Crazy Delicious Ham and Cheese Sliders.
Happy 2013! Woot woot!! I’m getting caught up here on some delicious food I had over the holidays.
1) I should have posted this recipe before Jan. 1st because now most people are vowing to eat healthy and lose weight. . and these are far from being healthy
2) HOWEVER, these sliders are freaking delicious so if you have leftover HAM, you need to take a moment to look at this recipe
These sliders are the perfect combination of sweet, tangy, meaty and cheesy. They are seriously delicious. And dangerous.
These need to be shared. .
So, when you’re watching the NFL Playoffs . . you need to cook these up for your husband, boyfriend, significant other, girlfriends, neighbors, cousins, friends. You get the idea. Or hell, you need to break these out for the Super Bowl. Word.
Big thanks to my friend Jennifer Pham, who made these for me and my family while we were in Dallas. We were all blown away and proceeded to make these again when we got home. Jen had the brilliant idea of using King’s Hawaiian sweet dinner rolls for this. Freaking genius.
I hope you enjoy!
- 16 Kings Hawaiian sweet dinner rolls, cut in half
- 24 slices honey-roasted ham
- 16 slices swiss or gruyere cheese
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 1½ tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 8 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- On a rimmed baking sheet or casserole dish, place the bottom half of dinner rolls and top with 1½ slices of ham and the cheese.
- Spread about 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise on each TOP-half of the outside TOP roll and place on top of the ham and cheese. (this is helping to create the delicious topping that coats these sliders’ rolls). Place the rolls snugly together in your casserole dish.
- In a separate small bowl combine the mustard, melted butter, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, poppy seeds, and brown sugar. Mix until well combined and evenly pour or spread over the assembled rolls.
- Cover with foil and refrigerate until ready to bake.
- Bake covered with foil for 10 minutes, remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the tops are browned, and cheese is nice and melted.
