Description

Who’s interested in a guaranteed crowd-pleasing, drippy, cheesy, delicious hot sandwich recipe? (Anyone? . . . Anyone?)

The key to these sandwiches is the onion butter. Amazingly delish! Your taste buds are going to thank you for making it. Makes 8 regular or 16 dinner roll sized sandwiches. Recipe can be doubled.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SANDWICHES:
  • 8 whole Sandwich Rolls (or 16 Dinner Rolls)
  • ½ pounds Ham, Any, Sliced Thin Or Chopped
  • ½ pounds Cheese, Any Variety That Melts Well
  • _____
  • FOR THE ONION BUTTER:
  • 8 Tablespoons Salted Butter
  • ½ cups Finely Minced Onion
  • 3 Tablespoons Prepared Mustard, Any (the More Flavorful, The Better)
  • 1 teaspoon Poppy Seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

Preparation

To make the onion butter, combine ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat gently just until the butter is melted and all the ingredients are well combined. Cool to a spreadable consistency.

To prepare sandwiches, place roll bottoms, cut side up on a sheet pan. Spread some onion butter evenly onto each of the halves (use about half of the onion butter for this step), top with 1/2 the cheese, next add all the ham, now add remaining cheese, and end with the rest of the onion butter. Top with the roll tops, cover pan with foil, and heat in a 300F oven for 10-15 minutes until the sandwiches are heated through and the cheese melts.

Note: Sandwiches can be assembled up to 2 days in advance, but store them in an airtight container to control the smell of raw onions in your fridge.

These were soooo good! I used thick slices of leftover Christmas ham and they were awesome! It didn’t even feel like we were eating leftovers.

I have some anti onion people in my house so used onion powder instead of actual onions and they still turned out really yummy. My kids didn’t love the mustardiness (that’s a word right?) because they don’t like mustard but my husband and I loved them. These may make an appearance at our annual SuperBowl party.

Oh my goodness! These are soooo good! The onion butter really does put these over the top. I made extra to use on grilled ham and cheese sandwiches (and anything else I can think of). So gooey and cheesy, even my picky 3 year old ate 2 of these!
