Weeknight Wonders {Hot Hammies & Hashbrown Casserole}

Every time I make these delicious little sandwiches for dinner, I feel like such a bad friend.  Hot Hammies are a main course staple around our house.  Everyone loves them.  We rarely, if ever, have left overs.  They are so easy to make.  How have I not told everyone I know?  I’m sorry, friends, for not having shared this one sooner.

I had my first Hot Hammie days after Lillian was born.  A friend brought them to our family for dinner, and she had discovered them because a friend of hers brought them to her after her baby was born.  Our family has loved these little nuggets ever since.  They are basically hot ham and provolone sandwiches on sweet Hawaiian rolls.  But there is a sauce involved that is brushed onto the inside and top of the buns.  It may or may not be slightly addictive.  Everything gets baked together and you are left with a melty flavorful piece of dinner gold.

There is nothing difficult about preparing Hot Hammies, but there are a few things I have discovered that make the process go as smoothly as possible.  You will need a pastry brush, a serrated knife, and a cutting board for assembly.  You need to prep and divide each component before assembling them.  You need to make sure you spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray {like you did for Spaghetti Pie} so that the bread doesn’t stick to the foil.  And you need to make sure you make plenty because these bite-sized wonders don’t stick around for long.  All of these hints are outlined in the recipe below.

And the same is true of Hashbrown Casserole.  Such an easy recipe.  Ultra cheesy, creamy, and a crunchy buttery Corn Flake crust on top.  Mmmmmmmm.  Over the years I have discovered there are a few subtle hints that make this dish extra delicious.  For instance, the order in which you combine the ingredients really determines how smooth of a mixture you end up with.  And salt is crucial in this dish.  I have measured and tested exactly how much I use when I make it and recorded it all in the recipe below.

Both dishes can be prepared ahead of time and baked right before dinner.  And they make a wonderful dinner to take to your friend who just had a baby!  Click below for printable copies of each recipe.
