This is a recipe that I received from the wife of one of our house builders. Ham and cheese is so basic and so good, but add the butter, onion, poppy seed, and mustard and it is tangy and delicious. The great thing about this recipe is that it freezes well. You can make a whole bunch of these sandwiches, wrap them in foil, put them in a plastic freezer bag and pull them out as needed. We've made a bunch of these and took them on ski vacations with us. Then all you have to do is bake them in the oven, make a side salad, and pour a glass of wine. Easy sneezy.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup minced onion
2 tablespoons poppy seed
2 tablespoons country Dijon mustard
8 hard roll
16 slices deli ham of your choice
8 slices Swiss cheese
Mix butter, minced onion, poppy seed, and mustard together. Spread on both sides of roll. Add two slices of ham and one slice of Swiss cheese. Wrap each sandwich in foil.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. These sandwiches can be frozen prior to baking. Makes 8 sandwiches.
