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. They’re then baked to perfection. We love this recipe for party appetizers but you can also pop them on the grill at tailgates too.

HAM AND CHEESE SLIDERS INGREDIENTS

A close up of food, with Cheese and Slider

You Will Need:

  • Package sweet Hawaiian rolls (12 rolls)
  • 1 pound thinly sliced ham
  • 1 package Swiss cheese (12 slices)
  • ¼ cup mayo
  • ½ stick butter
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • ½ tbsp dried minced onion
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

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

CHEESE: I love Swiss cheese for these sliders, but you could also use cheddar. Monterrey Jack, pepper jack, mozzarella, provolone or white cheddar 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 recipe the very best but you can also use plain dinner rolls, potato slider buns or small plain hamburger buns.

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

HOW TO MAKE HAM AND CHEESE SLIDERS

PRO TIP: You can assemble these 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: Slice rolls down the middle and leave intact – do not separate into individual servings! 

STEP TWO: Spread mayo on the bottom layer of the rolls and place in the bottom of the pan. Make sure use cooking spray in the bottom of the pan. I will often even use disposable pans when we are going tailgating because I love easy cleanup! 

STEP THREE: Next, place ham in an even layer, then top with an even layer of cheese before placing the top half of the rolls on top.

STEP FOUR: Mix melted butter, Dijon mustard, honey, poppy seeds, minced onion, and Worcestershire sauce until mixed and pour evenly over rolls.

STEP FIVE: Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and the tops are golden brown. 

STORAGE

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. You can freeze for up to three months. Allow to thaw for about 30 minutes before baking.

Filled with flavor, these ham and cheese sliders are the ultimate in cheesy comfort food. A great option for tailgating, to serve at a game day party or as a family dinner, you’ll love how hearty and delicious these are — and so quick and easy to make, too!
