Little Ham & Cheese Sliders

Peaches and Cream Bars

So I have to tell you, when I finally served these to the young men at church last Sunday after playing with modifications to this recipe for weeks …

Peaches and Cream Bars

… they squealed like little girls.

I knew these little sliders were great, but I figured I needed to see what all the excitement was about.  So since I wasn’t really hungry, after eating a full breakfast, I sampled 3 or maybe 4 of them.

And when it was time to head to the rest of our meetings, a huge problem presented itself.  After eating 3 or maybe 5, I (a) didn’t want to stop and (b) see a.

Looking for a WOW Response?

Seems like everyone has a version of these delightful little ham and cheese sliders in their virtual recipe box and there’s a reason for that. I’ve never seen anyone not happily dive into them.  They taste fantastic, can be assembled in no time and trust me, your family will LOVE them (and you) if you serve them for dinner.  I first found this wonderful recipe from ourrecipeclub.blogspot.com.  I liked it a lot, but I wanted even more of a WOW response – so I tweaked it.  And once it got even better, I tweaked it again!

If you’re looking for a wonderful quick and easy dish to serve for dinner this week or at your next party – this is it!

Great Make Ahead Dish

You already know how much I like to have folks over for dinner, but sometimes I’m so beat by the time they arrive, I can’t even enjoy their company.  These little sliders offer the perfect solution.   You can make them ahead of time, and then when your guests arrive, just brush on the butter mixture and pop ’em in the oven!   Done.

It’s really easy.  Here’s how.

Start by cutting one or more sheets of Kings Hawaiian rolls in half, while keeping the sheet together, like this.  (Keeping the sheets together makes it easier when working with larger batches.)

Next, just stack your cheese and cut it in quarters.  Like this.

Peaches and Cream Bars

Liberally slather the cut side of each roll sheet (top and bottom) with the Miracle Whip/Mayonnaise mixture.   Then place about ¾ ounces of ham on each roll.

You can certainly increase the ham if you wish, but if you’re on a budget – this amount is fine.

Then add 2 of the quarter-slices of cheese like so.

If you’re not serving immediately, you can refrigerate or freeze them at this point.  Otherwise, if you’re ready to serve, slap on the bun tops, pour on this wonderful butter sauce…

… and pop ’em in the oven for 12 – 15 minutes at 350 degrees.  And you’re rewarded with this…

I ask you, who wouldn’t squeal like a little girl when confronted with that??

Great Large Group Recipe

These are also the perfect large group recipe to feed a crowd.  Everyone goes wild for them at youth activities, graduation parties or family reunions.   When cooking for a crowd, it’s important to rely on recipes that can be made in advance.  These babies can be assembled (without the dressing and before baking), wrapped well with plastic wrap and refrigerated up to 24 hours.  Or, if you’re planning further in advance, they can be frozen (without the dressing and before baking), wrapped well with plastic wrap and aluminum foil for up to 2 weeks.  When you’re ready to serve, just whip up a batch of the dressing, pour it on and bake for about 15 minutes.  This should be done right before serving as they are best hot and gooey from the oven.

I would normally call a recipe, like the one serving 60 below, a Crowd-sized version, except I truly believe that Jeff and I and our 4 dinner club friends (or perhaps just me) could polish them all off with little effort.   They are really that good.

Serves 12 mini sliders Source: adapted from ourrecipeclub.blogspot.com 

Course: Appetizer, Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 sliders
Author: Betsy Edwards
Ingredients
  • 12 small white dinner rolls (I use Kings Hawaiian, sweet rolls)
  • 4 tablespoons butter - softened
  • 1 pound deli sliced ham
  • 6 slices Monterey Jack or Baby Swiss cheese - you can use regular Swiss too
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Miracle Whip
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Dressing
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) – melted for 30 seconds on high in microwave
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
Special Equipment
  • 1 (9 x 13) baking pan
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Cut each Swiss cheese slice into quarters. Set aside.

  3. Keeping rolls in single sheets, using a long serrated bread knife, slice rolls in half from side to side. Keep sheets intact as much as possible.  Spread cut side of each half sheet of rolls with 4 tablespoons butter total.  Toast sheets, butter side down, in non-stick pan until cut side is golden brown and crunchy.  Set roll sheets aside.

  4. In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, Miracle Whip and garlic powder. Spread mixture on both cut sides of each roll sheet (top and bottom halves).  Keeping the rolls in sheets enables this to go much quicker.  Divide ham between sandwiches and place 2 quarters of of Swiss cheese on the bottom half of each roll. Close rolls and place them in the baking pan. 

  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients.

  6. Pour dressing evenly over all of the sandwiches, using all of the dressing and covering all of the sandwich tops.  Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly. Bake, covered lightly with aluminum foil, at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes or until tops are slightly brown and crispy. Serve warm.

MAKE AHEAD NOTE:
  1. Sandwiches can be assembled, but not drizzled with dressing, wrapped well with plastic wrap and refrigerated up to 24 hours or frozen, wrapped will with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil for up to 2 weeks.   Defrost several hours in the refrigerator.   In either case, don't add the drizzle before refrigerating or freezing.  Dressing can be made in advance and refrigerated separately up to 2 days.
