  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • A pinch each of salt, freshly ground pepper, nutmeg, or more to taste
  • 12 ounces Gruyère cheese, grated (about 3 cups grated)

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (packed)
  • 1 pack Hawaiian sandwich rolls (12 rolls)
  • 1 pound ham, sliced
  • Dijon mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. To make the béchamel sauce, melt butter in a saucepan on medium/low heat until it just starts to bubble. Add the flour and cook, stirring until smooth, about 2 minutes. Slowly add the milk, whisking continuously, cooking until thick. Remove from heat. Add the salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in the Parmesan and 1/2 cup of the grated Gruyère. Set aside.
  3. Cut rolls lengthwise, place both sides cut side up on baking sheet, brush with melted butter and broil until toasted.
  4. Place bottom rolls in 9x13 baking dish, lightly brush half of the toasted slices with mustard. Add the ham slices and about 1 cup of the remaining Gruyère cheese. Top with the other toasted rolls.
  5. Spoon on the béchamel sauce to the tops of the sandwiches. Sprinkle with the remaining Gruyère cheese. Place on a broiling pan. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes, then turn on the broiler and broil for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, until the cheese topping is bubbly and lightly browned.
