Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches with Onion Butter
makes 16 dinner roll or 8 kaiser roll sandwiches - recipe doubles well
8 large or 16 small rolls
1/2 pound ham, any
1/2 pound cheese, any that melts well
8 tablespoons salted butter (yes, salted)
1/2 cup finely minced onion
3 tablespoons prepared mustard (dijon, spicy brown, grainy... ooooh)
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
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.
To prepare sandwiches, place roll bottoms, cut side up on a sheet pan. 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. 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.
Note: Sandwiches can be assembled up to 2 days in advance, but store them in an airtight container to control the smell of raw onions in your fridge.
