  1. Great flavor in these sandwiches and easy to assemble! The sweet onion flavor really shines here. I baked on a foil lined pan and watched until the bottoms & tops of the rolls were crispy. (we didn't want soggy bread). Next time I will reduce the poppy seeds by half. There was far too many on the sandwiches for us. I can see this being a hit at a tailgate or backyard party. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
  2. These are so good!! I made them a few times to take over to friends house. It's a huge hit. I also used provolone cheese, came out just as good.
  3. These are absolutely delicious and so fun for a get together or party. Very easy to make and you will get many compliments!
  4. These are little morsels of heaven! I too use the Hawaiian rolls, but in a pinch even the less expensive dinner rolls work. I also leave the worcestershire out and onion powder instead of flakes. Great for breakfast or a quick snack! The last time I made this with PROVOLONE cheese and it was scrumptious!
  5. I love these, for the simplicity and ease, and the wonderful flavor. If you have a crowd to feed, they are a good way to do it. And any kind of small rolls will work, like silver dollar buns or turkey buns. They are fast, too!

I am a Registered Nurse part-time and a full-time mother of two beautiful daughters. My husband I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary this year. Being with my family is a great joy to me and cooking for them is a pleasure! I love to try new foods and I am fortunate that so does everyone else in the family (well, except the 5 year old who is "picky" - but at least occasionally starting to try new foods!). RecipeZaar helps me explore new food and has given me many yummy "repeat" recipes that have become "standard" in our home. Thanks to everyone who posts, reviews and shares tips on this website. Thanks, too, to those who maintain RecipeZaar's website - all your hard work and attention to detail are what set this site way above any other recipe site. It is great to have a "world wide cookbook" at my fingertips!!
