Ham and Cheese Sliders are savory baked ham sandwiches brushed with a tangy and buttery mustard poppy seed sauce. They’re so fast and easy to put together. Make these sliders and you’ll never want to go back to those plain (and boring) ham and cheese sandwiches again!

These sliders have been a family favorite for years. I’ve made them for a million different events, or at least it feels that way, and they never disappoint! You could name just about any sort of family party or gathering, and sure enough these ham and cheese sliders have been on the menu. It’s no surprise why, they are SO easy to whip up, taste incredible and make for the ultimate party food to feed a whole crowd!

Who doesn’t love layers of sliced ham and gooey cheese between two dinner rolls baked to perfection? And who wouldn’t love said gooey ham and cheese sandwich covered in the most buttery, tangy and flavor-filled poppy seed mustard sauce? Only a crazy person wouldn’t, that’s who. 😉

As if these babies aren’t great enough, they are also easily customizable! By that I mean you could easily switch up the meat, cheese or rolls that you use depending on your personal preference.

If you’re not really a fan of ham, go ahead and swap it out for turkey! Or if you do like ham, you can also try different flavors like honey-glazed, smoked or maple depending on the flavor profile you’re shooting for. Going along with the flavor, if you want something a little more sweet to go with the savory, you could use sweet Hawaiian rolls instead of normal dinner rolls. My family has actually tried them this way many times and they taste amazing!

Serve these at any picnic, party or social gathering and there won’t be one sandwich standing. Ham and Cheese Sliders also make for an easy weeknight dinner when you’re not in the mood to hear complaints from those picky eaters of yours.

  • 12 slices Swiss Cheese


  • 5 Tablespoons Butter

  • Place bottom halves of rolls in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Top each bottom with one slice of ham and one slice of Swiss cheese. Cover each roll with their top half.
  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave. Whisk in the mustard, minced onion and worcestershire sauce ingredients. Carefully pour the sauce evenly over all of the rolls. Sprinkle the tops of rolls with the poppyseeds. Let stand about 10 minutes or until butter has set slightly.
  • Cover the baking dish with foil and bake at 350 degrees F. for 12-15 minutes. Remove foil and place back into oven for 2 minutes or until cheese has completely melted. Serve warm.
  • FREEZER INSTRUCTIONS: Prepare sandwiches as directed above. Do not bake. Place sandwiches in a freezer-safe bag or container and freeze up to 2 months.

  2. One of my co-workers makes something like this for our work gatherings (well, let’s be honest – his wife makes them). They are SO good! And its been a while since I’ve had them so thanks for the reminder! I love your recipes, by the way!

  3. What a great reminder of these yummy little sandwiches! It’s been years since I’ve had them (or even thought about making them). I’m so gald I saw this post this morning. Definitely going to add these to my meal plans for next week. Thanks 🙂

  4. Yum. Those look fabulous. We make some in the summer on the grill, which reminds me I want to make them soon.
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Oh, these look fabulous! I’m definitely going to use these for my son’s high school grad party (a year away, but this will start my file!). And they’ll probably be tested a few times before that 🙂

  6. Pretty much one of my most favorite sandwiches. I’ve been making a version of these for years. They are so good. Thanks for posting this….I need to make them soon.

  7. Those look delicious and I’m sure my kiddos would love them too. Just wanted to let you know that I’ve bestowed the Versatile Blogger Award on you. Stop by my site to check it out. I’m at whatthedogate.blogspot.com.

  8. I made these last night and they were fabulous!! I used 6 “Lite” Hamburger Buns (watching my figure!) and they worked out perfectly. Delicious! I can’t wait to eat the leftover for lunch today! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Made these this week and they were a huge hit! Should have doubled the batch. I used Hawaiian mini sub rolls and it was awesome. I have one non-ham eater in the house so I made hers with turkey and she said it was delish!
