These hot ham and cheese sliders are super easy to make – all you need to do is layer some dinner rolls with ham, cheddar or swiss cheese, and top them with a grainy mustard – Worcestershire glaze. Bake until they’re hot and the cheese is gooey melted and you’ve got the perfect bite!
You can use any type of ham (I usually choose black forest) or slice leftover baked ham and any type of dinner rolls. King Hawaiian are my favorite rolls for this recipe, they’re soft and sweet and make the best Hawaiian ham and cheese sliders.
Ham and swiss is a classic pairing but I’ve used so many different cheeses in this slider recipe, all with great success! White cheddar, provolone, and mozzarella are all delicious!
The topping adds a ton of flavor and you can easily modify it to your likes! Make these ham and cheese sliders with garlic powder or Italian seasoning. You can make it without poppy seeds or dijon mustard if you prefer and add a pinch of horse radish or even brown sugar.
How to make it:
WHAT YOU NEED:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 tablespoon honey mustard
1 tablespoon minced dried onion
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
15 King’s Hawaiian rolls
1 pound thinly sliced ham
About 10 slices Havarti cheese
HOW TO MAKE THIS :
1. If you are preparing this to eat right now, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the butter, mustard, onion and Worcestershire sauce.
3. Slice the rolls in half. The easiest way to do this is if you open the package and slice the entire chunk of rolls in half while they are still stuck together. Pull apart the bottoms of the rolls and place them in the prepared dish. Fold up pieces of ham to fit the rolls and place them on the bottom halves of the rolls. Layer a piece of cheese next, then more ham, then more cheese. Place the tops of the rolls onto the sliders. Drizzle a teaspoon of the buttery mixture over the top of each roll. If you have some of this mixture left over, you can make a few more sliders. Otherwise, drizzle the rest of the mixture over the tops of the sliders.
4. If baking now, place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes- until the sliders are warmed, the cheese is melted and the tops of the rolls are lightly browned. If baking tomorrow, cover the pan with a sheet of greased foil and refrigerate. The next day, bake for 20 minutes with the foil on, then remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately!
