Ham and Cheese Sliders are savory and delicious baked ham sandwiches with a mustard poppy seed dressing. These little sandwiches are always a hit at parties and get togethers!

These yummy sandwiches remind me of something my Grandma Jennings would have made for lunch on a Sunday after church. She was such a great cook. Thanksgiving dinners at her house were always elegant and amazing. She would set out all of her best china and silverware, and even use champagne glasses, but it was sparkling apple cider that filled the inside, never alcohol. I thought I was pretty cool drinking from those fancy glasses. To this day, every Thanksgiving I buy sparkling apple cider. It reminds me of her.

Okay, so where was I? Oh yes, these sliders. They are so delicious. Definitely not the boring everyday ham and cheese sandwich. The poppyseed sauce that you drench over the top is what really makes these things wonderful! The flavor is excellent. These would be perfect to make for a baby or bridal shower, a church or work party, etc. I guarantee you will be asked the recipe!

  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 🙂

    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!
