I made these sandwiches for my Mom and I for lunch one afternoon, and they were really good. That horseradish, butter, dill weed mixture is pretty tasty.
What's nice about this is you can easily alter the ingredients to make a whole bunch at once if you're cooking for a large group, or you can make just one or two if that's all you need.
I wasn't originally planning on using onion rolls, but since I went to the commissary on one of the worst days of the month (payday), there was NO selection for bread and rolls left (I have since learned my lesson. Go on Tuesday mornings, and avoid payday at all costs). I would recommend using buns that are a little less...bready. These were good, but you had to use a lot of meat to balance out the bread-to-meat ratio.
Or, I imagine it would be pretty easy to turn this recipe into sliders if you're wanting to serve it as finger-food for say a football gathering or birthday party. Just get some small rolls (I think the Hawaiian mini rolls would be wonderful, but then I do love those things), and you could wrap 4 sandwiches together in the foil and bake them that way, then pull them apart after cooking, so you're not wrapping a million individual little sandwiches...just a thought.
I had never heard of Horseradish Mustard, but it's there with all the other mustard's (I think I used French's). It's really good on hot dogs, brats, and plain ham and cheese sandwiches, so you'll definitely be able to find uses for the rest of the bottle.
Ok guys, I'm off to get cleaned up then take Jango puppy to the groomers to get shaved since he is shedding everywhere. Seriously, I'm vacuuming every day, and it's just me and the dog here right now. I'm thinking a navy blue area rug for the living room may have been a poor choice....
