Sassy Tailgate Sandwiches

FullSizeRenderThese sandwiches are made with those little pieces of heaven.  I mean Hawaiian rolls.  And once you make them, they disappear very quickly.  They are great for parties, tailgates or just 10 teenage boys coming over to graze. I mean eat. The original recipe is from  I modified the ingredients to fit my family’s tastebuds.  I typically triple the recipe when I’m feeding at least 10 people. And they freeze very well!


1 (12 count) package Hawaiian bread rolls

1 lb shaved Black Forest ham

6 slices swiss cheese (or gruyere)

1/2 cup butter, melted

2 tsp dried minced onion

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese


Cut all rolls in half with a serrated knife.  Place roll bottoms in 9×13 pan sprayed with cooking spray. Place equal amounts of ham on each roll bottom.  Top with cheese. In a separate bowl, mix together melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, onion and Parmesan cheese. Pour over your sandwiches and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes (or even overnight!). Place sandwiches, covered in foil, in a preheated 250 degree oven.  Bake for 20 minutes or until warmed through and cheese has melted.
