12 slices provolone cheese
1/2 cup butter
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp yellow mustard
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350.
 
Split each dinner roll. Make a sandwich of the ham and cheese and the dinner rolls. Arrange the sandwiches in a 9x13 pan. 
 
In a small sauce pan combine butter, brown sugar, mustard, Worcestershire and poppy seeds. Bring to a boil and pour over sandwiches.
 
Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the tops are brown and crispy.
 
We make these but use "Tatum" brand rolls, you know those little rolls in the metal pan. Just slice the pan of rolls in half between the top and bottom of roll. Make sandwiches as listed and return to pan. Before putting in the oven score, the rolls every two rolls. Then bake. Really great party item
