This is a recipe that has been auctioned off at every MOPS auction we have had since this mom became a member. It always goes for a lot and is liked by everyone. I was going to make it last night but I couldn't cut the bread with a regular knife. When she says a electric knife comes in handy, it shoudl really say that it is needed. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Hot Ham Sandwiches
I have made these every year for the MOPs Christmas Brunch so most of you have tasted them! You can put them back into the metal pan the rolls come in and wrap them in foil and freeze for up to 3 months.
Feeds ~30 as hors d'oeuvres or ~10 as a main entrée.
3 pkgs. Small dinner rolls
1 lb. shaved ham
8-12oz grated Swiss cheese
1 grated onion
2 sticks margarine
5 Tbl. Dijon mustard
2 tsp. poppy seeds (optional)
With the rolls still frozen, slice each pan of rolls in half. It helps to use an electric knife. Top with a layer of ham and cheese. Melt margarine; add mustard, onion, and poppy seed until mixed. Spoon the mixture on top of ham and cheese layer. Replace roll tops. At this point you can place them back into their plastic bag and keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
If cooking immediately, bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
If cooking from frozen, cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, uncover and bake until tops are golden brown (usually 15-20 minutes longer).
