I had not tried these until fairly recently, but I always thought they looked good.  Well, guess what?  They are better than good, they are fabulous!  Olivia made these and raved about them.  The recipe calls for deli ham but if you have a bit of Easter ham left from the family festivities, this recipe would be a great way to reinvent the ham.  The combination of the Worcestershire sauce combined with the poppy seeds and the Dijon mustard make a killer combination.  That zesty flavor is beautifully balanced by the smooth flavor of the Swiss cheese and the sweetness of the Hawaiian bread.  If you make these and combine them with a bowl of salad or soup, you will have a great, quick meal. 

Olivia and I hope you and your family and friends had a great and blessed Easter.  This is one of our favorite holidays not only because it celebrates the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but because it heralds the warmth and rebirth of Spring.  We hope you feel the same way.  Happy eating!



  • cooking spray 
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds

  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, or more to taste
  • 1 (12 count) package Hawaiian sweet rolls, split, or more as needed
  • 1 pound sliced deli ham, or more as needed
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese, or more as needed


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; cook and stir onion until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Add mustard, poppy seeds, and Worcestershire sauce; cook and stir for 5 minutes.
  3. Arrange the bottoms from each roll in the prepared baking dish. Spoon 2/3 the onion mixture over the roll bottoms. Add ham and Swiss cheese to each roll. Put tops of rolls over the Swiss cheese layer. Brush the remaining 1/3 onion mixture over tops of rolls. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and bake until tops of rolls are lightly browned, 5 to 10 minutes.
