Roasted broccoli is the perfect side for these sammies!

Today my kid cook did more sampling of ingredients than helping.  Oh well, my kid cook in training was close by, learning a lot! 🙂

How can I complain about him stealing my ingredients when it means my 2 year old is eating raw broccoli?!

Goofball!

"Cheeeeeese!" he says, while holding cheese. Haha, again, Goofball!

“Can’t wait to get up there and help, Ma!”

Ingredients:

  • ¼ c butter (½ stick)
  • 1 c diced onion
  • 3 T stadium mustard
  • 3 T Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 T poppy seeds
  • 12 pack King’s Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • ½ pound shaved ham
  • 6 Swiss cheese slices

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Melt butter in skillet.
  3. Add diced onion and cook 2-3 minutes.
  4. Stir in mustard and Worcestershire.
  5. Add poppy seeds and simmer while preparing rolls.
  6. Cut the rolls in half (you don’t have to separate them first).
  7. Place the bottoms in a baking dish.
  8. Spread ¾ of the sauce on the bottoms of the buns.
  9. Top with shaved ham, then cheese, then the tops of the buns.
  10. Lastly, slather the remaining sauce on top of the buns.
  11. Cover and bake for about 20 minutes.

Here are some ideas to get your “kid cook” involved with this recipe:

  • Have her help spread the sauce on the bottoms of the rolls.
  • She can help assemble by layering the ham, cheese, roll tops, and additional sauce.
  • Talk about fractions – ¾ of the sauce versus ¼ of the sauce.  Talk about other things that are commonly divided into four parts.  Examples: hours, dollars, etc.
