Baked Hawaiian Sandwiches

Baked Hawaiian sandwiches are a delicious and flavorful twist on traditional ham and cheese sandwiches. They typically feature ham, pineapple, Swiss cheese, and a sweet and savory sauce, all baked together in a roll or bread. Here’s a basic recipe to make these mouthwatering sandwiches:


For the Sandwiches:

  • 12 small Hawaiian sweet rolls or slider buns
  • 1 pound of thinly sliced ham
  • 1 can (20 ounces) of pineapple rings, drained
  • 12 slices of Swiss cheese

For the Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion (or fresh minced onion)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350Β°F (175Β°C).
  2. Slice the Hawaiian rolls in half horizontally, keeping them connected to each other. Place the bottom half of the rolls in a baking dish or on a baking sheet.
  3. Layer the ham slices on top of the bottom half of the rolls.
  4. Place a slice of Swiss cheese on top of the ham.
  5. Add a pineapple ring on top of the cheese.
  6. Place the top half of the rolls on top of the pineapple slices to create sandwich sliders.
  7. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, poppy seeds, and dried minced onion to create the sauce.
  8. Pour the sauce evenly over the top of the assembled sandwiches.
  9. Cover the baking dish or sandwiches with aluminum foil.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the sandwiches are heated through and the cheese is melted.
  11. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the tops of the rolls are golden brown and slightly crispy.
  12. Remove the sandwiches from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
  13. You can serve the sandwiches warm as a snack, appetizer, or even as a main dish with a side salad or coleslaw.
