"I made one for myself today just to try them out. It was fabulous. I am going to make them tomorrow for a work crew at our church with chicken rice soup. The only thing I changed is I left out the poppy seeds. Thanks for the great recipe."

"A keeper. I only needed to make 6 sandwiches so I reduced some of the ingredients. I also put 3 slices of ham on each sandwich because 1 seemed like not enough. The poppy seeds clumped together so I used a knife to spread them after dabbing with the butter mixture. I used yellow mustard but honey or Dijon would be nice too."

"I served these yummy sandwiches at a Baby Shower that I hosted and they were a huge hit. Everyone wanted the recipe! I was able to make them up a few hours before the shower and waited to put them in the oven until I was ready to serve lunch. The aroma from the kitchen was a big hit too!"

"These were very good!!! My kids weren't too fond of the poppy seeds, so next time I will just sprinkle the poppy seeds on some of the sandwiches instead of adding them to the butter mixture. I used 6 regular sized kaiser rolls instead of the small ones and followed the recipe from there. Next time, I will use hamburger buns or the small rolls. And yes, they definitely smelled wonderful while they were cooking!!!"
