Made up of King’s Hawaiian Rolls and ham n’ cheese, these sandwiches are pretty much one of the basic food groups at every tailgating event. Gooey and savory, these babies will make even the manliest football fan weep tears of happiness. Even though they’re called Hawaiian, don’t expect any hula girls to be pigging out on these southern classics.

5. Add your layer of cheese, making one half swiss and the other mozzarella.

6. Put the pan into the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the cheese has browned.

7. While you wait, place the stick of butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 10 second increments until liquified.

8. Mix in Worcester sauce, onion flakes, mustard, and poppy seed.

13. Put sandwiches back in the oven and finish baking for another 20 minutes.

14.Take them out of the oven and serve hot or cold.

TIP: so we obviously had a few burnt a few as you can see (we were busy watching the new season of Dexter on Netflix–sue us!) we suggest you watch the sandwiches more carefully  while they bake and take them out when they are a nice golden color.
