Tailgate Food

When I was in high school, my best friend Lindsay's parents loved making us snacks, and constantly had deliciously unhealthy food laying around their house. I am convinced that they wanted us to gain 50 lbs before high school ended, because every time I went over there, without fail, I would leave with a stuffed stomach. One of the recipes her mom made was the absolute best mini ham sandwiches ever, so these days I like to make it every once in a while for my friends. Since we were tailgating for a Braves game this weekend, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make them. Let me tell you, they went fast.

The recipe:
1 lb or more ham
1 package swiss cheese
2 packages Hawaiian Rolls
1 stick butter (room temp)
2 teaspoons poppyseed
3 teaspoons dijon mustard
1 teaspoon worchester sauce
Mix butter, poppyseed, dijon and worchester in bowl
Spread evenly over rolls, and top with ham and cheese
Cover in tin foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes

If you decide that you don't need both batches, wrap one up in tin foil and freeze it before baking. Then pull it out whenever, defrost, and bake!
These are perfect for tailgates and SO easy to make! Football season is around the corner, people :)



  1. Ahhh, can't for football! My mom makes those mini ham sandwiches and they are so good!

  2. Those are delicious - maybe you could say that instead of the freezer, any extras can go straight into the fat kid's belly? Just saying, I can remember a few "dinners" aka appetizers where those were demolished :)

  3. I love that both of the comments so far are from Clemson grads... we know how to tailgate :)

  4. oooh love love love this idea! I never would have thought to have Worcestershire sauce in there!

  5. Yum!! I love hawaiian bread, and I will be doing a lot of tailgating this fall! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  6. That is SO my kind of cooking...wrap it in some foil and you're good to go! I may have to try this, in some variation. ☺
