These ham and cheese sliders consist of honey ham and Havarti cheese layered on some Hawaiian rolls and brushed with a garlic butter mixture. The quickest and easiest recipe you could make to feed a crowd.
These ham and cheese sliders are perfect and super convenient for a last-minute lunch or quick snack. Trust me, no one in your family will complain if you serve them these little sliders. Traditionally a lot of folks like to spread mayo or mustard on their sandwiches so you can do that but when you’re serving a large crowd I recommend serving it on the side. If the entire family enjoys mayo and mustard on their sandwiches then feel free to spread some on before baking them.
How Do You Make Ham and Cheese Sliders?
Start off by preparing the topping. To prepare the topping, melt the butter in a small bowl and then stir in the poppy seeds, minced garlic, oregano, and salt. Brush the baking dish with 1 tbsp of the butter topping and set aside. Slice the dinner rolls in half and place the bottom half on the baking pan. Top the rolls with ham and cheese, place the top rolls on top and cover with the remaining butter topping. Frate some fresh parmesan cheese on top, cover, and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F. for 20 minutes. FInally uncover and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
What Kind of Ham and Cheese Should I Use?
Thinly sliced honey ham and Havarti cheese are what I like to use. You can also use Baked Ham With Brown Sugar Glaze. I recommend adding 1/2 lb of ham and 5-6 slices of cheese for 12 sliders.
Tips For The Perfect Ham and Cheese Sliders
- Add 1 tbsp of dijon mustard to the butter mixture if you love mustard in your ham and cheese sandwiches.
- Add some pickles to the sliders before baking if you enjoy a tangy taste.
- Make your own Dinner Rolls from scratch if you’d like.
Do I Have To Use Poppy Seeds?
Poppy seeds give these sliders a bit of a crunch and if you’re a fan of poppy seed bagels then you will love the idea of adding the seeds to the butter mixture. Although feel free to omit them if you don’t have any on hand.
How To Make Ahead
Assemble the ham and cheese sliders without the poppy seed topping and freeze up to 3 months. You can bake them directly from the freezer, just prepare the butter topping and brush the sliders when they’re almost cooked.
