Recipe-Hawaiian Roll Sandwiches

I found another recipe on my Pinterest board that after I tried it, I knew I would use it over and over.

It is a fast and easy sandwich recipe to feed a lot of hungry people.

That would be my crew ūüôā

(Here is the link to the original recipe.)


1 onion, chopped fine

1 cube of butter

3 tablespoons of Dijon Mustard

2 teaspoons of Worcestershire Sauce (oops not in photo)

3 tsp of poppy seeds

Package of King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

Favorite pre-sliced cheese (I chose Provolone)

Favorite deli-style lunch meat (I chose corned beef)




1) Preheat your oven to 350

2) Mince up your onion, as fine as you can cut.

3) Melt your butter in a skillet and add your minced onion.  Cook for a couple of minutes until the onion is getting soft.

4) Add your 3 Tbsp of Dijon Mustard and 2 tsp of Worcestershire Sauce and 3 tsp of poppy seeds. Simmer until onions are cooked through.


5) Leave the onion mixture and take out the entire mass of rolls to cut.

Using a long bread knife or whatever knife you have, cut horizontally through the whole pack of rolls leaving you a top and a bottom. This is kind of tricky so be careful and don’t cut yourself!



6) Next, put your bottom layer in a pan (cookie sheet or 9×13 pan). Then lather the bottom layer with your onion mixture. (Reserve about 1/4 of the mixture for the very end.)


7) Now layer your meat and cheese over the onion mixture.



8) Lastly, add the rest of the reserved onion mixture and place the top part of the rolls over everything.



9) Cover with foil and put in your 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or when cheese is good and melted.

10) When finished, take out, cool a bit, and then slice down the roll lines.


My family ate these up and loved the different, unique flavor of the onion butter mixture with the melted meat and cheese rather than a plain ole meat and cheese on a dry roll.

I liked them because I could make 24 tasty little sandwiches in a short amount of time.

Next time I will try turkey with swiss cheese, or maybe ham with cheddar!

You could really get creative with this recipe.

  1. I have had these, but I tried the ham and cheddar cheese. One word – divine!

  2. The sandwiches are very tasty. Served these at my daughters baby shower. The only change I will do next time is instead of leaving the rolls together and slicing I will separate each roll, slice and then follow recipe as written. I found them difficult to cut into individual rolls after baking, they do not cut neatly into uniform individual rolls. I will definitely make these again with this one adjustment.

  3. Could I make this the day before and put them in the fridge over night?
