Hot Ham and Onion Jam Rolls with Molten Cheese

Serves 12
Prep time:
Cooking time:

These rolls were a huge hit when I was coming up with recipes to use leftover ham. Place these on the table and watch them disappear! Great with a cold beer.



  • 12 bread rolls
  • ¾ cup purchased onion jam or relish
  • 300 grams ham
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • paprika
  • Topping
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry English mustard
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • baking dish or oven tray (large enough to hold the rolls snugly) lined with baking paper

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Topping: Whisk the butter, Worcestershire sauce, salt, mustard, cayenne and eggs together in a bowl then stir in the cheese. 

Slice the rolls in half and place side by side in the baking dish. Place a spoonful of onion jam on each bottom half. Slice the ham thinly then pile onto the rolls and top with the cheese. 

Cut a small slice off the top half of each roll (the topping will fall off if spooned onto a round top)and place over the bottom halves.

Spoon the topping onto each roll then add a pinch of paprika.

Bake for about 8-10 minutes until the topping is golden and bubbling and the ham is very hot, turning the tray for even browning. Serve immediately.
