Prepare frozen small biscuits or rolls according to package directions.  Cut biscuits/rolls in half and brush liberally with mustard butter.  Put a thick piece of ham, or a stack of thin slices, cut to size, on each biscuit/roll bottom and replace top.  Place biscuits/rolls into pan or casserole dish and brush with remaining butter sauce.  Bake at 325 degrees for 15-20 minutes until hot.
