These Brown Sugar Ham Rolls are off the charts! SO delicious!! The brown sugar glaze on the rolls is amazing!
The key to these rolls is to get the deli counter to slice your ham super thin - you actually want it shaved, falling apart thin. This is a must. I used Sister Schubert rolls. The secret to easily reassemble the rolls, remove one of the outer rolls and set aside before slicing the rolls in half. This will help line up the top and bottoms easily. Genius!
If you don't have access to Sister Schubert rolls (bless you), I am sure you can substitute any precooked dinner rolls.
These rolls can be made ahead of time and frozen for later. These are great for tailgating and even a quick lunch or dinner.
Brown Sugar Ham Rolls
adapted from Trois Rois
- 1/2 lb shaved deli ham (I prefer Boars Head Virginia Ham)
- 4-5 slices swiss cheese (I prefer Sargento's Ultra Thin)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 Tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 pan frozen Sister Schubert dinner rolls, thawed
Preheat oven to 350.
In a saucepan, melt butter, brown sugar and dijon mustard. Stirring continuously. Remove from heat.
Remove rolls from pan. Using a sharp serrated knife, slice rolls in half. **Tip - to easily reassemble the rolls, remove one of the outer rolls and set aside. This will help line up the top and bottoms easily.**
Brush the sugar mixture on the cut sides of the rolls (don't forget the roll you removed). Place swiss cheese on top of sugar mixture. Top with ham.
Place the top half of the rolls on top of the ham, lining up the empty space. Replace the roll in the empty space.
Cover pan with foil. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 8 minutes.
