Delicious Baked Sandwiches

posted by Andrea | 09/22/2011

What do you get when you mix delicious deli meats, gooey cheese, fresh rolls, and a healthy amount of butter?

The most delicious baked sandwiches ever!

And just wait until I show you how easy these are to make… perfect for a quick weeknight meal and delicious school lunches the next day.

For starters — just make up a dozen {or more!} of your favorite meat/cheese sandwiches on Brown ‘n Serve rolls. I know I always preach how almost all my recipes are easily customizable for the ingredients you have in the house, but I must admit that the Brown ‘n Serve rolls {or store brand equivalent} are what make these sandwiches. Other rolls don’t get crispy enough on top!


Then mix up the delicious, buttery sauce {recipe below}.


Pour the sauce over the buns…


Then bake them for about 20 minutes, or until the tops are nice and crispy.


Besides that fact that this is one of the easiest recipes in my recipe box — you can make it even easier by preparing these sandwiches in the morning {or the night before} and then simply baking them when it’s time to eat.

I’ve tried them both ways — baking right away and letting them sit for several hours — and you can’t taste any difference, so just do whatever works best for you.

Also, these are delicious the next day for school lunches… so you might want to make an extra dozen or so!


Recipe for 1 Dozen Sandwiches:

{print this recipe}


  • 1 dozen Brown n’ Serve rolls
  • 1/2 to 3/4 lb. sliced deli meat
  • sliced cheese — enough to fit on each bun


  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • 1 T. mustard
  • 1 T. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 T. Poppy seeds


  • Put sandwiches together and place in a 9×13” pan
  • Boil sauce until bubbly and pour over sandwhiches.
  • You can either bake immediately or let sit for several hours or even over night.
  • Bake in a 350*F preheated oven for 20-30 minutes, or until the tops are brown and crispy.

Leftover sandwiches are perfect for lunch the next day and taste great cold or warmed up again.

    ANY ideas for alternatives to the mustard? Both hubby and I DESPISE mustard (really strongly!).

    I actually hate mustard too, but I use brown mustard for these sandwiches and don’t mind it at all. If you really dislike mustard that much, just do without it.

    Hi Andrea, have you tried freezing these after they’ve been baked? If so, how did they turn out? I was thinking about making them ahead for lunch at work.

    Oh my Gosh! These look amazing! I also dislike mustard on it’s own but don’t mind it hidden in recipes :)

    Hi Andrea, I was wondering if you have ever frozen these sandwiches after they have been baked? The recipe is really too much for the two of us and although I could make just half I would prefer to make the whole one and freeze the leftovers.
    If you have frozen them, how do you then thaw and reheat them and how do they turn out?



    Andrea Reply:

    I’ve frozen the sandwiches BEFORE adding the sauce and baking, but never after. We just eat them for lunch leftovers throughout the week — they stay good in the fridge for several days and re-heat well in the microwave.

    However, if you’re not a big fan of leftovers, I’d probably just make a half batch at a time :)

    […] me anyway.) No time to make my own crust by this point so I moved ahead Wednesday’s dinner of Baked Sandwiches. Very similar to last week’s Baked Meatball Sandwiches but different. Also no green beans […]
