Sweet Ham & Swiss Sliders

These little sliders have been seen everywhere over the past few months - superbowl parties, blog posts, talked about on cooking boards, and of course they are being pinned to Pinterest like crazy.

I needed to find a reason to make them, so when I was planning my Easter Brunch I added them to the menu. I served them along side this Spinach Pie and a light arugula salad that I promise to post soon!

My parents had just served ham at a family dinner the day before, and with so much leftover I was able to use it to make these sandwiches. They couldn't have been easier to put together so they would make a great dinner for a weeknight when you need something quick. I was expecting these to be good but wow, I couldn't get enough of them! I ate 2 and then split one with my sister. I loved the melted cheese and the sauce on top was to die for. Somehow we had a few leftover and even the next day they were really good.

These sliders are featured on a lot of blogs, but I used the recipe Melissa posted on her blog I Was Born to Cook. She used onion rolls, but I just used 12 potato dinner rolls which fit perfectly in my baking dish. I was also able to use a little less ham than her recipe called for. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. 

Sweet Ham & Swiss Sliders
Source: Adapted from I Was Born to Cook

  • 12 Potato Dinner Rolls, separated into tops and bottoms
  • 12 slices ham, each sliced in half (see picture above) or 24 slices of ham
  • 24 slices Swiss cheese (dinner roll size each, so you can probably just use 12 slices, sliced)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place bottom halves of rolls in a baking dish - one that fits the rolls so they sit snugly would work best. 
  • Top each with cheese, then ham, then another slice of cheese. 
  • Spread a little mayonnaise on each top half roll and place on top of ham and cheese.  
  • Combine mustard, butter, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar in a small bowl. Mix until combined. Pour evenly over rolls. Cover with foil and refrigerate until ready to bake (or bake right away).
  • Bake covered for 10 minutes, then remove foil and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until tops are browned and cheese is melted.
