Ham Party Sandwiches with Roasted Red Pepper

Party ‘wiches is in the house tonight
Everybody just have a hammm time
And they gonna make you lose your mind
Everybody just have a cheeese time

In the midst of writing this post, I realized just how trashy pop lyrics are. And I couldn’t go on writing my awfully horribly terribly cheesy version of “Party ‘Wiches,” fifth grade change-the-lyrics-for-a-project style. LMFAO like doesn’t even use real words half the time: gonna, drank (as a noun), reppin’ (whatever that is?), zeppelin (like Led Zeppelin?), shufflin’—what?

If I still have your attention after all that blabbering about nothing, these sandwiches will wow a party. They are served hot 'n toasty. They are cheesy. They have a touch of sweetness. There's butter involved. I don't even really like ham, and I find the taste a treasure-filled delight.

It's one of those recipes that has circled potluck circuits millions of times, so I added some roasted red pepper (they are so funky to roast!) to do something unique for the blogosphere and add a touch of pretty to my picture. But the pepper really didn't add that much to the taste, so don't bother with it unless you just feel like it.

One last round of horrible lyric editing just came out below. You don't have to read it, unless you just want all the more fodder for poking fun at me.

One more ‘wich for us, another round
Please fill up my plate, don't mess around
We just wanna see you eat it now
Now you wanna be, you're hungry now

Ham Party Sandwiches with Roasted Red Pepper

1-12 pack Hawaiian rolls
¾ lb. sliced ham
6 slices of Swiss cheese
Roasted red peppers, sliced (optional)
1/4 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
½ Tbsp. poppy seeds
1/2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

Slice rolls and remove tops; place bread bottoms in a 13x9-inch baking pan. Fold ham slices to set on top of each roll bottom. Place cheese on top (I fold each slice in quarters and then place two quarters on top) and then red pepper, if desired. Place roll tops back on top of sandwiches.

Stir together remaining ingredients. Drizzle or use a brush to cover the sandwich tops with butter mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until sandwiches are warm and toasty.

You can prepare the sandwiches a day or two before serving.
