Ham & Cheese Sliders {With a Tasty Twist}

Do you need a quick weeknight dinner on a hearty appetizer for a get together?  If so, these are PERFECT.  I have made them several times and I just love them.  I have seen them posted on many food blogs and I know there is good reason for that!  These take a simple sandwich and transform them into something special with an easy sauce that tastes spectacular.  I have seen these sandwiches SO many places.  I think the first time was in a magazine years back...maybe Taste of Home or Quick Cooking? I have recently seen them on allrecipes, Tasty Kitchen, and a favorite blog of mine, The Girl Who Ate Everything.  Give them a try!

Ham & Cheese Sliders

24 good white dinner rolls (I prefer to use King Hawaiian Rolls, they really add another flavor dimension)
24 pieces good honey ham

24 small slices Swiss cheese (I sometimes do half Swiss, half sharp cheddar & both are delicious)

1/3 cup mayonnaise

1/3 cup miracle whip

Poppy seed sauce

1 T poppy seeds

1 1/2 T yellow mustard

1 stick butter, melted
1 T minced onion 
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and miracle whip. Spread lightly onto both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet. Place very close together.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients. Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes. Serve warm.

** sandwiches can be assembled a day ahead and kept in the fridge ready to bake.


  1. YUM! These look delicious! I do have a question... You say in the directions to pour the poppyseed sauce evenly over all of the sandwiches, but do you pour it over the TOP of the rolls? Or do you take the tops off, and pour that sauce over the ham/cheese and THEN put the tops of the rolls back on? Thanks!

  2. Yes, right over the buns! I actually like to use my basting brush to evenly spread it over the rolls, that is a little easier for me.
