Ham & Swiss Sammis: Fancy Style (but Easy to Make!)

Thursday, December 8, 2011

Yeay! My first recipe post, and it's definitely one to write about! I know... you're thinking... really Liz? Your first recipe is a fancy sandwich, but seriously it is so easy, yet so much more than mini sandwiches! Just trust me :) I found this from another cooking blog, so credit for this recipe most certainly goes to a lovely lady at Beyer Beware

Ok first things first, I'll give you the list of ingredients you'll be needing:
-1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
-1 small onion, finely diced/chopped
-3 Tbsp dijon mustard
-1 Tbsp worchestershire sauce
-2 Tbsp poppy seeds
-1 package of 12 Hawaiian sweet rolls
-1/2 pound of ham (shaved or even thin sliced works, whatever type you like)
-6-8 slices of swiss cheese

**At this time preheat your oven to 350 degrees so its ready when you are**

First you will be making up the sauce, which is the base for the flavor pop in this recipe, and what makes it 'fancy', but most importantly makes it seem like you spent a whole lot more effort than you did:

1. Melt the stick of butter in a medium sized pan
2. Add in your diced/chopped onion, and let simmer for about 5 mins til onions become tender
3. Add in dijon mustard, worchestershire sauce, and poppy seeds, and let simmer a few minutes more
4. Turn the heat down low and let sauce sit

**Below is pictured what the sauce looks like upon completion***

Next, you have to assemble the sammis, which I found kinda fun, and I bet it is something kids would love to help with even! I will show a picture after each of these steps so its easier to understand the assembly process:

1. Cut entire pack of Hawaiian sweet rolls in half doing your best to leave it one big piece. Place the bottom section of rolls into a 9x13 baking dish.

2. Use about two-thirds of the sauce you've made and spread it evenly across the bottom section of rolls (you'll want to save remaining sauce for a little later in the recipe)

3. Now you want to spread your ham evenly on top of the sauce and then place your cheese slices evenly on top of the ham (let the kiddos help with this part if you want!)

4. Now place the top section of the rolls on top of the cheese.

5. Use the remaining sauce mixture to spread across the top of the sammis!

6. Cover your 9x13 pan with aluminum foil and place in oven for 20 minutes
7. Remove foil and cut the sammis into individual servings (the 12 rolls) and enjoy!!

These were a hit for us! I paired the sammis with some store bought potato wedges, and it hit the spot :) This is a very versatile recipe in my opinion because it can be used as a simple week night meal when you don't have anything thawed or want something yummy without a lot of effort. Or, as the originator of the recipes suggest, they also make fabulous party snacks for Superbowl (believe it or not its not far away!) or even New Year's Eve parties! It's also kid-friendly sized and they even reheat fairly well! The best part for me? It's a cheap, easy meal! Hope you'll try it, and let me know what you think! Happy Eats!!!

:Next blog recipe coming up- iced coffee made in bulk at home that will last for up to a month in the fridge, and PLUS saves a lot with no need to buy all those fancy coffees from the cafes :D
