AMAZING! Hawaiian Ham Sandwiches

After seeing this simple recipe at Brandie's The Country Cook, I decided to kick it up a notch and add fresh pineapple...

May I Just say...TO.DIE.FOR!  
(For all of you that know our Country Cook Brandie, you know that's nothing new=) 

I'm not a big lover of sandwiches, but I gobbled these down so quickly! The sauce on the inside and outside...made with butter(!), worchestershire and a little bit of brown sugar and mustard, added a magnificent flavor that can't be beat.  

I used leftover Easter ham and added fresh pineapple, but you can certainly use deli ham and no pineapple, if you prefer.

Whatever floats your boat...(as we dream we're in Hawaii!!=) 

No doubt, you'll enjoy every single bite.  What a wonderful lunch idea.
Or dinnertime...or bedtime snack.  Or PARTY dish too!

You'll have a tough time resisting these nuggets of YUM! I can't wait to use ham from the freezer to make them again soon. 

I could NOT believe HOW MUCH a bit of raspberry jam added to this scrumptious sammy...OVER-THE-MOON AWESOME!

I love any recipe that you can choose to make a lot of, or just a few...

You're welcome! ;-}


HAWAIIAN HAM SANDWICHES 

1 pkg. 12 Hawaiian Rolls 
regular or deli ham
(Use about 1/2# deli ham for 12 rolls)
cheese slices of choice 
(I used pepper jack..monterey would be awesome too)
fresh (or canned) pineapple slices 

Sauce: (for 12)

1 stick butter
(I used 6 Tb.)
1-1/2 tsp. worchestershire sauce
1 - 2 Tb. brown sugar
1 tsp. mustard (dijon or yellow)

Raspberry Jam or Cranberry Sauce, optional

Preheat oven to 350. 

Slice rolls in half (can do them all at once)
In small bowl, combine sauce ingredients; brush on both insides of rolls.
(Be sure to save some for the top). 

Place meat then cheese on one side of rolls; add pineapple, then top with other half. Baste remaining sauce over top of rolls. 

Place in baking dish; cover with aluminum foil.
Heat for 20 - 25 minutes until warmed and cheese melts. 

Don't forget to add that special dab of raspberry jam (or cranberry sauce) too. You won't be sorry!!!!


If you're not adding the pineapple slice, you can try adding some pineapple juice to the sassy sauce. (about 1 Tb.)
