You will probably notice a slight theme this week. I’ve been featuring food and drink that would be great for your next get-together, party, baby shower, bridal shower, book club meeting. You get the idea. If you missed the Sparkling Strawberry Punch recipe, be sure to check it out HERE.
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.

Hawaiian Ham and Cheese Rolls
- 1 stick salted butter
- 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbsp brown sugar dark or light
- 1/2 tbsp mustard yellow or dijon
- 1 12 oz package King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls package of 12
- 12 slices black forest ham or 1/2 pound
- 12 slices Monterey Jack Cheese or 4 oz shredded
- raspberry preserves
- 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 (be generous with the glaze), covering well.
- On one side of rolls, add on sliced ham, then top with cheese.
- Put top on rolls and then brush the tops with leftover glaze mixture.
- Place rolls into a baking dish.
- Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes.
Slice and enjoy! Serve rolls with a bit of warmed Raspberry Preserves. Let guests slather a bit of it on their warm rolls. Such a fantastic combination of flavors. 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.
