Ham and Cheese Sliders make for an easy appetizer, snack, lunch, or even dinner! I’ve made these for small gatherings (can easily double the recipe) with family and friends and also for game days, and everyone RAVES about them!

You guys, I’m like an appetizer/game day food junkie. I can’t help it. I blame it on my husband. Since the beginning of time he’s always been one who loves gameday finger foods (smart man). We love to enjoy sausage dip, pepperoni pizza dip, maple bacon popcorn, and caramelized onion dip on a regular basis.

Yes, I totally make game day foods NOT on a game day. And you can too 🙂

How to make Ham and Cheese Sliders

Step 1: Make the Honey Mustard

In a small bowl whisk the mayo, mustard, and honey.

A bowl of homemade honey mustard mayo.

Step 2: Make the Poppy Seed Dressing

In a glass measuring cup, melt the butter. Add the poppy seeds, Worcestershire sauce, and 2 tablespoons of the honey mustard you just made. Whisk to combine, set aside.

Step 3: Assemble the Hawaiian ham and cheese sliders

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Cut the rolls in half (I like to use the Hawaiian style rolls for this recipe, however, any kind of roll or slider type roll will work perfectly!!).

On one side of the roll spread mayo. On the opposing side spread the honey mustard.

Add a slice (or 2) of ham, and a slice of cheese.

Place the top slice of roll on top, to create a sandwich. Place in a 13×9 inch baking dish.

Continue to do this with each roll.

Step 4: Bake the sliders

Drizzle half the poppy seed dressing over the rolls. Cover the roll with tin foil then place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melty.

Remove from the oven, take off the foil, and drizzle the remaining sauce over the rolls.

Serve immediately.
