You ever see a foodie shots that gives you an instant and uncontrollable need to eat that dish “RIGHT NOW!”…?
This was one of those for me. It was a Pinterest find…which was actually someone else’s Pinterest find, and, as they didn’t credit the original source, I don’t feel obliged to give them “inspiration” credit. I did change up several of the ingredients and…oh baby…it’s just as good as it looks!
These make a fantastic single-serving appetizer, or double them up and serve with your favorite yummy potato style and a salad for a kickin’ dinner.
Next time…pastrami and habanero-jack cheese!
Big Kahuna Baked Ham & Cheese
12 pack sweet Hawaiian rolls
3/4 lb. honey-baked ham, shaved
3/4 lb. Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
1 stick butter
3 tbsp. sweet hot mustard (or Dijon, if you don’t like the heat)
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
3 tsp. toasted sesame seeds
1 small sweet onion, chopped
Olive oil spray
Preheat oven to 350F. Melt the butter and stir in the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, onion and sesame seeds. Simmer for a minute or two.
Slice the entire pack of rolls in half, horizontally (keeping all the tops and bottoms in one piece).
Spray a 9×13 pan with olive oil spray, place bottom half of rolls in the pan, and spread 1/2 of the onion mixture over the bottoms.

Top with the ham (super-cute sous chef optional, but recommended.)
Top the ham with cheese slices.
Put the tops of the rolls back on, and slather (I love that word) with the remaining onion mixture.
Cover with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes, until cheese is melted.
Separate, serve, and enjoy!
