Baked Ham Sandwiches

Baked Ham Sandwiches made with Hawaiian rolls, Muenster cheese, bacon, ham, honey mustard and ranch.


When you are headed to a party and you need to bring an appetizer, these Baked Ham Sandwiches are it friends.  These buttery and salty baked ham sandwiches make the perfect appetizer for parties and the perfect companion to a nice craft beer or two. Two sandwiches. Two beers. Yes.

I originally had Baked Ham Sandwiches at a party and they had swiss cheese but no ranchy butter sauce.  The world needs ranchy butter sauce. I need ranchy butter sauce.

Ok, let’s get this party started.

Baked-Ham-Sandwiches Ingredients

To start with, you’ll those sweet King’s Hawaiian rolls. Cut the tops off.


Place the bottoms in a 9×13 greased pan.


Add your ham. You can leave it as slices or use a food scissors and chop up the meat into bite-size pieces.

Cheese-Muenster. And that’s because it is the most amazing cheese ever.


Oh hey. Bacon came to join the party.  Did you know that in the salad dressing area of the grocery store they carry packages of fully cooked bacon pieces? Educate yourself.


Time to meet ranchy butter sauce. Mix up all that melted butter and mix with the ranch dressing and mustard.


Go big or go home. These Baked Ham Sandwiches are getting serious. Time to hit the oven.


I serve these sandwiches hot and they fly off the table.  Normally Minnesotans are nice and let others have the last of something. Not in this case.  These buttery baked ham sandwiches go perfect with an ice cold beer so get the cooler ready and enjoy!

  1. These look easy and amazing! I am going to add this recipe to my recipe box ideas. I wonder if they would do well over a campfire instead of the oven for our outdoor trips? We will have to give it a shot. Until then I will use the indoor oven. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks, Kelly! They really are so easy and so yummy! I think you could get the pan nice and hot and get the sandwiches melted over a campfire however, when I bake at home and take the tinfoil off and return to the oven for another 15 minutes that last bake gets the tops a little crusty-so I’m not sure you can get that with the campfire.

  2. I love that you don’t have to take the time to individually make these sandwiches! That really does make these quick and easy to whip up! And I think Kelly has a great idea about making these for a campfire…they won’t have the same texture…but hey, I’m going to have to give it a try! ~L

  5. I notice this recipe calls for 16 Tbs of butter; whereas, the Roast Beef recipe calls for 8 Tbs. Are you recommending twice the butter on this recipe for a reason? Or, could you go with 8Tbs?

    BTW, I’m so going to make these and my guys will think I’m a rockstar!

  6. I’m going to make these for a baby shower ,but I’m going to prepare them at home and transfer them there to keep them warm can I place them in a warmer a few mins. before it’s time to eat?
