A Dinner Hit

Ya know how in most homes you have a husband who will eat anything and kids who are picky and live off pb&j, chicken nuggets and mac and cheese?

Well our house is the opposite. I have 3 mini hoovers and the grown man who is the picky one. Nothing is ever flavorful enough for him. When I'm not looking and even when I am he dumps on the garlic salt, the pepper, the creole seasoning. Ree-dicu-lous! I try my hardest to not get hurt feelings that he doesn't listen to Kenny Chesney enough to ask for more. Cue the song: ""Eatin' burnt suppers the whole first year, An' askin' for seconds to keep her from tearin' up.
Yeah, man, that's the good stuff.""

Anyway moving on.

I've pinned tons of dinners and it seems like they're hit and miss at times. We have had quite a few hits. I really need to blog them so I don't forget.

Tonight I made

The boys asked to have them again tomorrow and that was shot down so they asked for them next Wednesday when I pick them up.

These were pretty simple. I made a few tweaks...
You can substitute some of the mayo or miracle whip for Greek yogurt. Maybe all of it but I liked the flavor from the MW despite it not being healthy whatsoever.
I used Kings Sweet Hawaiian rolls as I couldn't find any other dinner rolls at the store.
I used sliced ham (think thicker chunks, like breakfast slabs?) and just cut it thinner as we don't eat a lot of ham and I wasn't buying a ton.
Mozzarella instead of Swiss since we had it on hand.
Chia seeds rather than poppy seeds as they are super healthy for you. I got ours from Trader Joes.

The sauce was so good. I wish the rolls had gotten a little more crisp on top as I prefer that but either way they were yummmy! 

Jake wasn't home to try these but I'll have to update when he gets a chance to try them. I also made only 9 so I could use our 9x9 pan and only 1/4 cup of the mayo/MW/Greek yogurt and even then that was quite a bit left over.

Play around with it. Let me know if you try it, what you do differently if anything and how everyone likes it.
