Tangy Hot Ham & Swiss Sandwiches

Another yummy recipe I found courtesy of Pinterest.  They're called 'funeral sandwiches' according to the post, but I re-named them and changed the recipe just a tiny bit.  They were delicious and my family really loved them.  I think next time I would even put more ham on them!  Beware the marinating time - even though they're super quick to make, take that time into consideration when you make them.  You could prepare them before you go to work in the morning and bake them when you get home!  This is yet another recipe that I enjoyed Swiss cheese in.  I don't much care for Swiss cheese, but these were good!!

Tangy Hot Ham & Swiss Sandwiches

8-10 buns (I had homemade buns in my freezer that I used)
1 1/2 pounds deli ham, sliced - SuperTarget has an awesome Virginia Ham (made in Iowa... LOL) at their deli that I usually get
1/2 pound deli Swiss cheese, sliced (if you get 1 1/2 lbs of deli meat at SuperTarget you get a half pound of cheese free!)
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon onion powder

Cut the buns in half and place all the bottoms on a jelly roll pan or large cookie sheet with sides.  Place a slice or two of ham (a good amount for a bun) then a slice of Swiss cheese on each bottom then replace all the tops.
In a bowl combine melted butter, Worcestershire, mustard, brown sugar & onion powder.  Pour over all the buns giving each one a good dousing.  Cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge to marinate about 4 to 5 hours.  The original recipe said 4-24 hours so I imagine you could make them the day before, but it doesn't need to marinate that long to get the flavor.
Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes until tops are a nice dark golden color and cheese is melted.
