These hot ham and cheese sliders are made in the oven in under 20 minutes, and make for the perfect addition to your game day spread.
My recipe for ham and cheese sliders is something I’ve held on to for a few years now, and just kept forgetting to share. I’ve made them a variety of different ways, but this is the classic, best recipe.
We actually eat these for dinner pretty frequently, because I’m so busy and I know for sure the kids will eat them every time.
Flavor ideas and variations:
- I love to add sliced gherkin pickles to mine, but you can skip them! They’re delicious with and without.
- Use poppy seed hawaiin rolls.
- Add a brown sugar glaze for a sweeter flavor. Ham and cheese sliders with brown sugar are always a hit with kids.
- Eat them cold! They’re just as delicious as cold sandwiches for a beach trip or field trip.
- Use swiss cheese instead of provolone.
I love making these during the week when I want something yummy, and I’m trying to resist ordering food.
They’re honestly everything I love, wrapped up into one meal. Sweet, salty, a little spicy, and tangy too!
FAQs about ham and cheese sliders
How to Make Ham and Cheese Sliders
Just a few ingredients
Step 1: Slice the Hawaiin rolls in half and spread condiments
Slice the entire sheet of Hawaiin rolls in half, and spread the mayonnaise and dijon mustard on the bottom half.
You’ll want to go ahead and do all of this directly on the sheet pan.
Step 2: Layer the ham on the rolls
Layer the ham directly onto the bottom half of the Hawaiin rolls.
Step 3: Layer the provolone cheese
Swiss cheese is also super delicious on ham, but provolone has a milder flavor, making for a better option for my family with little kids.
Step 4: Slice and layer the gherkin pickles
Slice them however you like, or omit them entirely if you don’t care for pickles. My family loves them, and they make a great addition to these sliders, even when they’re served cold.
Step 5: Melt the butter and mix in Italian seasoning
In a bowl, microwave the butter and mix in the Italian seasoning for a perfect butter spread.
With a basting brush, gently brush the melted butter on the top of the rolls, pouring the excess over the middle.
Step 6: Bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes
Bake them for about 15 minutes, or until they’re done to your likeness. I have seen other people cover them with foil afterwards, but I have always skipped that step and never had any issues with drying out or being warm enough.
And voila! You have the perfect hot ham and cheese sliders, ready for game day, a fast and easy meal, or as a family snack!
