Ham and cheese sliders with poppyseed sauce

Mrs. Mohr is about 25 weeks pregnant.  She's not like some pregnant women though, when she's pregnant she doesn't get cravings, she actually has less desire for food she normally loves and can never figure out what to make for dinner. So it was odd that she had a severe craving for ham recently...real ham, not deli ham, the real stuff sliced right off the bone. My main man also has a weakness for the Wilbur (although his is not due to pregnancy thankfully), so we happen to have a freezer full of the stuff.  Interestingly, they had this craving the same week and I came downstairs to him shaving all our hams up....perfect timing to drop a bag at the Mohr household to give a little love to the newest mini-Mohr who for some reason has a love of ham!

She found this recipe at The Girl Who Ate Everything, and I was pumped to look through the other recipes on this site (I've pinned about 80 of them)! I did not try these sammies, but Michelle said she would def make them again so I will be giving them a shot at some point soon when I want to suck up to the main man...he's got a weakness for a good ham sammy :)

24 good white dinner rolls24 pieces good honey ham
24 small slices Swiss cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup miracle whip

Poppyseed sauce:
(you probably could half this sauce recipe...I had plenty extra)
1 Tablespoon poppyseeds
1 1/2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and miracle whip. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet. Place very close together.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients. Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. You do not have to use all of the sauce! Just use enough to cover the tops. Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes or until tops are slightly brown and crispy. Serve warm.

** sandwiches can be assembled a day ahead and kept in the fridge ready to bake.
