Ham and Cheese Sliders

Football in the fall is a huge thing in our house. College ball on Saturday followed by Pro ball on Sunday – every weekend! It is also one of the most beautiful times of the year here on the Eastern Shore - so lots of family and friends filter in to enjoy the transitioning summer to fall weather and to cheer on their favorite teams. Our dining room table is filled with good things to snack on. One of those favorites are sliders. I can make these a day ahead and have them ready to pop in the oven. Ham and Cheese is a favorite but you can use any type of deli meat with your favorite condiments like Turkey and Gouda with Barbeque Sauce and Apricot Jam or Roast Beef and Cheddar with Mayo and Horseradish. Be creative!!


Ham and Cheese Sliders

One 12 count package Hawaiian Sweet rolls, sliced in half

¾ pound cooked deli ham, thinly sliced

¾ pound swiss cheese, thinly sliced

½ cup (one Stick) unsalted butter

½ cup Dijon Mustard

½ cup Apricot Jam

½ teaspoon Coarse Sea Salt

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter a 9x13 inch pan and set aside.

Using a serrated knife, slice the Hawaiian rolls in half so you have a slab of bottom rolls and a slab of top rolls. Don’t pull them apart. Place the bottom slab of rolls in the baking pan.

Brush the bottom slab with Dijon mustard. Evenly layer about half of the ham on top of the roll bottoms. Then evenly layer the cheese. Then layer the remaining ham and then the cheese. Spread the Apricot Jam on the cut side of the top slab of rolls. Place the top slab (jelly side down) on the ham and cheese layers. In a microwave safe dish, melt the butter and pour it evenly over the top of the sliders. (Some of the butter will pool at the base of the sliders. That’s OK!) Sprinkle the top with coarse sea salt. Cover with aluminum foil and allow the sliders to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before baking.

Bake covered for about 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Uncover and bake for another 3 to 5 minutes or until the tops are lightly brown.

Serve immediately.
