Baked Ham and Cheese Sliders

Mark’s friend Gail from Sonoma brought these to his going away party, and I thought I was going to die — they were THAT good! Seriously delicious, easy to make — these are your answer to holiday potlucks, quick meals, and the ultimate appetizer!


  • Two package of 12 Hawaiian sweet rolls, sliced in half (tops and bottoms)
  • 1 pound cooked Black Forest ham (any kind really), thinly sliced
  • 3/4 pound Swiss cheese, (I like Alpine lace)thinly sliced, but Havarti works really well too
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons Worcesteshire sauce
  • splash of white wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, or to taste


  • Slice top from rolls (do not separate individually) and place bottom in baking pan
  • Fold slice of ham to fit on each uncut roll
  • Layer with cheese
  • Replace top
  • Combine butter, poppy seeds, mustard, Worcestershire, wine, onion powder in a sauce pan
  • Drizzle over rolls.  Refrigerate until butter is firm or overnight
  • Cover with foil
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until cheese melts
  • Uncover and bake for 2 additional minutes to crisp the tops
  • Optional: you may slice rolls after baking for easier serving
  • Serve warm or cold.
