These easy homemade ham and cheese sliders are so satisfying. Sweet rolls are layered with ham and cheese before being drizzled in the most delicious honey poppy seed sauce and then baked to perfection.

HAM AND CHEESE SLIDERS INGREDIENTS

Ham and Cheese Sliders raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • Package sweet Hawaiian rolls (12 rolls)
  • 1 pound thinly sliced deli ham
  • 1 package Swiss cheese (12 slices)
  • ¼ cup mayonaisse
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • ½ tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

MEAT: For this Swiss sliders recipe, you can use your favorite flavor of ham such as roasted or honey ham, or you can use leftover baked ham, thinly sliced. You can also substitute turkey, chicken, or roast beef deli meat. Cook up some bacon nice and crispy to add to the sliders either as whole strips or crumbles. 

CHEESE: I love Swiss cheese for these Hawaiian roll sliders, but you could also use other types of cheese including cheddar. Monterrey Jack, pepper Jack, Colby Jack, mozzarella, provolone, white cheddar, or Havarti cheese are other great options. You can even add extra layers to make cheesier sliders if you’d like! 

ROLLS: I love sweet Hawaiian rolls for this great recipe the most but you can also use plain dinner rolls, potato slider buns, or small plain hamburger buns.

SPICY: Add a layer of banana peppers or pickled jalapeños in your sliders for an extra kick. 

HOW TO MAKE THIS HAM AND CHEESE SLIDERS RECIPE

PRO TIP:

You can assemble these Swiss cheese sliders up to two days before baking and leave them covered in the fridge until you’re ready to pop them in the oven. If you are starting them off cold, you might need to add a few extra minutes in the oven to compensate.

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

STEP TWO: Slice rolls down the middle and leave intact – do not separate into individual servings! 

STEP THREE: Spread mayonnaise on the bottom layer of the rolls and place it in the bottom of the prepared pan.

PRO TIP:

I will often use disposable pans to make this recipe because I love easy cleanup.

STEP FOUR: Place ham slices in an even layer, then top with an even layer of Swiss cheese before placing the top half of the rolls on top.

STEP FIVE: In a small bowl, mix melted butter, Dijon mustard, honey, poppy seeds, minced onion, and Worcestershire sauce until mixed, and pour butter mixture evenly over top of the rolls.

PRO TIP:

Don’t skimp on the butter. It soaks into all the nooks and crannies and adds a ton of flavor to both the top and the bottom half of the slider buns.

STEP SIX: Cover with foil and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the melted cheese is bubbly and the tops of the rolls are golden brown. 

HOW TO SERVE

These Hawaiian ham and cheese sliders are great for a party appetizer or even for an easy lunch or quick dinner. Add a salad on the side such as our dill pickle pasta salad or egg pasta salad.

For dessert, add a slice of our amazing Swiss cake roll!

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: These are best eaten right away, but you can store leftovers in the fridge and reheat for later. I would suggest first wrapping with plastic wrap and then adding a second layer of aluminum foil.

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze for up to three months. Allow them to thaw for about 30 minutes before baking.

    I made these for a super bowl gathering. Everyone LOVED them and I got so many compliments. So easy, so flavourful and such a nice change from the usual party appetizers.
