Easy Easter Ham and Cheese Brunch Rolls

My friend Jenn’s mom made these yummy ham and cheese Easter brunch rolls for her bridal shower a few years ago and I begged for the recipe. They’re sweet. They’re savory. They’re so drool-worthy, they’ve become my Easter tradition. Well, that and fried chicken (don’t judge).

Perfect for a potluck, I promise these will be the party favorite. Except for my Bloody Mary bar tradition. Stay tuned for that!Β 

Easter Brunch Rolls


12-count package of King’s Hawaiian dinner rolls
1/2 lb thick sliced deli ham
1/2 lb thin sliced swiss cheese
1 stick butter
1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
2 tablespoons brown sugar


Split rolls in half. Layer ham (I like Boar’s Head deluxe ham) and cheese onto rolls. (I cut swiss cheese slices into quarters and put 2 slices on bottom of the bun and two on top so that each roll has 1 slice of cheese, and I use 1 slice of thin ham per sandwich.)

Arrange filled rolls into a 9″ x 13″ pan. Combine the remaining ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Mix well and pour over rolls. Let stand for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator if time allows. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and rolls are crusty. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Happy Easter!

  1. So glad that you liked these, Molly πŸ™‚ I continue to make them for special events and the raves keep coming in. I now make them with the whole-wheat Hawaiian rolls instead of the white rolls and they are super yummy and (as I try to fool myself) just a tad bit healthier!!!

    I can’t stand how yummy these look! I’ve already printed the recipe so I can make these on Sunday.
