Hot Ham & Cheddar Sliders


Hot Ham & Cheddar Sliders

You've probably seen a couple versions of this tasty little sandwich floating around Pinterest.  I get a lot of my inspiration from Pinterest these days.  For those of you who aren't pinning, you're missing out on a goldmine of recipe inspiration.  If you're not following me, you totally should be.  I pin some wicked good stuff.  I'm a pinning fool!  (Find my boards here! )

Anyhoo, let me tell you about these sandwiches, or should I say little bites of heaven. Yeah, people.  They're that good.  I am SO GLAD I stumbled across these little beauts. 

First of all, they're so easy to throw together.  Ridiculously easy.

Second, they elevate an otherwise boring lunchtime ham and cheese into something very dinner worthy.

Third, everyone loves them!  Me, my husband and my three year old all scarf these down like they're going out of style.  I even made them for my daughters second birthday party!

What makes these sliders so special is the combination of the sweet roll and the savory sauce on top.  Don't skip the sauce.  You'll be missing the star of the sandwich if you do.  And DON'T skip the poppy seeds!  Go out and buy a small thing of them before you make this even if you think you'll never use that many poppy seeds in your life, because I promise you, you'll be making these again.

So, go on.  Make them for a party.  Make them for lunch.  Make them for dinner.  Just make them!

Ingredients
  • 24 King's Hawaiian rolls (The small ones, however, I have used the hamburger bun size when that's all I had.)
  • 24 slices of ham
  • 24 slices of cheddar cheese 
  • 1½ tbsp yellow mustard
  • 8 tbsp butter, melted
  • ½ tsp wocestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp minced onion
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°.
  2. Slice open the buns.  If you buy the Hawaiian rolls as I've recommended, they come with 12 rolls all stuck together, so cut them in one big piece before you pull them apart.  (So much easier than cutting through 12 individual rolls.)
  3. Place one slice of ham and one slice of cheese on each roll. (Fold the slices up to make them fit on the tiny buns.)  Place the sandwiches on a cookie sheet with the sides of the sandwiches touching each other.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients to make the sauce.  Pour the sauce over the tops of the sandwiches.  
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes.  Remove the foil and cook for an additional 2 minutes.  Serve warm.

Notes
  • Make ahead and keep in the fridge until you're ready to bake them.
  • Perfect for feeding a crowd!  (Did I hear someone say Super Bowl?)
  • I've also made these with turkey and swiss.  Sub the meat and cheese with whatever you like!
