Ham and Swiss Party Buns - Perfect for Mother's Day!

Happy Monday everyone!  How's every little thing going?

Things are well with me and I'm super excited to be heading toward the warmer months. Next week, my husband and I are taking a mini vacation back to Tofino for a little R and R, whale watching, and general relaxing and doing nothing.

In the meantime, though, I've been in the kitchen cooking up a storm - starting with today's recipe for Ham and Swiss Party Buns!

Mini rolls packed with ham and Swiss cheese are drenched in a tangy sweet marinade over night and then baked to ooey gooey perfection!

This is one of those old time recipes that are great to have in your back pocket for bridal showers, Mother's Day, or other casual celebrations.
