I’m sure you have seen or even tried these delectable tiny versions of Ham and Cheese sandwiches at some point in your life. You can never go wrong with a Hawaiian Role (we go through a package/week at least in the Palmer kitchen!) and when combining the sweat bread with ham and cheese…well, that’s just good sense!
If you have ever seen the movie Chef with Jon Favreau and Sofia Vergara, we can probably agree it inspires the viewer to create and consume Cubano Sandwiches. This recipe is a combination of Hawaiian Rolls and Cubanos, and I must admit is absurdly delicious!
1 package Kings Hawaiian Rolls
6 oz sliced Applewood Smoked Ham
6 oz sliced Havarti Cheese
6 strips of Cooked Bacon, cut into fourths
Sliced Dill Pickels (approxiamtely 3 per sandwich)
2 TBS Worcestershire
1 TBS Brown Sugar
1/2 stick Butter, melted
1 TBS Poppy Seeds
2 tsp Dried Minced Onions
secret ingredient: 2 packets Chic-fil-a™ sauce!!!!
*******I would like to thank my dear friend, Katie Enloe, for introducing me to the spectacular concoction known as Chick-fil-a™ sauce. My life is better because of it!************
1.) Pre-heat oven to 350°
2.) Slice all rolls in half and place bottom half in a 9″ X 13″ ungreased Pyrex dish.
3.) Place half an ounce of ham and half an ounce of cheese (about half a slice of each) on each roll. Add two pieces of bacon and a couple of pickle slices on top. Close sandwich with top half of roll.
4.) Combine melted butter, worcestershire, brown sugar, poppy seeds, onions and Chick-fil-a™ sauce in a small bowl, and stir well. With a pastry brush, brush butter mixture librally over the top of each Hawaiian Roll. Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
