I have committed to making dinner even easier for myself in this new year all while actually MAKING dinner. Isn’t that half the battle? All too often, I rely on quesadillas, grilled cheese and cereal to get us by. And while there is no judgement over those items (I love me a good grilled cheese!), I am just trying to put forth more effort for my family. I make these Easy Ham & Cheese Sliders every now and then, and they do not disappoint! What’s better? They are even yummier as leftovers. So, plan to throw the extras in the fridge for super quick and easy lunches.
Therefore, I’ll get straight to it. These would also be really fantastic with leftover chicken, turkey or even sloppy joe mix. You could switch up the meats and the cheeses to really create a great variety of slider meals that your family can enjoy. I have plenty of days where I just need a simple meal option that feels comforting, easy and that is filling for my people. This is it! Give it a try and let me know in the comments if you love it!
Easy Ham & Cheese Sliders
For The Honey Mustard
- 1 cup mayonaise
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/8 cup mustard
For The Poppy Seed Dressing
- 2 tbsp poppy seeds
- 3 tbsp honey mustard sauce
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 24 Hawaiian rolls
- 24 slices ham
- 24 slices Swiss cheese
- honey mustard sauce from above
For The Honey Mustard Sauce
- In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, honey and mustard.
- Set aside.
For The Poppy Seed Dressing:
- In a glass measuring cup, whisk together the melted butter, poppy seeds, honey mustard and Worcestershire.
- Set aside.
- Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Slice open the rolls and spread honey mustard sauce on the bottom and mayonnaise on the top.
- Place a slice of ham and cheese on each roll and place the top on each sandwich.
- Place all of the sandwiches on a cookie sheet or cake pan.
- Drizzle each sandwich with the poppy seed dressing until you've used a little more than half of the dressing and each sandwich is covered.
- Tightly wrap the pan with tin foil and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
- Remove the pan from the oven and take off the foil.
- Drizzle with a little more sauce (you may need to melt it again if the butter solidified) and serve immediately.
Side note: I added Everything but the Leftovers Seasoning Blend from Trader Joe’s IN PLACE OF the poppy seeds. Poppy seeds aren’t generally my favorite, so I sprinkled this generously all over the top before I placed it in the over to bake. It was BEYOND fantastic! Stock up on this seasoning if you haven’t already! So good!
