These sliders. They’re one of the easiest things to put together, and also one of the most delicious – two things that usually don’t go hand in hand. I first made them for Andrew’s birthday party the year before last – the Dr. Seuss party. Everyone gobbled them up, and raved about them…so I knew I was onto something very good.
We’ve been making them since. Sometimes I make homemade dinner rolls, and sometimes I pick up a package of King’s Hawaiian rolls at the store and call it a night. Then it’s just a matter of assembling the deli ham and cheese on the buns, then drizzling them in this delicious sauce…that’s hard not to site there and eat with a spoon. Bake in the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese, and voila! I usually pair with a simple side like potato salad or sweet potato fries for an easy meal.
For lunch, dinner, or even as a munchie for game day – these sliders are always a winner that is sure to please everyone!
Ham and Cheese Sliders
12 dinner rolls
18 slices deli ham
6 slices Swiss cheese
For the sauce:
5 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp onion, finely minced
1 Tbsp spicy brown mustard
3 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp kosher salt
Slice dinner rolls in half. Pile 1 1/2 pieces of ham onto the bottom of each bun, along with 1/2 piece of Swiss cheese and then top with the other half of the bun. Place in 2 quart baking dish. Repeat with remaining rolls.
To prepare the sauce, heat the butter, brown sugar, mustard, Worcestershire, onion, and salt in a small sauce pan, whisking until smooth and melted.
Drizzle glaze over sandwiches and sprinkle with poppy seeds.
Cover pan with foil and bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
