Baked Ham & Caprese Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

I don’t share savory meals often but when I do they’re usually pretty simple. Simple to make but not simple in taste!

Keeks from @keeksitsimple had me drooling over her OG ham & swiss baked Hawaiian rolls when I made them a month ago and this time I made a few minor changes. You can really stuff these bad boys with anything and it’ll be a bomb sandwich! The leftovers are great too, just broil for 3-5 minutes to crispy them back up after refrigerating.

Baked Ham & Caprese Hawaiian Sweet Rolls:

  • 1 packet Hawaiian sweet rolls (I get the ones from #TraderJoes)
  • 1 & 1/2 packets of organic uncured ham deli meat
  • 1/2 log of fresh mozzarella cheese
  • One slices heirloom tomato
  • Handful of diced fresh basil
  • Balsamic glaze

Topping for buns:

  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp poppyseeds or chia seeds
  • 2 tsp onion powder

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a small baking sheet with tinfoil or a reusable baking mat. Set aside.
  • Slice the Hawaiian sweet rolls in half without pulling them apart individually. Combine the topping ingredients in a small bowl and brush a little inside the rolls. Place the filling inside the rolls: ham, sliced tomato, fresh basil, drizzle of balsamic glaze, and mozzarella cheese.
  • Place the top of the rolls on top and brush the melted butter mixture over the top of the rolls.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the tops are nice and crispy.
  • Let cool for a few minutes before slicing between the rolls to serve. ENOY!
