"Absolutely amazing dish! Everyone loved it and said it's definitely a keeper!"
"I've been making a recipe quite like this one for years. The difference is, I put a chopped onion in my ground beef and after it's done add a packet of taco seasoning mix and a 15oz can of refried beans. The tomatoes (I use Rotel) I mix with a small melted block of Velveeta cheese. I layer the slightly crushed Doritos in a bowl or casserole dish. Layer the ground beef mixture next. More Doritos. Then a layer of shredded lettuce and diced tomato. Then pour the hot melted Velveeta and Rotel tomatoes over the top and serve immediately. It's fabulous!"
"I want to try this! Ohh my, looks so good!"

This Funeral Sandwich Casserole is like the traditional ham and cheese funeral sandwich recipe, but easier. Instead of making ham and cheese sandwiches individually, you can layer King's Hawaiian rolls in a baking dish, along with ham, turkey, Swiss cheese, pickles, and a creamy mustard spread.
These only take 10 minutes to prepare! Then, bake for 25 minutes and you've got a lunch, dinner, snack, or appetizer that anyone will love. Ham and cheese is a match that's practically made for sandwiches and now, sandwiches are made for a casserole.
While these sandwiches have "funeral" in the name, you don't have to wait for a somber occasion to try out this recipe! These delicious sandwiches are perfect for sharing at potluck dinners, summer picnics, at game day gatherings, and much more. The next time you're looking for a shareable sandwich recipe, turn to this easy recipe.
Preparation Time10 min
Cooking Time25 min
Cooking Vessel Size9 x 13-inch baking dish
- 2 (12-count) packages of Hawaiian rolls
- 1 package sliced ham
- 1 package sliced turkey
- 1 package sliced Swiss cheese (6 slices), each cut into 4 sqaures to fit the roll
- dill pickle slices
- 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
This recipe was inspired by House of Yumm's reader-favorite recipe for Cuban Sandwich Casserole
Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
Cut the rolls in half. Line the bottoms of the rolls in the baking dish, six across and four down.
Layer the ham, turkey, cheese and pickles on each roll. Place the top of the rolls on top.
Mix the melted butter, Dijon and grainy mustard together. Pour evenly over the top of the rolls.
Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Take off the foil and bake for another 10 minutes until the tops of the rolls are golden.
Cut the sliders and place on a serving platter.
What Are Funeral Sandwiches?
Simply put, funeral sandwiches get their name because they are frequently served at funerals or memorial services. Providing the grieving family with comfort food is a great way to offer your condolences. In fact, the Southern tradition of giving food gifts to the family of the deceased dates as far back as 1779. Funeral sandwiches are easy to make, so they can be quickly prepared and given to the family along with simple baking instructions. The common connection among funeral foods is that the recipes are comforting, simple, and versatile, so this sandwich casserole fits right in.
In addition to somber occasions, funeral recipes like this one are also great for potlucks or whenever you need to feed a large group of people. To prepare these sandwiches, arrange buns in a baking dish with cheese and meat. Then pour a flavorful glaze over the sandwiches and allow them to marinate. When the sandwiches are ready to be made, simply bake them and enjoy a comforting meal.

I love everything about these sandwiches turned casserole. I like ham, turkey, Swiss, and of course, Hawaiian rolls! I will make this as an appetizer dish for a football Sunday I'll tell my family we are trying a new casserole. They will be happy and surprised when they see what it is.

These sound delicious. I made baked sliders for a potluck once and they were a hit! I love dill pickles, so I like that they are already included in this recipe.

This a is wonderful idea for feeding a crowd quickly with a minimum of fuss and bother. I figure that I can change the name if any recipe to whatever I want to call it so I am not bothered as some people are. I'm thinking that Sweet Ham Sliders sounds good.

Despite the rather somber title, this is a really good dish to serve groups of family or friends. I would go the extra step and add in some shredded pork for a closer to the true Cuban sandwich taste. The original recipe does call them Cuban Sliders, which is a more accurate (and tasty) name. I'd be tempted to add just a wee bit of minced garlic as well to the dijon spread.

This recipe sounds really yummy and simple to make. Since I am in Wisconsin, I "get" the name. Casseroles, hot dishes, funeral weenies, are all served in the church fellowship hall after the service is held there. The church ladies usually bring in any number of dishes and desserts to feed the family and guests. It is actually a lovely gesture. So, while we don't like to think of the inevitability of having or attending a funeral, it is nice to have a go-to recipe to bring along to show respect and meet a need for food. I am putting this recipe in my files for an easy and yummy dish to share!

I don't like the name but I understand where it came from. Still it is a delicious combination and since I bring my own food to work, this will be good to make. Thank you.

The amount of ridiculous ads is absolutely INSANE to put it mildly

Hi mrspink67, much like television and radio we are supported by advertising. We are an entirely free website, but I am sorry you are unhappy with your experience! - Natalie, Editor of AllFreeCasseroleRecipes

These are good recipes but sorry, anything that you call "Funeral" whatever is NOT something I will make or look at. I noticed that The Pioneer Woman (on The FoodNetwork) calls something "Funeral Potatoes". While it may be some sort of moniker steeped in tradition, it conjures up something immediately distasteful to me. Sorry, but you should change this "charming" title. By the way, I have this recipe in one form or another from several other sources that DO NOT use such a name ... they call it "Overnight Casserole" or something else. Much more appetizing!

Good idea, thanks!

Could you substitute bread and butter pickles?
Jul 20, 2016
Hi csborgersrode, I think you could definitely try substituting bread and butter pickles. Let us know how it turns out!

Wow, I never thought of this! I might try making this casserole for my next church potluck. Thank you for the recipe!
May 13, 2016
I love these cuban sliders! And what an easy way to make a bunch of sandwiches all at once then to make them in a pan like this! I added a slice of red onion on them with the pickle and it was perfect for us!

Great for Saturday dinner

This is listed as a Funeral Sandwich Casserole but the recipe was for Cuban Sliders....would like to see the name changed to Cuban Sliders.
Apr 29, 2016
Change the name,it sounds disgusting! Cuban Sliders,or whatever.

Hi pm768, we are sorry to hear you don't like the name of this recipe. "Funeral recipes" is simply another way to reference recipes for a potluck. - Natalie, Editor of AllFreeCasseroleRecipes

I agree, "Funeral" ANYTHING, related to food is extremeley poor taste (no pun intended)!!! And, NO NEED to tell me and others who dislike the thought of "funeral" food to "grow up." THROW UP, is more like it! YUCK!

I have never heard of 'Funeral Sandwich' or 'Funeral' recipes, ever. If it Is POTLUCK, then use that name. A new name of 'Funeral anything' sounds disgusting, like something from a FUNERAL HOME, where corpses are being prepared for viewing before burial.

omg, PLEEEEASE grow up.

Guess you don't go to many funeral potlucks...these (and many other things) are common at funeral potlucks and that is how they got their names. The article say nothing about funeral homes so don't be so dramatic.
