Funeral Sandwiches

Otherwise entitled “Putting the FUN in Funeral!”

Wait, was that tasteless? Well, these sandwiches aren’t!

(See what I did there? What a segue! I really should be in journalism, right?)

I saw these sandwiches on Pinterest and immediately remembered eating them when my grandmother would have Ladies’ Parties. Well, I’d eat them after the party of course, since I was a kid and not a Lady.

My grandmother did not call them funeral sandwiches, but I think it’s a good name.

Look at that picture (not taken by me)! Awesome, right?

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients for the sandwiches:

  • 24 King’s Hawaiian Rolls
  • 24 slices deli slice Honey Ham
  • 24 slices deli slice Swiss cheese
  • Mayonnaise

For the glaze:

  • 2 sticks butter, melted
  • 4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon finely minced onion (or 2 tsp. dried minced onion)
  • Poppy seeds, for sprinkling

Instructions

1. Cut the rolls in half and spread the insides lightly with mayonnaise. Lightly oil or spray baking pan with Pam. Line the bottom of a baking pan with the bottoms of the rolls. Layer the ham slices, then cheese and place the top half back on.

2. In a medium bowl mix together the melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, brown sugar and onion. Pour the entire concoction over the buns, drenching each one. Sprinkle each sammie with poppy seeds. Cover tightly and marinade anywhere from 4-24 hours.

3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes, uncovered or until cheese is melted and bun tops are a bit golden. Serve warm!
