"From Real Women of Philadelphia 2010 Host Caryn Ross: Hawaiian bread rolls provide a subtly sweet contrast to the savory flavors of ham and PHILADELPHIA Chive and Onion Cream Cheese. The sandwiches are melt-in-your-mouth good after they come out of the oven." — PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese

Great recipe and super easy to make.
My only suggestion is that if you made them beforehand and cover them overnight or a few hours, to use foil or plastic wrap sprayed with Pam. I covered my Pyrex baking dishes with the plastic pyrex covers and the tops stuck to the cover ... so they didn't look super pretty.
I was on my own the night I made this recipe, so I made a single sandwich using a hamburger bun. I scaled the other ingredients down to two servings, but didn’t use nearly the amount of cream cheese spread. I wrapped my sandwich in non-stick foil and baked for 20 minutes. When I opened the foil the top was a little soggy, so I popped it under the broiler to crisp it up. I really wanted to like this, but the warm, runny cream cheese just didn’t do it for me. It was edible, but I won’t be making it again. Sorry.
These are amazing! We love them with a fried egg for breakfast or brunch too. I have been making them on the hawaiian bread hamburger buns, which makes 6 sandwiches. I only use a half pound of shaved ham and have only used swiss and it's worked great. They also reheat well in the microwave in a few seconds.
These were delicious! But I used 2 packages of rolls, 1 1/2 pounds of ham and I doubled the butter sauce- this way I used up all of the cream cheese. I'm glad I did, because just 12 wouldn't have been enough.
It's delicious. However, I would caution anyone for using 2 sticks butter for this recipe. Either cut the entire sauce (4 ingredients) to 1/2, or double the amount of buns. Same for the cheese spread. It's way too much for 12 buns. Truthfully, you need 2 packages of buns to follow the recipe.
The recipe only calls for one stick of butter, not two, rosethecook. 1/2 cup butter is 1 stick.
These were very good. I used a regular swiss cheese that I already had. I also used a popular brand of hawaiian roll, and they were fairly small, so I didn't use all of the cream cheese or ham (and halved each slice of cheese), but there was still plenty on each. I recommend that you keep an eye on these, as mine were well-done at about 15 minutes. They probably would have burned had I left them in the entire 20. Husband thought they were delicious and I will make them again.
Wow, these are really good. Have made them twice, baking for the recommended 20 minutes the first time...they were a little too brown. This time, I took them out at 15 minutes and they were heated through perfectly. Keep your eye on them because they start to brown pretty quickly, and you may want to cover with some foil to complete the cooking. I can see making these so many different ways just by changing what's between the top and bottom bun, but keeping the butter sauce the same. I'm thinking turkey and swiss with AR's onion jam recipe, and Italian beef, mozzarella, and some roasted red peppers and onions . Yeah, they're a little decadent nutrition-wise, but they're worth the splurge every now and then. Definitely worth consideration for a Super Bowl party.
