Hot Ham and Cheese Mini Sandwiches

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

These little sandwiches are quick and easy to put together, and go over well with kids and adults.  For an added kick, try spreading some additional Dijon mustard on the rolls before adding the ham and cheese.  These can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator, but you may need to bake them a few extra minutes.  These can also be made ahead and stored in the freezer.  Just defrost in the refrigerator and then bake as directed.

    I made this today for a family get together and it was a huge hit! Actually, it was my pin and I was the overseerer while my son and husband put it together. Next time we will add garlic to the utter mixture! Easy to put together and delish!
