"Don't settle for ordinary ham and cheese sandwiches when you can make something deliciously different. The horseradish mustard dressing perfectly compliments the ham."

prepared horseradish mustard
To up this recipe to a 5 star rating:
Buy a package of small sandwich rolls (actually they're dinner rolls) that are baked but are not separated. Slice the whole thing in half, horizontally. Spread first w/butter, then w/mustard, then w/mayonnaise. Cover with sliced or chipped ham, and swiss or American cheese. Wrap in foil. Place in 300 degree oven (preheated) for 15-20 minutes. Unwrap. Cool slightly. Then place on wood cutting board and cut with sharp knife. Great w/soup or as a light lunch.
Honestly, I just thought this tasted like any other ham & cheese sandwich I have ever had. It wasn't bad, but with the good reviews I expected something great. I did find they were better days later, out of the freezer, just warmed in the microwave.
Great recipe! I love the combination of ham and swiss so I had to try these. The horseradish definitely gives these a nice "kick". Perfect with a bowl of tomato soup for a quick meal!
Wow These were really good. The sauce was awesome. I made this recipe exactly as is. We decided next time it would be better to use sourdough bread. We are going to try buttering the bread and broiling it to make it toasty.
My oh my, if you only knew. I pretty much HATE the smell of swiss cheese so therefore shy away from it (unless it's a sandwich from a resturant..eg: a rueben). Well I had some extra swiss from a different recipe along with every thing else on hand to make these EXCELLENT sandwiches. I used left over "French rolls to die for" from this site and these were great, my picky 11 year old even wanted more. Thanks Lois!
Great sandwich, although it would taste even better with shaved ham. Wasn't a real big hit with the kids.
I've been making these sandwiches with rave reviews for 10 years with a couple (major) changes...use regular prepared yellow mustard, leave out the dill seed & use a slice of Velveeta processed cheese (cut thick from a loaf) instead of the swiss. You will be making these all the time...trust me!! Oh, & they freeze really well...just wrap each sandwich up in tinfoil after assembling and freeze them in large ziplock bags to pull out for a quick lunch.
This is a super simple but delicious sandwich! I make my own horeseradish mustard (equal parts horseradish and dijon mustard for what I would call spicy, less horesradish if you don't like it as spicy) and spread that on both sides of the inside of the bun. Also I don't use the butter or dill seed and they are still great. Thanks!
