Poppyseed Ham and Cheese Rolls



As a youngster, I remember thinking these were so cool at covered dish dinners. In my circles, they were typically made using small (1”x2”) dinner rolls that were always delicious and super adorable due to their size and the poppyseed garnish. I still find them to be synonomous with the church potluck and always look for them. This was the first recipe I wanted to curate for this blog, so I began looking for it. I found several variations online, and one promising one in my grandmother’s Pearl Baptist Church cookbook. The online varieties were clear about two things: using King’s Hawaiian Rolls and dijon mustard. Well, I prefer the tiny rolls, so I shrugged off their suggestions until my local Food Lion yielded no tiny rolls. Thus, I took their ~delicious~ advice, and got the King’s Hawaiian Rolls. I had dijon on hand, and usually prefer it, so i used it instead of regular mustard.


Ingredients: poppyseeds, chopped medium onion, Worcestershire sauce, margarine/butter, mustard, sliced swiss cheese, sliced boiled or canned ham, rolls

Step One: mix poppyseeds, onion, Worcestershire, and blend margarine/butter and mustard together. (I not only prefer butter to margarine, as it tastes better and is more natural, but am a butter snob. Having been turned on to Kerrygold Irish Butter, I rarely use anything else. This stuff is delicious and well worth the splurge if you can afford it!)



Step Two: cut rolls.

Step Three: spread mixture on each side of bun.

Step Four: Place generous amount of ham on roll.

Step Five: place cheese on top of ham.

Step Six: put rolls back together and place on foil-lined cookie sheet. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes at 400 F or until cheese has melted.
