What are Ham and Cheese Sliders?
These easy Ham and Cheese Sliders are a great choice if you need an appetizer for game night or an easy weeknight dinner. Deli ham and provolone cheese slices are placed inside a sweet Hawaiian roll and a mixture of melted butter, brown sugar and seasonings are spooned on top before these tasty sliders are baked to crispy golden perfection.
- deli ham, thinly sliced
- provolone cheese slices
- Hawaiian slider rolls
- melted butter
- brown sugar
- Worcestershire sauce
- everything but the bagel seasoning
- garlic powder
- onion powder
First, preheat the oven to 350 and line a large baking sheet with foil. Pull apart the sliders and place the bottoms onto the foil.
Then spread mustard over the bottom part of the slider buns. Add two pieces of ham and 1 slice of cheese, folded to fit on each slider bun. Add the top of each bun and place sandwiches close together, raising the foil around the edges to create a basket of sorts.
Next, prepare the topping. In a bowl with the melted butter, whisk in the brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, bagel seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder. Brush over the tops of the slider rolls, letting the excess run between the sandwiches.
Cover with foil and bake for 10-12 minutes. Then remove the foil from the top and bake another 3-4 minutes until the tops start to get golden and crispy. Remove from the oven and let sit 5 minutes before pulling apart and serving.
- Replace mustard on the sandwiches with mayo if you prefer.
- Swap out everything bagel seasoning for its individual ingredients - poppy seeds, sesame seeds, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.
- For a spicy kick, add some cayenne to the butter mixture before brushing on the slider rolls.
- Change out your deli meat and cheese preference - turkey and cheddar, roast beef and provolone, turkey and swiss, ham and gouda...the options are endless
