Ham Rolls

Do you need a recipe for all that leftover Christmas ham?  Make my Aunt Debbie’s Ham Rolls.  This recipe can be made ahead, refrigerated, and baked for breakfast. It can be easily put together for a quick snack, party appetizer, picnic, or even a Super Bowl item.

To make good use of any leftover ham, cut it off the bone and place it in a food processor.  Lightly pulse until ham is chopped into fine pieces.  If chopped ham is not to be used right away, fill Zip-Lock bags with 2 cup portions and freeze them.  Use frozen ham later to make ham salad, or this recipe.

  • 2 packages twin rolls (these come in rectangular foil pans) cut in half  lengthwise
  • 1 1/4 sticks melted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons mustard
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoons Worchestershire
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 cups chopped ham
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

Mix the melted butter, mustard, Worchestershire, poppy seeds, and onion powder together in a small bowl.  Using a serrated knife, cut each pan of rolls through the middle lengthwise and remove the top half and set aside.  Place the bottom half back in the foil pan. Brush the bottom halves with the melted butter mixture.  Put one cup of chopped ham on each lower half, then add 1 cup of Swiss cheese to each pan.  Place top halves back on and brush tops of rolls with any remaining butter mixture. Bake in 350 degree preheated oven for 20-30 minutes or until tops of rolls are golden brown and cheese is melted.
