ham and cheese sammies easy brunch idea

When I first had these sandwiches, I knew immediately that they were our new family go to meal. These are a great brunch idea because you can make a lot of them very quickly and without dirtying a lot of dishes. When I use them at bridal or baby showers they are always a conversation piece. They are amazing. I make them for dinner pretty often My kids (well 2 out of the 3) love them as well, which is always a win in my book.

Ham and Cheese Sliders…Sammies…Sandwiches…Delicious

These are called so many different things, sammies…..ham and cheese sliders….ham sliders…the list goes on. I love the name Sunday Sammies though because Sundays for me are when I want to relax and spend time with my little family. I don’t want to be slaving away in the kitchen (although sometimes it is nice to do some of the fancier cooking when my husband is home to help with the kids) but these are a no stress meal that I can do right when we are ready to eat. Put some chips and dip or veggies and dip with them and they are done. SO easy!

True 30 Minute Meal

Did I mention they are easy…I mean the fact they take 20 minutes to finish says EASY to me. These can easily be made ahead of time and then put in the oven right when you need them. And surprisingly enough, freezing them works pretty darn good. I usually make a full batch and then freeze the leftovers into smaller groups for my husband to take to work for lunch.


Ham and Cheese Sunday Sammies
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 32 rolls
  • 1 lb thin sliced ham
  • 1 lb thin sliced Swiss cheese- cut in half (corner to corner to make triangles)
  • 2 packages of Kings Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (32 total)
  • Miracle Whip
  • Dressing:
  • 1 stick (8 tbsp) melted butter
  • 1½ tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1½ tbsp mustard
  • ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp minced onion
  1. Without breaking the rolls apart, slice each set in half.
  2. Spread miracle whip lightly on each side***
  3. Lay the ham down so roughly one piece of ham covers two rolls. Each section of roll should take about 8-10 slices of ham
  4. Lay the cheese triangles on top of the ham, about 1 slice per two rolls.
  5. Put top of rolls back on.
  6. Top with dressing. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 15 minutes
***You can use mayonnaise instead but it will not taste the same. The Miracle Whip adds a tangy flavor that the mayonnaise doesn't have. BUT it will work still.
