Sticky Turkey and Cheese Sandwiches

Welcome to tea in my garden with some yummy hot sticky sandwiches.

I'm using this Arthur Wood teapot.  I thought it looked so pretty with my favorite tablecloth that my friend, Joy, gave me.

Here's some of the pretty detail of the luncheon cloth.

This is a Rosina teacup that I received in a teacup exchange.

This Royal Windsor teacup was given to me by my neighbors, when I lived in Ohio, as a gift for keeping an eye on their home and getting their mail.  It's probably about 40 + years old now.

Sticky Turkey and Cheese Sandwiches

Sticky Turkey and Cheese Sandwiches

This recipe is adapted from Siri Daly. She used ham and swiss but I changed it up. It's really good either way, and I'm sure roast beef would be good, too. It's great because you can prepare the day before, which is always a help.


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick)  butter
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 package small sweet Hawaiian buns
  • enough sliced turkey for 12 small buns
  • enough cheese of your choice for 12 small buns (I used Smoked Gouda)


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring butter, dry mustard, Worcestershire, brown sugar and poppy seeds to a boil in a saucepan. Lower heat and let simmer for a few minutes. Set aside.
  2. Slice buns in half and assemble sandwiches by adding desired amounts of turkey and cheese. Place in a small baking dish (it helps if they fit snugly in there) and pour sauce all over, using a spatula to make sure they are all coated. Cover with foil and let marinate in fridge for at least one hour, or overnight.
  3. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  4.  Bake sandwiches for 10 minutes covered and another 10 minutes uncovered. 


When I make these the night before, I bring the sandwiches out on the counter for about 30 minutes to take the chill off.

Everyone, but my Marine grandson, a daughter-in-law, and a granddaughter was here at my house on the 7th anniversary of Rich's passing.  It meant the world to me, and we had such a wonderful family time.

Thank you for your visit!  xo

I am sharing this with:


  1. What a great family photo Kitty! Everything about your tea party in your garden is so pretty, including the dappled sunlight! I love your sweet teapot and teacups, I'm always amazed that you can keep track of who and when you received them. :) Your sticky turkey and cheese sandwiches remind me of Southern Living's ham and cheese party rolls and are a family favorite. Happy Monday ♥

  2. You have a beautiful family, Kitty. That photo is wonderful.

    Lovely tea things!

  3. YUM those sandwiches look so tasty! Yes mam I would have to have one. Of course your tea cups and tea pot are adorable. I miss the tea cup exchange but cannot imagine the hard work that went into doing that! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the picture of you with your beautiful family. Be still my heart!

    I've had the ham and cheese variety of this sandwich and love them, but the turkey version sounds delicious, too!

  6. What a charming tea time! The sandwich looks so enticing! It's always nice to see a teacup from the Enchanting Rose's exchanges. Last week, I received two snail mail from my past teacup partners! They don't blog so we keep in touch via letters.

    So glad that your family was able to gather together to honour your hubby.
