Baked Ham & Cheese Sandwiches in Foil

These Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches are a new favorite. Ham sandwiches baked with a savory butter spread slathered on the buns. It reminded me of our favorite Hot Party Ham Sandwiches, but with the yummy sauce on the inside of the sandwich instead of on top.

The sandwiches tasted SOOO good. Seriously delicious. This is our go-to ham sandwich recipe! I absolutely loved that the sandwiches could be made ahead of time and refrigerated until I was ready to bake them. Perfect for summer parties and tailgating this Fall! 

How to Make Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

These sandwiches are super easy to make. Start with making the savory butter by combining butter, onion, Dijon mustard, toasted sesame seeds, and Worcestershire sauce. To assemble sandwiches, spread the butter mixture on the cut surfaces of the bun tops and bottoms. Evenly divide the ham between the buns. Top each pile of ham with two slices of cheese and a bun top. Wrap each sandwich in aluminum foil and place it on a baking sheet and bake.

  • My favorite deli ham is Boars Head Virginia Ham.
  • I used Swiss cheese, but you can use any cheese that you enjoy.
  • Can swap the regular-sized hamburger buns for slider buns. You would need 12 slider buns.
  • These sandwiches are also good on Hawaiian rolls.
  • Sandwiches can be assembled ahead of time and stored, wrapped in foil, in the refrigerator up to twelve hours before baking.

What to Serve with Baked Sandwiches

As I said, these sandwiches were a HUGE hit at our house! We make them at least once a month. They are great for parties, potlucks, and tailgating. We usually serve the sandwiches with chips, coleslaw, and pasta salad. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with these tin foil sandwiches:

  1. My dad is Swedish (I am adopted from Korea) and his mom always made him "Swedish pancakes" which are flour, milk, eggs, baking powder, and a little salt. I am not sure of their exact European origin, but they are different than typical American fluffy pancakes. They are slightly thicker than a crepe and he used to make them for me growing up every Sunday morning. I would enjoy them with a little butter and syrup then place a sausage link on top and roll it up 🙂 Now I make them for my husband and son and I still love them. So simple, but delicious and reminds me of my childhood!

  2. My mother-in-law's lasagna! They live out of state so anytime I make it, it's a nice reminder of them!

  3. My mom's pimento cheese. Hers was totally different than most because she used American cheese instead of cheddar. So creamy and good…

  4. The common denominator in all of my favorite recipes is cheese , whether in the form of cheddar, parmesan, swiss, cream cheese, the list goes on !!! Oh and then there is sour cream, Yum !

  5. My family loves Macaroni & Cheese. I'm required to bring it to every family event. I think I might be disowned if I didn't!

  6. My family loves my Grandmother's lasagna! All that ricotta and mozzarella cheese! It is the perfect Sunday dinner to be shared with the family generation after generation!

  7. My all time favorite cheese dish is mac and cheese the way Mom used to make it, she used a lot of cheddar cheese and it had to be the sharpest you could find, I still make it today but it doesn't seem to taste as good as hers did.
