Ham and Cheese

Jan 3rd

These little Ham and Cheese Sandwiches are perfect for a crowd, dinner party or buffet. You can make them the night before and just bake before company arrives. They are so sweet and savory. The perfect party food. Every time I have made these, they are a huge hit! Honestly, they are so simple to make. I had leftover Honeybaked Ham so I used that, otherwise you can use 1 lb of deli ham. The sweet flavor comes from little Hawaiian rolls, usually found by the deli of your grocery store. I also use Swiss cheese. The savory part comes from butter, Poppy seeds, Worcestershire, and garlic powder. That’s it. I would like to thank my friend Sandy Watson for this recipe, I first had them at a party that she had years ago. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! I’m not sure if it’s her’s or passed down, but I promise you this, you will want to make these at your next gathering.
