can try different meats or cheeses! Don't be afraid to experiment a bit!
Let me know what you think!
