Quick & Easy Ham & Cheese Rolls

We are always looking for a
for Christmas morning.
Something to tide
over until we can
get to the

One of the blogs I visit
belongs to
Follow the above link
to meet Judy and
see the original recipe.

When I saw it
the other day
I thought it would be a
great "filler"
for Thanksgiving morning

I stole Judy's picture
because the
pigs people that were here
gobbled (get it-Thanksgiving-gobbled?;>)

We changed the basic recipe
up just a tad.
We used King Hawaiian rolls,
covered them with the
melted butter and poppy seed
(no mustard because we have
some NON-mustard eating people here-
crazy things).
I topped them with sliced ham
and sharp cheddar
and topped them with
melted butter and poppy seeds.

So-if you are having one of those
"rushed mornings"
and have people to feed
try these!
These are guaranteed to
be a crowd pleaser.
Trust me-
I made a 2nd pan for Day 2!

Recipe as I made it~

I package King Hawaiian rolls,
sliced in half lengthwise.
Place bottom half of rolls 
 in a 9x13 greased pan.
Melt 1/2 cup BUTTER
(Hey we DO live in Wisconsin)
Stir in poppy seeds to taste.
Brush half this mixture over
bottom half of rolls.
Top rolls with sliced ham
and layer each roll with
a piece of sharp cheddar cheese.
Put top of rolls over bottom ones.
Brush top with remaining
melted butter and poppy seeds.

Bake @ 350º for about 20 minutes.
Cut apart and devour eat.

Make sure to go visit

Thank You!

I can send you several different things you can do like this that you can make the day/ evening before and then micro wave whenever anyone wants them, too. You won't believe the concoctions I have come up with. I will start taking photos and do a post soon- before Christmas!

Looks good, but this New Jersey girl needs to know -- what are Hawaiian rolls?
Do they wear hula skirts?
Coconut bras?
Never heard of them!
