Here’s a sandwich recipe that is perfect for parties: Baked Ham and Cheese Sliders
Is anyone getting excited about the Superbowl yet? I suppose you’re only really excited if your team has made it into the final playoffs. My beloved Chargers didn’t make it this year (Grrrr!) But my son is overjoyed that his Patriots are in the running, and the Seattle part of my family adores the Seahawks too. So if one of those guys makes it to the big day, I will be happy! Of course food is the best part of Superbowl Sunday, so let’s make some sliders!
I’ve seen different versions of these baked sliders around the internet for quite some time now. And this is the first time I’ve ever made them! Using King’s Hawaiian rolls is key to their success. We’re kind of addicted to them around my house. Plenty of ham and havarti cheese are stuffed inside, and a buttery mixture is drizzled on top.
I shared my sliders with some neighbors who stopped by to watch the game. You can make them same day, or you can prep them the day before and bake the next day.
I fell in love with them, and my neighbors were into them too. They’re a hearty treat with all of that ham and cheese, that buttery mixture soaked in, and they get slightly toasted on top. YUM. These would be a great addition to a Superbowl party, and they’d be great for any other sort of friendly gathering too.
Yield: 15 sliders
Prep Time: 25 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Baked Ham and Cheese Sliders
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
1. If you are preparing this to eat right now, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13-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!
