Poppy Seed Ham Delights....

I fixed this tasty snack for my family's Thanksgiving feast and was excited because we accidently left a container of them in the fridge during the big meal and thought we could take them home with us! As we were getting ready to leave and were pulling everything together, Grandma accidently set them out on the table- I swear within 5 minutes the whole container was gone! I promise these are great tasting- I even had "sauce" left-over that I refridgerated and put on a hot ham and cheese sandwich at a later date- yummy!

  • 2 pk Dinner Rolls- Do not separate individual rolls!
  • 3/4 lb. very thin sliced deli ham
  • 1 1/2 cups grated baby swiss cheese (or you can use the deli sliced if you prefer)
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) margarine
  • 2 T sugar
  • 2 T prepared yellow mustard
  • 2 T finely grated onion
  • 2 T poppy seeds

Slice top half of rolls off and lay aside. Repeat with second package of rolls. (It is easiest to slice the rolls in half if you invert them in the pan. Using a serrated knife, use the top edge of the pan as a guide to make a nice neat cut. Re-invert the rolls and remove the top half!) Layer ham on each set of roll bottoms, then sprinkle with cheese. In a medium saucepan, melt margarine and sugar over medium low heat. Add mustard, onion, and poppy seeds. Pour half of this mixture over the ham and cheese. Replace the top half of the rolls. Use a sharp knife to separate the individual rolls, cutting through all the layers. Pour the remaining poppy seed margarine mixture over the tops. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350°F.
