Baked Ham & Cheese Sandwiches

How's your week been? It's been a pretty good one around here, busy of course.  Our youngest daughter celebrated her fifth birthday on Wednesday. We didn't plan much for this year and kept the celebration just within our own family. But we treated her to dinner out (a rare treat!) and she was thrilled to bring cupcakes to school for her friends.

I'm curious to know, do any of you choose to not throw elaborate birthday parties for your children? Not that there is anything wrong with that, of course parties are lots of fun. In this day in age I just was wondering if families still opt to keep birthday celebrations low key?

Life has just been busy lately and I guess I really haven't shared some of those changes with all of you. Most of you know I have since gone to work outside the home, I am with our local public school system at a nearby preschool. I love working with this age group as it's so familiar to what I was already doing. I also am working Friday nights and Saturdays at a local grocery store for some extra money. And lastly, I have begun taking a course two nights a week for my full time job. I just finished the first eight week term and next week begin another class. In the fall I will complete one more and then hopefully be done with that.

Some days it feels like a lot of my plate, but I have quite the support system at home so that helps. Blogging is still a passion and something I will always strive to keep doing, even if I can't publish posts as often as I'd like to. Please know that I appreciate your loyalty, and knowing that you keep reading and coming back for more is what keeps me going!

Like so many of you, dinner many nights is something quick for us. We've made these a few times and have always liked them. They're especially good during the warmer months with salads, fresh fruit and veggies. Sort of like picnic type food. Or even during tailgating season as handy appetizers. Feel free to use your own favorite types of cheese in here.

I know these would make for a nice freezer meal, I will have to add them to my list for my next session.

Baked Ham & Cheese Sandwiches

1 pkg (12 rolls) King's Hawaiian rolls
1 lb. good quality sliced ham
sliced cheese, your choice
3 tbsp melted butter
1 tbsp brown sugar
few dashes of Worcestershire sauce

Mix together melted butter, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Brush mixture on inside of buns.  Layer each roll with a couple slices of ham and then cheese. Baste any remaining butter mixture onto tops of sandwiches.

Arrange sandwiches in a large baking dish, 9x13 should work fine. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
