My church does a soup and sandwich dinner for everyone before Wednesday night services during Advent and I served tonight. I made Italian Pasta soup, chocolate chip cookies and the funeral sandwiches someone posted the recipe for a couple weeks ago. They were a HUGE hit! Not only did the men love them, the kids did too. So for whoever it was, thank you very much. And because I know the rules, here's the recipe:

Funeral sandwiches
24 servings
Spray Pan with Pam (like to use two- aluminum throw away pans for easy clean up)
1.5 lb Ham deli or thin- sliced
.5 lb Lorraine Swiss Cheese (any Swiss is good though)
24 dollar buns whole wheat or white
Glaze
2 sticks Butter
4 Tbsp Brown Sugar
2Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2Tbsp Mustard (not dry)
2 Tbsp Poppy seeds
Assemble Ham and Cheese inside each bun.
Marinade with sauce and cover.
Marinade no less than 4 hours and up to overnight.
Bake at 450 degrees Covered for 25 minutes.

I've seen this recipe posted a few times here and I don't quite get it either. I can't imagine marinating bread. What is the consistency when you eat them? Are they a soggy, drippy mess?

Dollar buns are like the ones used for sliders or the hamburgers from White Castle. I was wondering about the marinade too. Look forward to a reply. I would like to make this.

I used party buns from the grocery store bakery. They're smaller than a hamburger bun and 12 fit perfectly in a disposable 9X13 aluminum pan. I made a pan of whole wheat ones and a pan of white ones. And yes, you just pour the marinade over the tops of the buns after they're filled with the ham and cheese. No, it didn't make them soggy, they were very good.

YES!!! I made these a couple of months ago for a potluck birthday party at work. About FIVE people have come up to me in the last few days and asked me to make them again for next week's Christmas party.

BTW, I used the Hawaiian Rolls to make mine.

Yum, I love these too! The bread doesn't get soggy, it gets kind of sticky w/ a little crunch from the brown sugar. I make them with the sweet hawaiian rolls. So good!

How does this work if you are serving them away from home? Heat at home and serve room temp or take them with you and pop them in somebody's oven?

I wonder if these would be good heated up on the grill for tailgaiting.
They just have to be warmed through, right? I think I might put these together for DH to take to the football game this weekend and he can just throw them on the grill until they're heated.

I made them last night in Pampered Chef stoneware baker. Took a little longer than the recommended bake time, but I think that's typical of any dish baked in stoneware. They were really yummy!

Just FYI to the previous poster, you'd need to bake them at home first and then warm them up on the grill if you were tailgating, I think. Since they bake for 25 min @ 450 degrees, I don't know that *just* grilling without baking would do the trick.

okay, I've had this thread open in its own window on my iPad for how long now?? I am going to make these tomorrow! Just want some reassurance from funeral-sandwich-savvy peas. So I cook these and serve right away? Will I need to kind of cut them apart? Will people pick them up and eat like regular sandwiches, or eat with fork and knife? thank you!

OK not stepping on the OP's toes but I followed that link and the orginal is a tad different.
It says ground mustard not just mustard and also to use the King's Hawaiian rolls for the buns. (I didn't know what dollar buns meant, not a term I have heard).

The OP's is larger but the smaller one is good to have to so I went ahead and added it. I can't wait to try these!

Here is the orginal:

Oven Ham Sammies

1 12 count package Kings Hawaiian Rolls
1/2 cup butter melted
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1 tsp poppy seeds
2 tsp onion flakes
1 tsp worcheshire sauce
1 package swiss cheese
12-16oz thin sliced ham

Put ham and cheese on sliced rolls
Mix all other ingredients and spoon over sammies. Let set overnight or several hours
Bake on 350 for 15 min before serving

Do you mind sharing the soup recipe too?


OK, I'm a little late but here's the soup recipe

Italian Pasta Soup
1-1/2 pounds hot Italian sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, cut in strips
1 clove garlic, minced
28 oz. can diced tomatoes
2 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
6 cups water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon worchestershire sauce
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon salt.

*Remove casings from sausage. Cut into 1 inch pieces. Brown in dutch oven. Remove sausage from pan and all but 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute onions, peppers and garlic until tender. Add sausage and remaining ingredients. Simmer uncovered about 15-20 minutes or until pasta is tender.

I made them for Christmas Eve. I think the King Hawaiian Rolls that I bought at Meijer was bigger than "dollar buns" because I had to make more of the glaze to cover one pan.

I made one pan with the recipe that has the brown sugar and one pan with the Oven Ham Sammies recipe (I used onion powder instead of the onion flakes, omitted the poppy seeds and used regular mustard instead of the dry mustard since I was out). Several family members are diabetic so I wanted them to be able to eat some so I made sure they knew which did not have the brown sugar.

Several people asked me for the recipe. I just thought the sandwiches were OK but then my taste buds seemed a little off this holiday season. I hardly ate any sweets and didn't overstuff myself like I usually do because nothing seemed to taste as good as usual.

I agree and I am going to try it both ways, one is I am a diabetic so I need to see how the glaze without brown sugar is (doesn't mean I will like it though. LOL) and the other reason I guess it is omitted from the original recipe is because it is calling for a sweet roll instead of regular buns so it might be overkill?

These were fabulous! We enjoyed these for dinner with a bowl of clam chowder. My boys gobbled them up. To answer the question about soggy bread... they aren't soggy, because they toast up on the hot oven.
(I used the original recipe, halved, to make a pan of 12 sandwiches. Next time I would use a teaspoon of poppy seeds instead of a tablespoon.)
