Shaved Ham & Cheese Party Rolls

Our GO-TO party food. Perfect for impromptu guests or when you need to feed a hungry crowd! Double up, these freeze well and make great school lunches.


  • King’s Hawaiian sweet rolls (I buy packages of 12)
  • Black Forest ham, shaved thin
  • Havarti cheese
  • 12 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • splash of Worcestershire
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard


  1. Remove the Hawaiian rolls from the package keeping them in one piece. Slice through rolls horizontally so you have two large pieces — a top and bottom — of rolls.
  2. Spread a thin schmear of mayo on the bottom half and layer with cheese slices and shaved ham.
  3. Add the top of the rolls.
  4. In a small bowl, melt the butter. Stir in a splash of Worcestershire, minced onions, poppy seeds, and Dijon mustard. Brush butter mixture on top of rolls.
  5. Bake at 325 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes until cheese is melted and tops of rolls are golden brown.
