Toasted Ham and Cheese Sandwiches with Onion and Poppyseed Butter

While growing up, these ooey gooey sandwiches were a weeknight staple.  The secret is the butter that is spread on both sides of the bread.  It melts into the cheese and gives the sandwiches a ton of flavor.  Serve with a fresh salad and you have a weeknight dinner that is on the table in 20 minutes.

Toasted Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

6 onion rolls
shaved ham
12 thin slices of Swiss cheese
1 stick of butter, softened
1/4 cup thinly diced or grated onion
2 Tbsp poppy seeds
2 Tbsp mustard

Create the butter mixture by mixing the grated onion, poppy seeds and mustard into the softened butter.

Split your rolls and place, face up, on a large cookie sheet.  Spread a thin layer of the butter mixture on each side followed by a slice of swiss cheese on each side.  Top with Ham.

Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the roll is toasted.

These may sound like your everyday toasted sandwich, but don’t be fooled!  These ham and cheese melts pack lots of flavor and are filling enough for dinner.
