Hot Colby Ham Sandwiches

This recipe has been on our "to try" list for a while now. We've never made it as a group, but Tristy made it on her own once. I don't have the source.

Hot Colby Ham Sandwiches

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 15 dinner rolls (about 3-inch diameter), sliced
  • 15 slices Colby cheese
  • 15 thin slices deli ham (about 1 pound)
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

In a small bowl, combine the butter, mustard, onion, poppy seeds and sugar. Place roll bottoms, cut side up, in an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Top each with Colby cheese, ham and mozzarella. Drizzle with half of the butter mixture. Replace roll tops. Drizzle with remaining butter mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: 15 servings.


Here are instructions from another recipe that calls for similar sandwiches to be wrapped individually in foil.... Bake at 350° for 6-10 minutes or until cheese is melted, or freeze for up to 2 months. To use frozen sandwiches: Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until cheese is melted.

These sandwiches got mixed reviews. Be sure to check out the comments.


  1. I tried this recipe on my own this past Thanksgiving. I was looking for something quick, easy & inexpensive with my family coming into town--specifically to work around Black Friday shopping. My family loved these sandwiches! They were really good warm, but would also work perfectly for bagged lunches...just pop into the lunch box in the morning & they will be perfectly thawed by lunch time!

  2. Overall these sandwiches good, not great. We made them individually wrapped and my batch did not have mustard (I hate the stuff!) and we didn't add the mozzarella cheese- otherwise the recipe was followed.

    I did not care for the combo of the onion with the sugar. If I made these again, I would leave out the sugar and maybe use garlic instead of onion.

  3. My husband and I loved these sandwiches! An odd combo, but great taste. Especially good when heated in your oven.
