Here is the promised recipe for the sticky bun ham sandwiches! I found this to be the perfect make-ahead food to feed a large amount of people. I assembled the sandwiches (omitting the sauce and baking) and froze the pans until I needed them.
These sandwiches are so low-maintenance. Once baked, they can be served hot, warm, or room temperature. They're even great the next day straight out of the refrigerator.
The original recipe was given to me by a friend. It called for an obscene amount of butter. I more than halved that amount, and the result was spectacular. The combination of salty and sweet combined with sticky and gooey - satisfies every craving you've ever had.
You could make these sandwiches for a bridal shower, picnic, cocktail party, or even for a light dinner.
Whatever you make them for, I promise you that you'll love them!
