Guy loves his cooking magazines, and recently picked up a copy of a Better Homes and Gardens’ One-Pan Recipes in the check-out lane. The cover of the magazine featured this pan of ham and cheese melts, made with Hawaiian rolls, brushed with melted butter, chopped shallots, parsley, and garlic, and browned until melty and delicious. We made them for a weeknight dinner and then spotted them at the book club holiday party – they’re really great for any occasion.
Recipe from Better Homes and Gardens.
- Cooking spray
- 12 Hawaiian dinner rolls
- 12 oz. thinly or shredded sliced ham
- 6 oz. thinly sliced white cheddar cheese
- 1 5.2 oz. container semisoft cheese with garlic and herbs, like Boursin
- 6 Tbs. melted butter
- 2 Tbs. finely chopped shallot
- 1 Tbs. finely snipped parsley
- 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
- 1 clove garlic, minced
Preheat oven to 350º. Spray a 13x9-inch baking dish or sheet pan with cooking spray. Without separating the rolls, place them on a cutting board and use a bread knife to slice them in half, horizontal to the cutting board. Place the bottoms of the rolls in the pan.
Layer the bottoms of the rolls with the ham and cheese. Spread the cut side of the roll tops with the semi-soft cheese. Place the roll tops, cut side down, on top of the ham and cheese.
Combine the melted butter, shallots, parsley, mustard, and garlic in a small bowl. Pour over the sandwiches.
Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake 10 to 15 minutes more or until the cheese is melted and the roll tops are lightly browned.
