Description

These Darn Good Ham and Cheese Sliders may look like any other sandwich, but they are so much better. They are darn good.

Ingredients

  • 12 whole Hawaiian Rolls, Split
  • 12 slices Deli Ham
  • 6 slices Deli Provolone Cheese, Halved
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1-½ teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • ¼ teaspoons Poppy Seeds

Preparation

Preheat your oven to 350 F.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick foil. Assemble the sandwiches with a slice of ham and a half slice of cheese on the bottom half of each roll and top with the top half of the roll. Place the assembled sandwiches close together on the baking sheet.

In a small bowl combine the butter, sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Microwave until the butter is just melted, about 30-60 seconds. Add the poppy seeds and stir until combined.

Drizzle the butter mixture evenly over the sandwiches. Bake in the oven until the cheese has melted and the butter mixture starts to caramelize, about 10 minutes. Serve warm.

I love this recipe, and I’d like to try it. However, I currently have my oven repaired. Is there any alternative that I can use aside from the Oven. How about heating it in a pan with melted butter?

Delicious – I’ve made these for years and have always put the sauce on the inside. Tried it on top, made them messy and slightly less flavorful (in our opinion) . Good recipe, but I’ll stick with putting the sauce on the bread, instead of on top.

Made for dinner tonight….they were great! Except…..they didn’t pair well with last night’s leftover spaghetti!

Absolutely outstanding. I bought the family pack of hawaiian rolls which was qty 18. Because of this I increased the sauce ingredients by 1/3. I used 1/2 lb shaved honey ham and 1/2 lb shaved smoked turkey. On half the bread i used muenster cheese and the other half I used provolone cheese. After baking I lifted the foil onto a cutting board to cut the individual sandwiches and then carefully slid the foil back into the pan to keep the sandwiches warm. These were delicious and my guests raved about them and wanted the recipe. Next time I think I will try assembling the sandwiches in advance, without sauce, and wrapping tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate, then pour the sauce over just before baking and bake a few extra minutes if needed. I definitely felt the poppy seeds were a worthy investment and really added the right touch to the taste of the sandwiches.

Fantastic! I’ve made sliders with this, and larger sandwiches on Kaiser rolls. The sauce makes it, as does baking until the cheese melts. Like others, I think it’s much better with the sauce on the inside rather than outside.

Great recipe! I was really worried the bread would get soggy but it didn’t! It did this glazed, sugary coating on top and bottom. Thank you!

Really good. We used half the amount of butter, it probably made the other ingredients more concentrated and maybe changed how they came out a little- I’ve never had them the regular way- but I thought they still tasted great with a little less guilt.
