Ham and Cheese Sliders on Hawaiian Rolls

Who posts sandwiches this close to Christmas?

This girl.


Because I know we're going to be racing from event to event the next week or two and more times than not, bringing a dish with us to share. Or, we're all simply too exhausted to cook a real meal but totally fine with throwing some easy sandwiches in the oven.

And one can only make so many Gingerbread Oreo Truffles, you know?

{eating them is a different story!}

These sandwiches have gone around the blog world (and Pinterest) probably three times already but I'm always late to the party. Y'all, they are darn good. And if I were at a party, and these were sitting on the food table, I'd hover that table like nobody's business the entire night hoping no one noticed that I had downed half the dish. The butter/mustard/sugar sauce seeps into the bread and kicks up an ordinary slider into something so, so much better.

We had these for dinner one night and loved them but they'd especially be good for a crowd since they are inexpensive, easy, and transport well.

You could switch out the meat and cheese to your preference as well! 

Ham & Cheese Sliders on Hawaiian Rolls
12 Hawaiian sweet bread dinner rolls, split in half
1/2 lb thinly sliced deli ham
1/2 lb thinly sliced Swiss cheese
1/2 cup butter
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp poppy seeds, optional

Preheat oven to 350. 

Evenly distribute the ham and cheese among the rolls and make sandwiches with each. Arrange them all in a 9x13 pan.

In a small saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, mustard, Worcestershire, and poppy seeds. Bring to a boil and then pour over top of the sandwiches. 

Bake for 15-20 minutes until the tops are browned and the cheese is melted. Serve warm.
