Ham and Swiss Poppy Seed Rolls  for Easy Holiday Entertaining

During the holidays the front door of my house magically becomes a revolving door. Friends and family come and go throughout the entire season. I don’t mind it at all, I love the sound of hurried footsteps, laughter and loud happy chatter. To me, it’s far more special than gifts and glitter and it’s precisely how lifetime memories are made. My Gramma used to tell me “Always remember these are the good old days of tomorrow.” There’s so much wisdom is in that statement. Enjoy every minute with the ones you love and part of those memories are connected to the food served during holidays.

    1. You could assemble them in advance and store tightly wrapped without any issues. However, the poppy seed-mustard shouldn’t be applied until just before baking.

  1. What can I use instead of the parker style yeast rolls. We don’t have them where I live.


    1. I make something very similar to this, I use kings Hawaiian rolls and skip the honey and garlic and add the whole onion. they are out of this world good!
