Funeral sandwiches rank among my favorite southern meals. The salty Ham, the rich and nutty Swiss cheese, and the sweet Dijon brown sugar butter glaze make soft Hawaiian rolls. They’ve upgraded cheese and ham sliders and are topped with a Dijon brown sugar caramelized crust. They’re delicious!
Funeral sandwiches on the day before Christmas, I went to an oyster-themed dinner in one of my favorite friends’ homes. Nick’s name is Nick Pilato. Nick Pilato and I’ve been buddies since the 6th grade. It’s not just because I think he was the person who got me to the world of great music. But, his family taught me a variety of things that were new to me too.
For over 15 years, his family has been hosting the famous oyster-themed celebrations for the past 15 years. It’s among my favorite traditions around the holidays and gives me a feeling of nostalgia! Luckily, his mother is always serving her famous sandwiches at funeral services in the kitchen. What is a funeral sandwich? These are Southern sliders with Ham and cheese that are cooked in Dijon sauce and brown sugar. When the sauce is baked, it is caramelized and creates a crust. It tastes sweet, tangy, and delicious, that’s unlike anything else.
The sandwiches are hard to define. They’re moist and crisp; however, they’re so addicting that you’ll never consume just one. It’s not necessary to have an occasion to cook these sandwiches! They’re referred to as that because they intended to serve during funerals and church meals.
Additionally, the majority of funeral recipes require soaking in them for the duration of a night. With the recipe below, you’ll have to soak them for a short duration. At least for 24 hours. This versatility means that funeral rolls can be made at any time or even days ahead of time, making them perfect to plan a party.
Funeral sandwiches are also a great way to use leftover food items from my Crock Pot pineapple ham with brown sugar!
