Ham and Swiss Sweet Roll Sandwiches with Poppy Seed Glaze

Good Morning!   I hope you all had a nice weekend!  We did a little house hunting and lots of house thinking this weekend, and then finished it up with some yummy food while watching the Super Bowl.  I had planned to share this recipe last week, but the days just got away from me and I never got around to making these.  But I did make them yesterday and snapped a few pictures before we quickly ate every single one!  Really easy and great for a get together.

Ham and Swiss Sweet Roll Sandwiches with Glaze

  • 12 Kings Savory Butter Hawaiian Rolls
  • 1/2 pound of shaved honey ham
  • 12 slices of thin Swiss cheese
  • 3/4 stick of butter
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried onions
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
  1. Slice Hawaiian rolls in half and place in baking dish. 
  2. Spread ham over the rolls, then layer with Swiss cheese on top.
  3. Place the other halves of the rolls on top and set aside.
  4. In a small sauce pan, combine butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, dried onions, poppy seed and brown sugar and heat over medium heat until butter melts and it creates a sauce.  (I microwaved mine for 2.5 minutes)
  5. Pour equal parts of the sauce over top of the rolls.
  6. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate for 3 hours (or overnight.)
  7. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees, and bake for 20 minutes.  Uncover and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts.  Serve warm.

I have also made these using Pillsbury pizza dough instead of the rolls.  You place the ham and cheese inside the dough, roll it together, and then slice it into a pinwheel type sandwich.  That way is good too, but these butter sweet rolls are amazing and definitely my favorite way to make these.  They are sure to be a hit at your next gathering!  Hope you enjoy.


  1. These are so good. I make them all the time, and even switch out the meat sometimes (last time, we did shaved chicken breast). The glaze is my favorite!

    1. The glaze is the best! I like the idea of switching out the meat...will need to try.

  2. Oh my, they remind me of my favorite childhood sandwich!!
