  • 1 King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls 12- pack
  • 1/2 lb . honey ham sliced
  • 1/4 lb . sliced Provolone cheese
  • 1 tsp . seasoned salt
  • 1 tbsp . dried minced onion
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise


  • Cut across all the rolls lengthwise.
  • Just make one long even cut.
  • Then flip the rolls inside out. (The outsides of the rolls are now going to be your insides!)
  • Start placing the ham down on top of the rolls.
  • Just layering it as even as you can.
  • Now top with the sliced cheese.
  • Sprinkle the seasoned salt and minced onion on top of the cheese layer.
  • Gently place the other half of the rolls on top.
  • Spread the outside of this bread layer with an even but generous layer of mayonnaise.
  • Start heating up your large pan or griddle on medium-high heat.
  • Once your skillet has heated up, place entire sandwich (very carefully) mayonnaise-side down onto the skillet.
  • Then spread mayonnaise on the side that is now on top.
  • Put the lid on and let the one side get golden. (This will also help the ham and cheese warm up.)
  • Once the rolls have started to turn golden brown, flip the whole thing over.
  • I use two spatulas (one on each end) to help me flip it over easily.
  • Put the lid back on (keeping heat on medium) and allow the opposite side to brown and to allow the cheese to finish melting.
  • Place the entire sandwich onto a serving platter or a large plate and slice!


I spread out a long sheet of parchment paper or wax paper on my counter before preparing these. It just makes the clean up easier when I'm done.
