Ham Cocktail 'Biscuits'

Growing up, it seemed that every time my parents would have a party/gathering, we'd make these ham biscuits. They are not biscuits in the traditional Southern sense of the word, but they are surely delicious.

I made them for our New Year's Eve cocktail party, and they seemed to be a hit.

Ham Biscuits

1/4 lb. (100g) butter, softened
2 tsp. Dijon Mustard
2 Tbsp. poppy seeds
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 small onion, finely minced
1 package (20-24) party rolls (These are often called 'brown and serve.')
4-5 oz. sliced ham
1, 4-oz. package sliced Swiss cheese (Of course, one can use grated cheese.)

Mix together softened butter, mustard, poppy seeds, Worcestershire sauce,
and onion. Slice open the bread and spread mixture on both sides. Top half
with cheese and half with ham. Close rolls and bake at 350ºF until
cheese is melted. Cut into individual sandwiches and serve warm.

  1. I realize I didn't post a final product photo. I guess we were already having so much fun at the party that we forgot to take one! ;-) We'll just have to make them again.
