These ham and cheese sliders are addictive and ridiculously delicious. Sweet and savory ham, nutty melted Swiss cheese, nestled between sweet and buttery Hawaiian rolls and smothered with a sticky butter zesty sauce! What could be better for your next game day, potluck, brunch or even dinner!
I recommend getting good quality thinly sliced ham from the deli department, but pre-sliced ham will work as well. These are an excellent make ahead option so read my note on how to prep them in advance. These are best served fresh and warm but can be reheated in a low oven IF you have leftovers....but I'm guessing you won't!
1 package 12 count Hawaiian sweet rolls sliced in half horizontally
¾ pound very thinly sliced deli ham
½ pound very thinly slice swiss cheese
1 stick of butter melted
¼ cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
2 teaspoons dried minced onions
1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons granulated onion
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Slice the rolls in half as a whole unit with a serrated knife.
Line a baking pan (9 by 12) or cookie sheet with aluminum foil then place the bottom half of the sliced rolls on top.
On the bottom half of the rolls evenly layer half the ham, next evenly layer all of the cheese, then layer the rest of the ham, and finally place the top half of the rolls.
In a small mixing bowl whisk to combine the remaining ingredients to make the “sauce” then pour evenly over the prepared rolls.
Let the “sauce” sit for 15 minutes then bake at 400 degrees covered for 20 minutes.
Next, remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes until the rolls are lightly browned.
*Note: These can be made ahead by prepping the rolls layered with the ham and cheese, cover and refrigerate overnight. Prepare the sauce and keep in a microwave safe container and refrigerate. When you are ready to bake off the rolls, remove from the refrigerator for 15 minutes, heat the “sauce” in the microwave and whisk the ingredients until well combined, then pour over the rolls and bake as directed above.
