King's Hawaiian Roll Ham Sandwiches

Mini Poppy Seed Ham Sandwiches on Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

It’s not a secret that I am not from Indiana, but I can’t help to be catching basketball fever. Not that I needed much coaxing, but I did need some coaching to pull for an Indiana team. As it has been said, “Welcome to Indiana basketball.” Can you name that movie??? We are definitely pulling for Butler over UCONN in the NCAA championship game at our house. And we are definitely going to be eating well while we watch!

Ham Sandwich Sliders on Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
To fully enjoy good basketball, good food is in order. Last week, I had some great people link up some tasty recipes that I am highly recommending for game night.

Jill over at Boys, Bovines, and Blessings has a fantastic Pepsi Pork Chop recipe. I managed to pull this off for a post soccer game this weekend by setting the crock pot on high and cooking for four hours. I added some mashed potatoes to the plate, and the kids were scraping their plates clean.

Ethne over at WOM:MOM made a “can eat in one sitting” ham dip that is also a must make. It is a five ingredient or less recipe which always means keeper. I added 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce to her recipe. Mainly because I am a little obsessed with the stuff.

And finally, anyone who loves jalapeño poppers has to try Desi’s, from Steak N Potatoes Kinda Girl, poppers. My husband is going to be excited to be seeing these come out of the oven tomorrow night!

Now, many of you have seen my freezer ham sammies, and do I have the slider version for you this week at Hunk of Meat Monday.

Start by chopping or grating an onion. I use the Pampered Chef food chopper. I get a pretty fine mince.

Onion, butter, mustard and poppy seed mixtureGrab a package of Hawaiian sweet dinner rolls and cut the entire package in half length wise as one large piece.

Place the roll bottoms in a aluminum foil lined 13 by 9 pan. Spread the onion mixture on the entire bottom. You will want to save about 1/4 of the mixture back.

onion mixture spread on rollsGrab some shaved hams, about a half a pound, and seven to eight slices of swiss cheese. Put the ham on top of the onions and then add the slices of cheese.

Ham and Cheese

  6. Farmchick says:

    I love your recipes. They are REAL things I can cook. lol The sandwiches look great and thanks for the links.

  7. Tiffany @ No Ordinary Homestead says:

    Mmmh, I always loved that Hawaiian bread…but I guess I will either have to figure out how to make it myself or just go without until we finally move back to the US. These sammies look really tasty though!

  8. VanderbiltWife says:

    YUMMMM. My aunt makes something very similar but I'd never gotten the recipe. Definitely bookmarking this one!

  9. Mo 'Betta says:

    These are so good! I'm always amazed that just a few simple ingredients can make some of the tastiest things!

  10. We love these sandwiches at our house, too. Aren't they the best! Now I'm craving them!!!

    Thanks so much for sharing your recipe in this week's Mingle Monday!

  11. Vicki V says:

    I make a similar sandwich to yours, and they are divine! Only difference is that my recipe uses dijon mustard instead of worcestershire sauce. So quick, so tasty!

  12. KB and Whitesnake says:

    They look delish. I love anything with melted cheese.

  13. Michelle says:

    They look so good everyone loves a toastie :)

  14. Wow. I've never seen a casserole sandwich before. Looks excellent!

  15. ButterYum says:

    Oh yes, I know this recipe very, very well. I even blogged about it not too long ago. These little sandwiches are always a hit!


  16. These are indeed game time favorite, looks dleicious. Thanks for sharing with Hearth and Soul blog hop.

  17. Thanks so much for the feature! I hope you and your hubby enjoy those poppers :)

    I linked up Katie Lee's Logan County Burgers!

  18. Kristen says:

    Those sandwiches look awesome. My mother made one that was similar when I was a kid and I haven't thought about it in years.

  19. KB and Whitesnake says:

    Thanks for stopping by and sharing your recipe with us :)

  20. Are the poppy seeds that necessary or could I leave them out?

  21. Just stopped by to tell you that I made your Sammies for supper tonight and my family LOVED them! Sweet and tangy…they were the perfect sandwich! Thank you for sharing!!!

  22. How far in advance do you think i can make and refrigerate? If i assemble them ob a thursday night and cook them satrday morning you think they will be okay, or do i need to wait til friday?

  23. Leah @ Beyer Beware says:

    Poppy seeds are not necessary. I think they would be just fine without them.

    And I think if you make them two days in advance, they will be just fine. Actually, maybe even better because the flavors will have soaked in! May need to bake a few minutes longer, but go for it!

  24. Anonymous says:

    These look SSOOOOOO good!! I will have to try them this weekend! Also,Pampered Chef has a newer product called the manual food processor that is even faster and more fun to use!!

  25. Made these last week, and my husband and I loved them! He ate them for lunch AND dinner! Thanks for the recipe.

  26. These look so good!

  27. Nancy Carter says:

    Everyone LOVED these! YUM! They went over bigger than what I anticipated – Thanks :)

  28. if you aren't in the states google hawaiian rolls for the bread machine..I used those! Very darn good..thanks for the recipe!

  31. Hi! These look so delicious and I would love to try them! Do you know of an alternative to the mustard in the recipe? I'm unfortunately allergic. :(

  32. momtoabowhead says:

    I made this recipe recently and my family LOVED it so much. I'm trying it today with leftover turkey. I'm sure it will still work great. I can't get enough of these little sandwiches. :)

    Thanks so much for sharing such a delicious recipe.

    I made these for a lazy Sunday lunch today and was a little disappointed considering all the positive posts above. The flavors were far too strong even though we all like the ingredients separately.

    My mother-in-law has been making these since I met her! One of my favorite things she makes. She has always called them "sliders" I don't care what they are called- the're flippin' good! If you're looking for something new to try, I totally suggest making them!

  42. Georganne says:

    I've seen several variations on this recipe, and I'm trying your's this weekend. Linked it on my blog at Can't wait!!

  43. I felt the same way, it was a little disappointing.

  44. Anonymous says:

    Just made these and that are GREAT!

  45. I wanted you to know that I copied your recipe for the ham and cheese hawaian rolls into my recipe box here:
    I shamefully used your photos as well…but I clearly gave you the credit in my comments and provided a link back to your page.

  46. Daddy Knaus says:

    Okay I don't know why the others thought this was disappointing. I just made these and I absolutely LOVE IT!!! Oh my gosh it was soo good. Maybe they didn't use a good mustard? I used mustard that I sampled at Trader Joes. Wow, great recipe… Bravo..

    You should use the Hawaiin rolls that come in a 4 pack! Perfect for just 2 people!

  48. Anonymous says:

    did not like this at all. will not be making it again.

  49. I just made this for the hungry boys in my house and we LOVED it!!! Will definately be making this again. Yummo!

  50. HSDesigns says:

    wonder if these would be good with provolone or a different cheese?

  51. I really love this recipe, although I had a hard time making it healthy without sacrificing taste. The only thing I changed though was I used Dijon Mustard with Chardonnay (yum!!), deli turkey and a round hawaiian loaf, which actually turned out great because it came with it's own disposable pan! Will TOTALLY try this again! Thanks!

  52. Don't like onions.. what else can be used?

  53. Gretchen and Kateena says:

    My friend made these for Superbowl…. AMAZING and the next day….. STUPENDOUS!

  54. Gretchen and Kateena says:


  55. Pinned these to my pinterest account a few weeks back. Made them today for family. they were a hit we ate the whole thing. thank you!

  56. chriscookin says:

    those look amazing!! i can't wait to try them. fyi–be careful of the surface you use for your food chopper. you want a cutting board that will show knife/cut marks otherwise, you may dull the blades! =)

  57. Anonymous says:

    Can't stop making these! I swear that I have made these at least 5 times since I pinned them. Yummy!!

  58. Anonymous says:

    i found your blog via pinterest. i'm now making these for the 2nd time in a week. i've made a lot of recipes over the last year that i've "pinned" but my hubby and kids say this one is the BEST!

  59. Found these on Pinterest, and they are currently in the oven…they smell HEAVENLY! And they were super fast to make too. Love my Pampered Chef chopper as well! :) Thank you!

  60. Kristy says:

    Hi Leah, I found this recipe on Pinterest. I have made these sandwiches twice now. This is a new favorite at our house! I followed your recipe except I didn’t use the poppyseeds. Thank you so much for sharing! There are amazing!!

  61. I have made the Poppyseed and ham and cheese sandwiches two times, plus I have a pan in the refrigerator waiting for my family to arrive from Maryland !!! They are to die for !! Thanks

  62. I’m reading this post basketball season… however, I think with these treats, you would make a great Hoosier! :)

  63. These look and sound SO good. I’d use provolone, probably. I’ll bet they freeze well … easy make-ahead dish for parties or the holidays.

  64. I bet they would be great for camping as well. Make ahead, keep in the foil warm up, tada lunch!
    Found on Pinterest!

  65. I know I’m the lucky millionth person to say this, but these were FABULOUS and the whole family swooned over them (even my picky 7 year old!) Thank you for a keeper!! :)

  66. Will these be ok if I make them the night before?

  67. No such thing as Hawiian rolls where I live, would Irish potato rolls be similar?

  68. I saw this recipe on Food network last week. Homemade in America. Some lady in Oklahoma is making a lot of money selling these.

  69. Oh my gosh… this looks like HEAVEN… will be doing this for Christmas Day! Thanks for Sharing

  70. I’m one of the few that did not like them either. Disappointed, but thank you for sharing. Husband did not like them either, and we are not picky eaters.

  71. Hi, I’m just breaking in to the cooking and blogging world and wanted to let you know I tried your recipe. My husband and I loved it, and I posted about it on Nermal & Friends (
    Thanks for the recipe!

  72. Bethany K. says:

    I love this recipe and these sandwiches are SO good, but I have a problem with the onion/butter mixture not getting anywhere close to as smooth as yours. I used Grey Poupon from the fridge, but I’ve also tried it at room temperature, and the mustard NEVER mixes fully with the butter/onions. What kind of butter and mustard do you use?

  73. I’ve made these four times since finding your recipe and they’re always a hit. And I’ve recently become obsessed with these Hawaiian rolls so I used them for pretty much any hot sandwich I make now. Thanks for the recipe!

  74. I am so happy I found this recipe. It is a total favorite with everyone around here. My son does not like onions but it still works. I just cut the sauce recipe in 3rds and he gets his without the onions. So everyone is happy. Yay!!!!!

  75. I am going to be making 150 of these for a wedding, and was wondering if making them the night before and putting in refrigerator overnight if they would get soggy?

  76. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?

    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it

  77. I made these sandwiches for my housewarming party and they were a huge hit. So many people asked for the recipe. It was so simple. I will definitely add to my list of go to potluck recipes.

  78. An alternate version for kids who won’t touch mustard, substitute the dijon for honey mustard. NOM
