Hot Ham and Pimento Cheese Sandwiches with Hawaiian Rolls and poppy seed glaze
These Hot Ham and Pimento Cheese Sandwiches are perfect for parties!
It’s Masters week! Nothing says “The Masters” like a good pimento cheese sandwich. I have a great recipe for pimento cheese on the blog (I think it is better than Augusta’s version), but I wanted to make something besides a regular pimento cheese sandwich. I came up with these Hot Ham and Pimento Cheese Sandwiches. They are, in a word, AMAZING! SOOO good!!
What is Pimento Cheese?
Pimento cheese is a staple in The South. Every Southerner worth their salt has a pimento cheese recipe. In the simplest terms, pimento cheese is cheese, pimentos and mayonnaise. It makes a great dip, sandwich filling, or topping for burgers and sandwiches. You can put pimento cheese on just about anything and it will be delicious!
How to Make Hot Ham and Pimento Cheese Sandwiches
Hawaiian rolls are stuffed with ham and pimento cheese, topped with a sweet & savory butter poppy seed sauce then baked. How could they be bad?!?! I ate WAY too many of these. You can make your own pimento cheese or use store-bought. If using store-bought, I prefer Palmetto pimento cheese. I’ve tried several brands of pre-made pimento cheese and Palmetto is hands-down the best. You can find it in the refrigerated section at the grocery store near the cream cheese.
These Hot Ham and Pimento Cheese Sandwiches are great for brunch, lunch, dinner, tailgating and watching The Masters. I can promise you we will be eating these one day this week while wishing we were at the golf tournament!
