These delicious little Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches are also known as Tailgate Sandwiches because they are the ideal party food. Bring them to your next gathering and you’ll get rave reviews.
My little boys and I arrived home at noon today from summer vacation #3. I am extremely excited about the idea of getting back into a routine. Even Elijah, who typically wants to be away from home socializing and playing and doing anything but being cooped up at home, excitedly said, “We’re HOME! I love my home! I’m going to cuddle with my home!” I would relive our summer all over again in a heartbeat (and I plan to next year – in a westerly direction), but I am so. glad. to. be. home.
This week’s agenda? Laundry. Limited electronics. Fruits and veggies. Early bedtimes. Smoothies. Cleaning. School clothes shopping. Exercise. Sleep. Repeat. Repeat.
HOW TO MAKE HOT HAM AND CHEESE SANDWICHES ON HAWAIIAN BREAD (TAILGATE SANDWICHES)
20 small Hawaiian sweet rolls, cut in half crosswise
1 pound deli black forest ham, sliced
20 slices provolone cheese
8-oz. container spreadable cream cheese
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons dried minced onions
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with the bottom halves of the sweet rolls. Top with the ham, then the provolone cheese slices. Spread the cream cheese onto the bottoms of the sweet roll tops and place them in a layer on top of the cheese.
In a medium bowl, combine the butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, onions and Parmesan cheese. Mix well and pour evenly over tops of the sandwiches. Sprinkle the poppy seeds over the top.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until warmed through. Cut at the seams with a knife and serve warm!
