Baked Ham & Swiss Sandwiches

King Hawaiian sandwiches

We just bought King Hawaiian rolls for the first time last week. I had heard of them, but I could never find them in Rhode Island until just recently.

I knew they were sweet and probably were a little like potato rolls, which my kids love, so I was pretty sure they would be a hit.

I found mine at my local BJ's Wholesale Club. As with most things in a wholesale club, they came in large package, so I had more than enough to make this recipe.

As I suspected the boys love them. Evan ate them for breakfast with a little butter and a glass of chocolate milk. He has some strange food combos.

We had a bit more snow come down when I made these. No where near the amount that we had from the last storm! That was crazy snow. While shoveling commenced, I was toasty warm inside cooking and baking. As the only female in my house, I think that's the way it should be!

You can prepare these in advance and store in the fridge until ready to bake.

Baked Ham and Swiss Sandwiches
adapted from a recipe at Kings Hawaiian
1-12 pack of King’s Hawaiian Original Rolls (I could only find a larger pack at a wholesale club. I used as many buns as I could fit into the pan. I believe it was 16).
1 pound deli ham, thinly sliced
1 pound. Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
1 1/2 sticks butter
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 shallot, finely chopped (or 1 small onion)

Heat oven to 350. Melt butter and mix in mustard, Worcestershire sauce and shallot. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Cut the rolls in half, horizontally (keeping all top and bottom halves intact).

In a greased 9×13 pan, place bottom half of rolls and top with the ham and cheese. Replace the tops of the rolls and pour the butter mixture over top. You can refrigerate overnight or bake immediately.

Cover and bake for 20-25 minutes. I checked the bottom to make sure it wasn’t super soggy. If they are put them back in for a few more minutes. Cut apart to serve.

Whaaaat? You'd never had Kings Hawaiian rolls? They're practically a staple in my house...I buy the sweet, the savory, the sub rolls, the hamburger rolls. Now I feel spoiled.

I've made these sandwiches before. We love them!

King's Hawaiian rolls are a staple in our house, too! Original, hamburger, hot dog . .. . yum! I get mine in Walmart and all my local grocery stores (East Coast) carry them as well as BJ's.

We love these! I get the big package at Sam's (24 rolls) and freeze them eight to a package.
