Ingredients:             (Yields 15 sandwiches)

  • 15 crusty rolls sliced open
  • 1 lb thinly sliced ham or turkey if you prefer
  • 15 slices of American or Swiss Cheese
  • One foil lined baking sheet (make sure your baking sheet has sides)


  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1/2 cup of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp poppy seeds
  • 3 Tbsp of dried onion flakes
  • 2 Tbsp of yellow mustard

Directions: Slice your rolls open and add two or three pieces of meat along with one piece of cheese (you can do a half slice if you prefer). Once you have all your sandwiches built and lined on the baking sheet you can move on to your marinade.  Melt the two sticks of butter in a microwave safe bowl and add in all the other ingredients. Mix all the ingredients together until they are all incorporated. Once you have the marinade finished spoon or pour it over the tops of the sandwiches making sure that each one has some poppy seeds and onion pieces on the tops.

Let your sandwiches set for 30 minutes to an hour then pop them into your preheated oven (350 degrees) for about 18-20 minutes on the top shelf. You are just warming them through so the cheese melts. You don’t want the bottom of your rolls to burn or the tops getting to hard. Serve at room temp or right out of the oven. I think they are best hot and fresh from the oven. These are great sandwiches to make a head. Just make them and add the marinade then cover tightly with foil and refrigerate until you want to cook them. I have made them up to 2 days a head of my party.
