Ham and Swiss Cheese Sliders
- For the Rolls:
12 soft dinner rolls (such as a package of Hawaiian sweet rolls), sliced in half keeping the rolls attached to each other
½ – ¾ lb deli ham, such as black forest, thinly sliced
¾ lb Swiss cheese slices
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
- For the Butter Sauce:
6 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
4 tsp poppy seeds
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp fine salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 9×13 baking dish with aluminum foil.
- Slice the rolls in half to have 12 connected rolls making the “tops” and 12 connected rolls making the “bottoms”. Don’t pull them apart or slice them individually. Keep them connected.
- Brush the bottom slabs and the top slabs liberally with mustard. You can use less mustard, but in my opinion, a strong mustard flavor is what makes this dish.
- Layer ham evenly between the top and bottom slabs. Then top with Swiss cheese. Set the bottom slab into the prepared dish and gently top it with the top slab.
- Combine all of the butter sauce ingredients and pour all over the rolls, do so evenly and use a spatula or a cooking brush to help spread the mixture.
- Lay a sheet of parchment paper on top of the rolls (to prevent sticking,) then cover them with aluminum foil.
- Bake in preheated oven for 20-22 minutes until hot and the cheese is bubbling. Uncover and bake for another 3-5 minutes until the tops are browned and firm. Baking time will vary and depend on various things, including the size of your rolls. Slice your rolls, serve and enjoy!
