Hip Tips: 

    • You can use spiral ham, deli-sliced ham, or essentially any other deli meat for this idea. If Swiss cheese isn’t a family favorite, consider using sliced provolone or muenster cheese instead!
    • For easy clean up, consider prepping your sheet pan with foil or parchment paper before starting.
    • Prep ahead idea: Compile these a day before, and then stick them in the oven when you’re ready to eat.

This is a must-make recipe idea that won’t disappoint!

I have served these with a few different meat and cheese combos and they never last long! I love how they come out kinda buttery crisp around the edges, yet soft and cheesy in the middle. My kids love these mini sandwiches, and I love how easy they are to make. Enjoy!

    I’ve made these before and they are AWESOME! They are nice to prep the night before, refrigerate overnight, and pop in the oven-great for Christmas day.

  2. A

    My family makes something like this for party’s. And they are delicious!

  3. Ellen H

    These are one of my favorites to make for parties! Just made 48 of them for a teen party this past Sunday and they were gone in minutes. My favorite cheese to use is Havarti!

  4. jeanette

    these look delicious…might have to give them a try

  5. TeresaS

    This might be just what I needed. My son graduates in May and I don’t want to do hotdogs and brats. This would be easy to throw in the oven. Plus with over 100 people it should not be to expensive if I can find some ham on sale after Christmas and start stocking up on the cheese now and freeze them. I might even be able to find clearance buns after Christmas and freeze them as well.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Great idea!

    • Lisa

      Aldi always has the rolls cheaper than any other store.

      • shoop

        Agree! Aldi has all the ingredients including the Hawaiian rolls for a fraction of the cost and ALL of the YUM!

  6. amanda

    I LOVE the Taste of Home version of these sandwiches…uses chive/onion cream cheese instead of mustard. They’re called Sassy Tailgate Sandwiches. So good!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Good idea!

    • justme

      I use the chive/onion cream cheese along with the mustard also and these are AMAZING! Never had anyone not like them. Thanks Lina and Merry Christmas!

    • Mary

      Hi Amanda,

      Do you still bake them with the cream cheese? Thanks!

  7. matt

    We make these and also try some different variations…this past weekend our Buffalo Chicken ones were a hit…we used sliced chicken…provolone, sprinkled with blue cheese crumbles, and the sauce has franks red hot and a dry blue cheese…it is a great snack all day kind of meal…

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Wow! Yum.

  8. christina

    love all the variations too!

  9. Christie

    These are scrumptious! 🙂

  10. Shelly

    I made these for a baby shower once and they were so popular! I think I’ll make them Christmas night with the leftover ham from Christmas lunch 🙂

  11. Jennifer N

    I am definitely making these on Saturday.

  12. Jennifer

    These are so awesome! They are easy and so yummy.

  13. Sarah

    Perfect idea for leftover Christmas ham and the “what to serve for New Years”!!! I love the idea of this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!

  14. Kim

    Wondering if the rolls stay soft when baking that long?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      They are super soft and gooey inside and a little crusty around the outside. So good.

      • Kim

        Thanks for responding. Need to try this one!

        • Kim

          I also noticed the recipe says dried minced onion and then the instructions say onion powder. Can you use either one?

          • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

            Thanks Kim – i actually did use a little onion powder bc i didnt have flakes and it was good. You could use either I’m sure. I will fix post.

            • Kim

              Tried today with onion powder and it was delicious! Thanks so much for the great recipe. I used Franz Hawaiian rolls because they were a bit cheaper.

  15. jennifer

    i want to lick that cheese ozing out the side!

  16. Vivian

    This sounds amazing since I’m addicted to those ham and cheese croissants from local doughnut shops!!

  17. Christie

    Thanks for posting this…kind of ironic I mentioned them to my mom the other day and said I wished I could find the recipe since I moved, I couldn’t find it. Collin to the rescue!You are so good you are a mind reader! 😀

  18. judy

    Also, I have used Boar’s Head honey glazed chicken deli meat!!!!Absolutely, the best.

  19. Rosario Diaz Gonzalez

    I’ve had these before and they are delicious. I had lost the recipe …thank you

  20. Swirlypop

    We call these “ham delights”. Slight variation in ingredients. They are delicious!

  21. meador1031

    I use hot dog buns. I cut then into 3 pieces. With all of that butter, they are still good and much cheaper to make.

  22. Kim

    These sound awesome! Will definitely try them over the holidays! Happy Holidays to all and thanks Collin for all you do!

  23. Heather J.

    Good with turkey and mozzarella too for non ham eaters.

  24. iamoved22

    These are SUPER yummy, and you can make your own variations by changing out the meats and cheeses. Next time I make them I want to try the hawaiian rolls. I always make two huge trays (it’s 4 packages of buns) some with turkey/ham/chicken and cheese and some with a vegetarian lunch meat and cheese. There are a few leftovers but they are always gone the next day. I do not use the poppy seeds.

  25. Sara

    We have family from out of town and I made these to eat with leftover ham today and it was a huge hit. Thanks for the idea!!!

  26. Heather C.

    Thanks so much for this idea!! I made these with Swiss Cheese, Hawaiian Rolls and added pineapple slices! They were a huge hit! Doing it again for Superbowl this weekend! :o) Im hungry already!!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Wow that sounds great!

  27. Sarah

    Awesome super bowl food! So glad we tried them.

  28. Kim

    Made these for my family for the Super Bowl today and they were AWESOME! We absolutely loved them! I used Muenster instead of Swiss as 2 don’t like the Swiss and they were ooey and gooey and just delish! Thanks for the recipe!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Wonderful news! Thanks

  29. mel

    Made this for a playoff party last weekend and they were a huge hit! Making a double batch today!! I think the ingredient list is incorrect though as it says to use 1 Tablespoon dried minced onion, yet in the directions, it says to mix with onion powder. Those are 2 totally different things, so I went with the powder. Just didn’t want someone else confused.

  30. Carrie bishop

    I don’t have any Dijon mustard, can I substitute anything else?

    • Denise

      I actually use honey mustard. My family is not a fan of dijon.

    • Amanda

      I normally use dried mustard and mix it in with the butter, minced onion and Worcestershire sauce.

    • Bex

      I’ve made them successfully with regular yellow prepared mustard.

  31. Denise

    We make these every Christmas. Have also done these with turkey and cheese, sloppy joe and american cheese, and a friend is trying them with a reuben filling. Always a hit.

  32. Janet

    These are also called Funeral Sandwiches. So yummy and great for a crowd.

  33. Gigi

    Thank you! Perfect timing finding this post! I Just popped these into the oven. I had a bunch of Hawaiian rolls I needed to use. I added cream cheese to the inside top of each bun and used regular mustard since we don’t have Dijon.

  34. Amanda

    We love these sandwiches!! We use honey ham and smoked provolone cheese. So, so good!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh Yum! I’m glad you enjoyed <3

  35. Amy

    You read my mind.. I was looking these up to make at my husbands big 50th luau party and Great news you can prep ahead and pop them in the oven the day of! Now I’m sold that this is what I need to serve; Hawaiian ham and cheese sandwiches!🥳👏👏

  36. KARIZMA

    Reading the comments, some were from 2014 ! These are super easy and delicious!!

  37. Josie

    Minced onion or onion powder? Ingredients have minced onion but instructions say onion powder. Which is better? TIA

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Either one will work. If you use onion powder, you won’t need a full tablespoon. Just a few shakes will do, Josie!

  38. hillcrest05

    Made these last spring and realized while making them that I didn’t have minced onion. I used Everything but the Bagel. Won’t make them without it again! Game changer!

  39. sherry

    I’m making both ham and chicken sliders. Thanks for sharing.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum! Thanks for sharing ❤️

  40. Kathy

    Hi! These are awesome sandwiches! Last time I made with Boar’s Head deli tavern ham and smoked Gouda from the deli. They were amazing!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow! That sounds perfect 👌 thanks Kathy!

  41. KetaCar

    Been making these since I found this recipe many years ago here on H2S! Thank you all for enriching my life in so many areas 💜

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! Thanks for sharing ❤️

  42. Jenni

    What if your family hates mustard and worstershire?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Maybe just skip those and add a little garlic powder.

  43. Shelby

    Made these today and they are great!! Can’t wait to make them again 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      oh nice! Thanks for sharing Shelby!

  44. Cray

    Awesome! Made this recipe today with some leftover ham I cooked for dinner yesterday. Everyone in the family loved it.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh hooray!! I’m so glad and thanks for sharing 👍
