Have A Sandwich

Whether you have it on white or wheat with crust on or off or maybe you like it with a bit of mayo or mustard. However you like it you can have it...... a Sandwich.

The only thing needed to eat a sandwich is your hands and mouth. The sandwich has been around for centuries but popularized during the 1700s. It was John Montagu the fourth Earl of Sandwich that ordered beef between slices of bread. Montagu wanted to both play cards and eat. While that was the beginning the sandwich explosion it is still very popular.

A sandwich is anything placed between two slices of bread. Many times we think of meat in a sandwich but it can be a number of different ingredients. By definition the qualifiers of a sandwich include:

  • 2 exterior pieces of bread or bread like product
  • primarily horizontal in structure
  • portable
  • contains more than just one condiment 

24 white dinner rolls
 24 pieces honey ham
 24 small slices Swiss cheese
 1/3 cup mayonnaise
 1/3 cup miracle whip

Poppy seed sauce:
 1 Tablespoon poppyseeds
 1 1/2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
 1/2 cup butter , melted
 1 Tablespoon minced onion
 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and miracle whip. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet. Place very close together.
In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients. Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. You do not have to use all of the sauce! Just use enough to cover the tops. Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes or until tops are slightly brown and crispy. Serve warm. Note: Sandwiches can be assembled ahead of time. I don't like to do it more than a day ahead because they can get soggy from the mayo mixture.
