Funeral Rolls

Tonight I want to share a really quick sandwich recipe for you if you are on a camping trip or just for an easy appetizer for friends. You prepare EVERYTHING the day before and store it in the refrigerator… then when ready, take it out and bake for about 15 minutes… that’s it! These are called “FUNERAL ROLLS” … I know it’s a horrible name but someone thought it up because they are perfect to take to families who have suffered a loss. However you choose to use them, everyone will love them! Tonight, after a long day of driving, dinner is practically done and Mummy and Daddy are having a light supper of these tiny sandwiches with a little potato salad… try them for yourself!
*1 package (12 count) King’s Hawaiian Rolls
*1 pound Ham, sliced thin (we used some delicious thick sliced Virginia Ham given to us by a friend and it was wonderful)
*Swiss or Provolone Cheese (thinly sliced) we didn’t have this so we used shredded Mozzarella and it was still delicious
*1/2 cup unsalted melted butter
*3 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
*2 Tablespoons mustard
*2 Tablespoons brown sugar
*1/4 teaspoon onion powder
*optional, poppyseeds
Cut each roll in half lengthwise and place the bottom halves in a baking pan. Layer each half with ham slices and cheese and place the top half of the roll back on.
In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, worcestershire sauce, mustard, brown sugar and onion powder. With a large spoon, evenly spoon this sauce over each one of the little sandwiches, drenching each one. Cover tightly with foil and marinate for 24 hours.
When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle tops with poppy seeds if desired and bake uncovered for about 15 minutes or until tops are golden brown and cheese is melted. ENJOY!!!
I PROMISE YOU, EVERYONE WILL LOVE THESE! Mummy got this recipe from her Book Club Group!

      They really are soooo delicious! We have heard them referred to by many names but the recipe that we got was called “Funeral Rolls” because it was a comfort dish that
      you could take to a grieving family’s house. But whatever they are called… they are WONDERFUL and so very easy to make!
