Slide, Slide, Slippety Slide

I hope the tune to Coolio's 1994 hit...Fantastic runnin' through your head right about now. You can thank me for that later ;) Speaking of slide, these ham & cheese sliders that are blowin' up the Pinterest boards are absolutely to die for...a fantastic voyage of flavors if you will.  If y'all can't tell by now, Pinterest is the source of pretty much ALL my recipes these days. I've had these little sliders pinned for a while & couldn't wait to make them. Our little Ugly Sweater Party seemed like the perfect occasion!!! Now, I have to admit that I'm not much of a ham & cheese kinda gal. I prefer turkey or roast beef {especially if I'm dining at Subway}. These little sandwiches were nothing short of amazing, ham and all. If you're on the fence, jump off and don't wait a second longer to make these. They were SO dang easy, too!!!! Easy & tasty all wrapped into one...that's MY kind of recipe!!!!



24 white dinner rolls {I used Sara Lee, in the bread section}

24 slices of ham {I used Boar's Head, cut at the deli}

24 slices of swiss cheese {I used Boar's Head, cut at the deli}

1/3 cup mayo

1/3 cup Miracle Whip

{I definitely think the quality of the ham & cheese will affect the tastiness of this particular recipe, so you *might* want to be a little picky!}

Poppyseed Sauce

1 tbsp. poppyseeds

1&1/2 tbsp. yellow mustard

1 stick butter {half cup}, melted

1 tbsp. minced onion

1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce


First things first. You'll wanna go ahead and slice your dinner rolls in half {crosswise}. This will make things go SO much faster! Mix up the mayo and Miracle whip and spread a little on both the top and bottom of each roll. Now place one slice of cheese and one slice of ham on the bottom of each roll and put the top of the roll on to close 'er up.

Don't forget to make the poppyseed sauce!!! And don't skip on this. This is what makes the slider!!! Whisk together, poppyseeds, mustard, melted butter, minced onion, and worcestershire in a small bowl. You'll want to make sure you place the sliders on a baking sheet with edges and place them real close together all snug as a bug. Take the poppyseed sauce and pour it evenly over all the sliders once they're arranged on the baking sheet nice and tight. Let this sauce sit for about 10 minutes {ish} to give the butter a chance to set.

Cover the sliders with foil and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes {or until cheese is melted}. Uncover and bake for an additional 2-5 minutes or until tops are golden and crispy.


Let me just tell y'all that these are little bite sized pieces of heaven. I think that's saying a lot considering ham & cheese isn't one of my favorite combos. These got RAVE reviews all the way around. This recipe is a definite keeper!! It's the PERFECT party food, but they'd definitely be amazing for lunch or dinner, too. In my opinion, they're best served warm, but they taste pretty dang good when they've had a chance to cool off, too. They even heat up pretty dang well the next day! I made about 3 dozen for our party and we only had a handful leftover at the end of the night. Don't worry, though. I scarfed those down before heading to bed {which might explain my random dreams that night}. With Christmas parties/New Year's/& the Superbowl right around the corner, you'll definitely want to keep this recipe in mind!!!!  Just make sure to have the wet wipes nearby...these little sliders are a little messy!!



  1. LOVE THESE! I make similar ones but they do NOT have poppy seeds - I'm so adding poppy seeds next time. Don't they just make it more fancy?! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  2. I make these quite a bit as well. However, on the recipe I follow you don't do the mayo thingy and you put the poppy seed sauce inside the bun on both sides. Makes it less messy. I will have to try this one though. Soooo good!!!


  3. These look SOOO good!! definitely gonna try em soon!

  4. I just read thru your last like 5 recipes purely for entertainment, but now my stomach is growling!!! I love the use of the word dang, I laughed hard a lot of times! Dangit I love you, and cant wait to try some of these! Ok all of these!!

  5. Made these Christmas night and they were a HIT! Delicious!! Thought they were even tastier the next night cold!

  6. I made these for our family's Christmas party & everyone LOVED them (and even requested them for next year's party)! Thank you so much for sharing!

  7. 4 years later this post and these still rock! Thank you!!!!!
