Ham and Cheese Sliders
We used up the last of our Easter ham leftovers last night with one of my favorite recipes. Not only are these mini hot ham and cheese sandwiches yummy, but they are really quick and easy to make. I typically used sliced ham from the deli when I make them for parties or showers, but they were really good with the left over honey glazed ham from Easter too!
What you need:
1 dozen King Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
12 slices of deli ham (or 1/4 - 1/2 lb leftover Easter ham)
6 slices of Swiss cheese
1 1/2 t dried minced onions
1 1/2 t mustard (Dijon is good but good old yellow mustard works too)
1 1/2 t poppy seeds
4 T butter, melted (1/2 a stick of butter)
What you do:
Preheat oven to 325°
Keeping the rolls together in a 'sheet', slice them in half so you have a top and bottom bun.
Place the bottom 'sheet' of rolls in a 9x13 pan. Cover the rolls with ham, Swiss cheese, and then the top half of the rolls.
In a small bowl mix melted butter, minced onions, mustard, and poppy seeds. Drizzle the mixture evenly over the top of the mini sandwiches.
Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
After you remove them from the oven, carefully separate the mini sandwiches with a knife.
Eat the yummy hot ham and cheese sandwiches.
I also love to make these in the middle of the day and then cover them with foil and keep them in the fridge until dinner time. They usually take about 5 minutes longer in the oven to get warm.
I have heard you can make them way ahead of time and freeze them too. You just pop them in the fridge overnight to thaw. I may have to try it so I can use them as a 'freezer meal'.
