If you ever make a ham and cheese sandwich for the rest of your life, you’ve got to make these. Like, really, have to make them.
A few weeks ago I was heading out to scrapbook with a few friends for the weekend, and we each bring along a dish to share. While I’ve made these before, I was in a hurry and did a quick google search and found A Thrifty Mom’s recipe for Ham and Cheese Sliders, and oh-my-word, I’m so glad I did! I will never make these sandwiches another way.
I’ve never made sliders before using brown sugar, but these were heavenly. I left my husband a batch at home for the weekend and he devoured them, in the midst of surviving three kids all by himself for the weekend. normally that’s not a big deal, but he was on crutches so I figured the least I could do was cook for him! (And yes, he’s still on crutches . . . two more weeks. Remind me to tell y’all the mace story that happened while I was gone later . . . eek.)
Next up I’ve got to try Sarah’s recipe for Spiced Zucchini Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting, but if you’re looking for some sliders for dinner tonight, here you go!
2 -12 packages of sweet hawaiian rolls (the small dinner roll looking ones)
1 1/2 lbs of virginia ham (NOT honey ham)
12 slices swiss cheese
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons dried onion
1 You will need two 9 x 13 pans. Place the bottoms of 12 rolls in each pan. Place ham (about 2 shaved slices or so) on the rolls. Cut the cheese slices into 4 parts and place 2 small pieces on each sandwich. Put the dinner roll tops on. In a sauce pan, mix butter, dijon mustard, worcestershire sauce, and dried onions. Wait until all butter is melted and then pour the melted mixture over the ham sandwiches (I know it sounds weird but TRUST me). Sprinkle the buns with poppy seeds and cover with foil. Let refrigerate overnight (If not able to wait, it is okay. They still taste great if made right away). Preheat oven to 350 and uncover sandwiches. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes and serve. They are great hot and even at room temperature Enjoy!
