- 1 (8 ounce) containerphiladelphia chive & onion cream cheese
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried onion flakes
- Arrange bottoms of rolls in a greased 13x9 inch baking dish.
- Layer each roll evenly with ham and Gruyere cheese.
- Spread each roll top with cream cheese; place over Gruyere.
- In a small bowl, combine the butter, parmesan cheese, worcestershire sauce and onion.

Thank you for posting my award winning recipe! Would appreciate credit in your description!
I think the real secret to this recipe's yummyness is the sitting time to allow the sauce mix to soak in. I cut this back to 2 servings and let them sit in the fridge for about 3 hrs and it came out really delicious. No Hawaiian rolls available in my part of the world so I just used homemade Onion Buns. These made a great summer dinner with potato salad and carrot sticks.
These are delicious! I substituted Swiss for the Gruyere, used shaved imported ham, and Savory Butter King's Hawaiian rolls as that is what I had on hand. I also used my own cream cheese mixture made with softened cream cheese, chopped scallions, dried chives, onion powder and garlic powder. After letting the assembled sandwiches sit in the refrigerator (covered) for about an hour, before baking, I sprinkled the tops of the buns with a mixture of dried onion flakes, poppy and sesame seeds. They baked, topped with sprayed foil, for 20 minutes. I then removed the foil and let them bake for another 8 minutes. They were not at all soggy. The sandwiches went over big and I will most definitely double the recipe next time I make these, and perhaps try other ingredients using this baking method.
