Funeral sandwiches are the kind of finger foods that are comforting no matter what the situation. These Tropical "Funeral Sandwiches" are the classic baked ham and Swiss sandwiches, but with a Hawaiian spin. King's Hawaiian Rolls are filled with ham, Swiss cheese and pineapple, then glazed in a sweet sauce. The sandwiches are left to marinade overnight, so this is the perfect dish to serve at a potluck or party. Not to mention, they're delicious!

Yields: 12 sandwiches

Preparation Time: 15 min

Chilling Time: 8 hr

Cooking Time: 15 min

Ingredients
  • 1 package (12 count) KING'S HAWAIIAN rolls
  • 1 pound deli sliced ham
  • 1/2 pound Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1 (20-ounce) can sliced pineapple, each slice cut in half
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • dash onion powder
Instructions
  1. Cut each roll in half, lengthwise. Arrange the bottom halves on the bottom of a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan or baking sheet.
     
  2. Layer each roll with ham slices, cheese and a pineapple half. Place the top half of the rolls back on.
     
  3. In a bowl, mix together the butter, Worcestershire, mustard, brown sugar and onion powder. Pour sauce over sandwiches, drenching each one. Cover tightly and marinade at least 4 hours or overnight. 
     
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 15 minutes uncovered, or until cheese is melted and bun tops are golden.

I'd love to try these sandwiches....the glaze sounds delicious! But I think I'll try simmering it, then brushing it on the cut sides of the rolls before assembling and baking. Maybe even simmer the pineapple slices in the sauce too....YUM!

I was going to make these for a birthday party but I wanted to try them on my immediate family first, sort of a trial run. I'm so glad I did. I followed the recipe exactly as it was written. First it said"drenching" then it said, "just cover the tops".... Either way, it turned into a soggy heap. It tasted OK, but not something I would introduce to a houseful of guests.

I made these once and they were delicious. However, they were so messy they had to be eaten with a fork and knife. Did I do something wrong? I followed the recipe exactly and marinated overnight but the sauce just accumulated on the bottom making the bottom of the sandwich too wet to pick up. I will definitely make these again especially if you can "fix" my problem. Thanks!
