Baked Sandwiches for a Crowd

We all have had it happen one time or another. We need a recipe to feed a lot of people, and we need it now. Either a bunch of your kid's friends show up, or you have family drop by unexpectedly, and they are hungry. How can you be the best host or hostess ever if you don't have a quick, and tasty snack ready to go? Surely, you don't want to break the bank either! There is a great recipe perfect for occasions like these. We call it Sandwich Bake, but we have also seen something similar called "Funeral Sandwiches" (depressing, right?). A lot of times, we have lunch meat and cheese on hand. Grab a package or two of Hawaiian Rolls for the freezer next time you're at the store, and next time, you'll be ready!

A white platter filled with baked ham and Swiss cheese sandwiches on Hawaiian rolls.

 12 hawaiian rolls
 1 lb deli ham, thinly sliced
 ½ lb swiss cheese, thinly sliced
 ½ cup butter (melted)
 3 tbsp worcestershire sauce
 2 tbsp mustard
 2 tbsp brown sugar
 onion powder (to taste)

Cut each roll in half lengthwise, and place in a baking dish. (We have found that the roasters in the 12-Piece Roaster Set work really well for doubling the recipe.) Layer each half with ham, a cheese slice and roll tops.


In a bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients and pour over sandwiches. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for 4-24 hours.


Preheat oven to 350° and bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and tops are golden brown.
