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.

    Do these freeze well?

    I’ve frozen the sandwiches before, but never with the sauce.
