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! ;-}


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
1-1/2 tsp. worchestershire sauce
1 - 2 Tb. brown sugar
1 tsp. mustard (dijon or yellow)

Raspberry Jam, 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 too. You won't be sorry!!!! I'm guessing you could use a little cranberry sauce too. 

If you're not adding the pineapple slice, you can try adding some pineapple juice to the sassy sauce.
