Step 1

In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and miracle whip. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss cheese inside each roll. Close rolls and place close together on a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients.

Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. You do not have to use all of the sauce! Just use enough to cover the tops.

Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly.

Cover with foil and bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes or until tops are slightly brown and crispy. Serve warm.

Note: Sandwiches can be assembled a day ahead and kept in the fridge ready to bake.
