Oven Baked Ham and Swiss Sandwiches

These sandwiches have made the rounds on the internet for some time now, and I have always wanted to try them. Ham and swiss is my favorite sandwich filling combo and these looked too delicious not to try. They'd be a great addition to a Superbowl buffet line up, or just a yummy, quick weeknight supper. I pared down the quantity of meat and cheese (and butter!) compared to other recipes, and I promise you won't miss it.

Start by making the yummy sauce. I like to melt the butter in the microwave in a measuring cup. Then add the mustard,

onion flakes, poppy seeds

and Worcestershire sauce and whisk together.

Line a baking sheet with foil, then slice the Hawaiian rolls all together so you have a top and bottom. (Do not separate the individual rolls.) Place the bottom layer on the foil-lined pan, then top with the sliced ham.

Add the swiss cheese on top of the ham.

Whisk the dressing again, and now pour about 1/3 of it over the cheese.

Place the top part of the buns over the cheese, and then pour the rest of the sauce over the bread.

Look at all that buttery poppy seed goodness!

Bake the rolls for about 15 minutes or until golden brown

and the cheese is melted.

Oven Baked Ham and Swiss Sandwiches

1 pkg. (12 count) Hawaiian Rolls
1/2 pound of ham, thinly sliced
1/2 pound swiss cheese
6 Tbsp. melted butter
1/2 Tbsp. dry mustard
1/2 Tbsp. onion flakes
1/2 Tbsp. poppy seeds
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Slice the entire package of rolls at once to make a top and bottom layer. Place the bottom layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Cover the rolls with the ham, and then the swiss. In a glass measuring cup, combine the butter, mustard, onion flakes, poppy seeds and Worcestershire sauce. Drizzle a little of the mixture over the ham and cheese layer before replacing top layer of roll. Drizzle remaining mixture over the rolls.

Bake at 350 until cheese is melted, about 10-15 minutes. Serves 4-6.


  1. Looks really good. I would never think to put a sauce on top and then bake. Enjoy your day!
