Funeral Sandwiches

Virginia ham and Swiss cheese on Hawaiian rolls, marinated in a savory butter sauce and baked.

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried onions
  • 1 12 count package Hawaiian rolls
  • 1 pound Virginia ham
  • 12 slices Swiss cheese
  • sesame seeds for sprinkling

Instructions

  • Melt butter is small saucepan. Add next three ingredients and whisk together. Set aside.
  • Separate rolls into twelve pieces. An easy to do this is to cut through horizontally with a serrated knife and then cut each roll separately.
  • Place the bottoms in a 9x11 baking dish.
  • Divide the ham evenly between each roll trying to keep the ham on top of the roll. This will make it easier to pull apart the sandwiches after their heated.
  • Cover the top of the ham with Swiss cheese slices. No need to worry about centering the cheese. It will melt and won't interfere with pulling apart the sandwiches.
  • Replace the tops. Peak under the cheese to identify the mound of ham and place the top in the center of each mound.
  • Brush the tops of the rolls with the butter mixture. Use every last drop of it.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds. As much or as little as you like.
  • Cover loosely with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours up to 24 hours.
  • When ready to bake, remove plastic wrap. Place in a 350 degree preheated oven for 20 minutes or until cheese melts.
  • If sandwiches aren't going to be served immediately, separate them while the cheese is still warm.
