Sassy Tailgate Sandwiches

Sassy Tailgate Sandwiches


"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."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Cut all rolls in half. Place roll bottoms in 9x13-inch pan.
  2. Place equal amounts of ham on each roll bottom. Top with Gruyere.
  3. On each of the roll tops, spread a generous amount of the cream cheese spread. Return the tops to the bottoms making sandwiches.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the butter, Worcestershire sauce, onion and Parmesan cheese. Pour over your sandwiches and let sit for at least 20 minutes. (You can make these ahead of time and allow to sit in fridge overnight.)
  5. Place sandwiches, covered in foil, in a preheated 350 degrees F oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until warmed through. Enjoy!

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 c...

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 ...

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 hav...

The recipe only calls for one stick of butter, not two, rosethecook. 1/2 cup butter is 1 stick.

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 chees...

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...

MOUTHWATERING! I used thinly sliced boiled ham from the deli. I also used the individually wrapped swiss cheese slices (similar to the American cheese slices) because they really melt easily a...

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 he...

These were off the charts amazing!! Made a triple batch for my husband's poker night and the guys were actually asking if they could take some home...the problem being there were no "leftovers"....
