Ham and Cheese Sliders


 
   These yummy sandwiches remind me of something my Grandma Jennings would have made for lunch on a Sunday after church. She was such a great cook. Thanksgiving dinners at her house were very elegant and amazing. She would set out all of her best china and silverware, and always use champagne glasses, but it was sparkling apple cider that filled the inside, never alcohol. I thought I was pretty cool drinking from those fancy glasses. To this day, every Thanksgiving I buy sparkling apple cider. It reminds me of her.

   Okay, so where was I? Oh yes, these sliders. They are so delicious. Definitely not the boring everyday ham and cheese sandwich. The poppyseed sauce that you drench over the top is what really makes these things wonderful! The flavor is excellent. These would be perfect to make for a baby or bridal shower, a church or work party, etc. I guarantee you will be asked the recipe!



Ham and Cheese Sliders
Serves 6 (2 sandwiches per serving)
  • 12 good quality Dinner Rolls
  • 12 slices thinly sliced Honey Ham
  • 12 slices Swiss Cheese
Mustard Sauce:
  • 5 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Yellow Mustard
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Minced Onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Poppyseeds

Directions:  Cut the rolls down middle. Place bottom halves of rolls in a 9x13 baking dish. Top each bottom with one slice of ham and one slice of swiss cheese. Cover each roll with their top half.

In a small microwavable-safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave. Whisk in the mustard, minced onion and worcestershire sauce ingredients. Carefully pour the sauce evenly over all of the rolls. Sprinkle the tops of rolls with the poppyseeds. Let stand about 10 minutes or until butter has set slightly. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Remove foil and place back into oven for 2 minutes or until cheese has completley melted. Serve warm.

One of my co-workers makes something like this for our work gatherings (well, let's be honest - his wife makes them). They are SO good! And its been a while since I've had them so thanks for the reminder! I love your recipes, by the way!

I've made these, well, they are similar. The recipe I have doesn't have poppy seeds. But seriously though, they are really, really good! A must-try!

These are adorable! I like the poppyseed sauce on top of the rolls to give them a little something extra.

Yum. Those look fabulous. We make some in the summer on the grill, which reminds me I want to make them soon.

Oh, these look fabulous! I'm definitely going to use these for my son's high school grad party (a year away, but this will start my file!). And they'll probably be tested a few times before that :)

I made these last night and they were fabulous!! I used 6 "Lite" Hamburger Buns (watching my figure!) and they worked out perfectly. Delicious! I can't wait to eat the leftover for lunch today! Thanks for sharing!

Lisa said...

Made these this week and they were a huge hit! Should have doubled the batch. I used Hawaiian mini sub rolls and it was awesome. I have one non-ham eater in the house so I made hers with turkey and she said it was delish!
