Guest Post-Hawaiian Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

Dawn submitted these ham and cheese baked sandwiches. I have tried a similar variation of these and they were delicious! I can't wait to try this recipe (From

Hawaiian Ham and Cheese Sandwiches 
aka: Tailgate Sandwiches 
Servings: 20 Ready in: 45 minutes 

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 
½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted 
1 tablespoon yellow mustard 
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 
2 tablespoons dried minced onions 
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese 
2 tablespoons poppy seeds 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9x13 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. 

2. 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! 

Dawn said that they turned out amazing and her husband was already begging her to make them again. She thought something in the sauce had a pretty strong flavor that she would probably cut back on next time because of personal preference (probably the mustard or Worcestershire sauce).  

Here is her completed picture. She only made 12 because 20 seemed to be too many for her family. 



  1. Hi Kristin,

    Looks very good! Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks for reading! Hope you try them sometime!

  2. My comment was lost, so I'll try again.... I'm so glad you shared this recipe. I love any "Hawaiian" and this looks like a recipe I want to make very soon - yummy! Thanks for sharing :)

  3. I'm impressed! Those buns look awesome. Very yummy recipe.

    1. I LOVE those sweet Hawaiian rolls anyway, so any recipe with them I think would be great!

  4. Hmmm, yum. I have to bring some tasty treat to a Super Bowl party that I'll be reluctantly going to (sorry, not a football fan, but if I don't go to this party I'll never hear the end of it from my friends. LOL). I'll have to give these sandwiches a try.

    1. HA! I'm not a football fan either. Just enjoy the social aspects and don't talk during the intense parts... or stand in front of the TV! :-) You'll be the talk of the party if you bring these! But they are best eaten warm right out of the oven I think.

  5. These sound delicious. I'll have to try it with some soy substitutes.

    1. That would be interesting! Please let me know how they turn out if you ever try it!

  6. YUM. I love the idea of baking a sandwich.

    1. For some reason it makes it seem fancier and more delicious! I did it a couple nights ago with some rolls putting mayo and corned beef (lunch meat) and cheddar cheese on it and warming in the oven with the sandwich open. It was really good! I broiled it for a min at the end. YUM!
