HAWAIIAN PARTY ROLLS
This next recipe came to me by way of a co-worker a few years ago. I thought I had something truly unique and top secret. It turns out...not so much. I would show up with these at various parties and someone else would show up with them too. But you know it's gotta be a good recipe if lots of folks talk about it and share it with friends. It's very easy to throw together and folks really do rave about them. So really, you can never have too many.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
- salted butter
- Worcestershire sauce
- brown sugar (dark or light)
- mustard (yellow or dijon)
- King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
- thinly sliced ham
- Monterey Jack cheese
- raspberry preserves
HOW TO MAKE GLAZED HAM AND CHEESE HAWAIIAN PARTY ROLLS:
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. In a small pot, melt stick of butter with Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and mustard until thoroughly melted and combined.
Meanwhile, take rolls out of package and slice through all the rolls (while still attached), cutting them in half horizontally. Brush the glaze mixture onto both sides of the rolls, covering well. The glaze is what takes this over the top, so don't be stingy. Just leave a little to brush on the tops.
Place bottom half of rolls into a baking dish. On one side of rolls, add sliced ham, then top with cheese.
Put top on rolls and then brush the tops with leftover glaze mixture.
Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for about 25 minutes (until cheese is melted.)
Slice and serve!
Put out some warmed raspberry preserves and let guests slather a bit of it on their rolls. It is so unbelievably good.
Cook's Notes: I have been known to add a bit of pineapple juice to the glaze mixture when I have it on hand. Pineapple pairs so nicely with ham. Add about a tablespoon. Also, feel free to use any type of ham/cheese combo. that you really enjoy.
