My next door neighbor shared her version of this recipe with me. You can make it ahead and cook it quickly when company arrives. The combo of poppy seeds, ham and cheese, horseradish and brown sugar makes it simply delicious!—Iris Weihemuller, Baxter, Minnesota

MY REVIEW

"These buns are absolutely the best, so easy to put together and a carefree oven dish. This would make a great potluck addition or appetizer or even lunch meal. I'll be pulling these out of the oven often."

"These sandwiches were a hit at our family gathering. The buns ended up a bit soggy though. I will try again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 8, 2015

"Delicious! I love that you can make these ahead and then just pop them in the oven when you're ready. I personally think, between the caramelized onions and the king bread, that adding the brown sugar makes it all too sweet and I will try it without the added sugar next time - perhaps with some sauteed onions and peppers, hmmm...."

"I made these twice over the past year and just love them. So easy to prep ahead. I don't seem to use quite a 1/2 cup of horseradish sauce but they still have a kick. N"
