Ham and cheese sliders are the perfect snack for any gathering, be it a party, tailgate, or casual get-together with friends and family. They’re super convenient for hosting since you can make a big batch at once (double the recipe if you need to) and prep them ahead of time. Soft, fluffy buns (King’s Hawaiian rolls are a fave) are filled with sliced ham and melted Swiss cheese, but the real star is the tangy butter sauce brushed on before baking. Made with Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, and poppy seeds, the sauce gives the sliders a bold, buttery flavor that’ll have everyone coming back for more. Trust me, make extra because they go quickly!
What you’ll need to make Ham and cheese sliders
Begin by making the tangy butter sauce. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt and poppy seeds.
Whisk to combine.
Using serrated bread knife, cut the rolls in half, leaving the top and bottom halves intact.
Spread Dijon mustard over the cut side of the rolls.
Place the bottom half, cut side up, in a 9-inch square metal baking pan.
Place half of the cheese in an even layer over the bottom.
Follow with all of the ham.
Finally, add the remaining cheese.
Cover with the roll tops.
Evenly spoon the butter sauce over the top, letting it drip down the sides.
Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, until the top is golden brown and toasted.
Let cool for 15 to 20 minutes in the pan. Using a large spatula, carefully transfer the sandwich block to a cutting board.
Using a serrated knife, slice into mini sandwiches.
Serve the ham and cheese sliders warm or at room temperature.
