But boy these were so tasty, and that onion topping?
 I could eat just that on the bun.
 So good, and be generous when making the topping--don't skimp! ham & cheese sliders 5 12-6-2008 10-40-42 PM 1946x1376

So much fun to make, extremely tasty too. Perfect for a football party.
You can make massive quantities with minimal effort.
I used those mini dinner potato rolls from Martins. Almost every grocery store has them.

ham & cheese sliders
print recipe

2 TB dried minced onions
1 TB Dijon mustard (I used 2 TB)
2 TB poppy seeds
I used a couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce
1 stick melted butter
1 dozen mini dinner rolls (I used 2 doz. Martin's Famous Dinner Potato Rolls)
1/2 pound ham (I used sweet capicola)
1/2 pound thinly sliced Swiss cheese (I used baby swiss)

Preheat oven to 325°. In a small mixing bowl mix onion, mustard, poppy seeds, Worcestershire sauce, and melted butter. Leaving the dinner rolls intact, slice them open so that you have one solid top and bottom. Don’t slice each one open, but rather as a whole. Place the bottom half on a baking sheet or in a 9x13 inch baking pan. Line the bottom half of the rolls with cheese slices and ham. Return the top part of the rolls and drizzle the butter mixture evenly over top. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Now use a sharp knife to separate the sandwiches.

cook notes:
I baked for 15 minutes with foil then about 7 with foil off as I wanted the tops to get a bit of crunch. These can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, may require 5 more minutes of baking. Also can be prepared ahead and frozen. Defrost in refrigerator overnight and bake as directed. Oh these were so fun to make and eat. You will be the hit of the party if you make these. Next time I make these I'm going to try it with cheeseburgers. Don't you think little BLT's would be good too? Or little buffalo chicken sliders?

  27. if you make the buffalo chicken sliders...let me know, I'll be right over!!

  28. God I still think about these...they were soo good and I brought some into work. Well its kind of scary when you have something good tasting and you're surrounded by people eating diet microwave popcorn without salt or imitation butter, who are drinking water ( you know the kind..the ones who spice up their day, by putting two cubes of ice in the glass)..still I remember these sliders fondly!!
