Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches with Onion Butter

makes 8 kaiser rolls, 16 dinner rolls, or 1 loaf of french bread

Printable Recipe


  • 8 large or 16 small rolls (or a long loaf of french bread)

  • 1/2 pound shaved ham (excellent quality please)

  • 1/2 pound your favorite sliced cheese (any cheese that will melt well)

Onion Butter: 

  • 8 tablespoons salted butter (yes, salted)

  • 1/2 cup very finely minced onion

  • 3 tablespoons prepared mustard (Dijon or spicy brown)

  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds

  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


  1. To make the onion butter, combine ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat gently just until the butter is melted and all the ingredients are well combined; cool to a spreadable consistency.

  2. To prepare sandwiches, place roll bottoms, cut side up on a sheet pan.

  3. Spread 1/2 the onion butter evenly onto the halves, top with 1/2 the cheese, next add all the ham, now add remaining cheese, and end with the rest of the onion butter.

  4. Replace roll tops, cover pan with foil, and heat in a 300F oven for 10-15 minutes until the sandwiches are heated through and the cheese melts.


  • Sandwiches can also be wrapped in foil and placed in a slow cooker on high heat until cheese melts, about an hour.
