1packageKing’s Hawaiian Rolls (or other brand of choice) - We prefer this brand - (12 ct).
1packageHam, sliced thin (1 lb)
1packageSwiss or Provolone Cheese
½cupunsalted butter, melted
1bottle optional - poppy seeds
Cut rolls in half, lengthwise and place bottom halves on the bottom of a baking pan. I like to use a bread knife and cut the entire package at one time.
Place your ham and then cheese on top of the bottom half of the rolls.
Add the tops to cover the ham and cheese.
In a small mixing bowl, Mix together the melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, brown sugar and onion powder. Pour sauce over sandwiches. Cover and marinade for 4-24 hours. I personally do mine overnight.
When ready to bake preheat oven to 350°.
Optional - sprinkle poppy seeds over the top and bake for 15 minutes uncovered or until your cheese is melted and buns are golden.
