Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese

I saw this recipe today on food gawker and my mouth was watering. I've been obsessed with buffalo lately, I love the flavor! These grilled cheese are super easy to make, I kinda made it up as I went along so there aren't exact measurements.

2 cans of chicken (this saves a ton of time, but feel free to use shredded chicken)
buffalo wing sauce
red onion

Heat a flat pan on medium heat.
Meanwhile, drain chicken and combine with buffalo sauce in a bowl. I added enough buffalo sauce to make it look like tuna with mayo, make sense? Grate cheese and add it to the meat & sauce mixture, you want a good amount since this is a grilled cheese after-all. Chop up a little red onion and mix it in too.
Take two pieces of bread and butter one side of one slice. Put a good amount of the meat mixture on the bread (with butter on the outside). Take your other piece of bread and butter one side then place it on top of the sandwich.
Grill on flat pan til both sides are golden brown. Cut in half and enjoy!

Hawaiian Baked Ham & Swiss

I tried a new recipe tonight and we quite enjoyed it. I found it on Pinterest and of course you never know how recipes from Pinterest will turn out. But I took a chance on this one and we liked it. The sweetness of the rolls mixed with the onions in the sauce was a fantastic combination.

Here is the recipe, but I originally found it here, I only modified it to feed fewer people.

1 pkg. Hawaiian rolls (you only need 9 of the 12 rolls)
6 large slices of honey ham fresh from the deli
4 slices of swiss cheese
6 T. butter
2-3 T. mustard
1 T worcestershire sauce
1/2 onion, chopped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Melt butter in pan, add onion, mustard & worcestershire sauce-simmer for 3-5 minutes
Grease 8x8 pan. Take 9 rolls being careful to keep them connected and slice in half. You'll have two halves with the rolls still connected.
Place the bottom half of the rolls in the 8x8 pan and pour 1/3 of the sauce over the rolls. Layer ham & cheese over the rolls and cover with top half of the rolls.
Pour remaining sauce over the top. Cover and cook 15-20 minutes. 
Cut into 9 sandwiches for serving.
