Ham and Cheese Sliders

These little sandwiches are baked and glazed with a wonderful sweet poppy seed sauce. They can be prepared ahead, refrigerated, and baked just before serving for a super easy dinner or a fast party tray. My sister and I made these for a crowd over the weekend, and they were a big hit.

Ham and Cheese Sliders

1 pound thinly sliced ham
1/2 pound sliced baby swiss cheese
18 Hawaiian sweet rolls

1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon poppy seeds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice rolls, prepare sandwiches on rolls with a layer each of ham and swiss cheese as desired. Place sandwiches in a 9 x 13-inch pan.

To prepare the sauce: In a medium saucepan, combine butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and poppy seeds. Bring just to a boil over medium heat. Pour sauce OVER TOP of sandwiches, cover with foil and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for about two more minutes.

Slice the rolls, then layer with ham and cheese.

Place the sandwiches in a 9 x 13-inch pan.

Prepare the sauce and pour over the top of the sandwiches.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes covered with foil, then about 2 minutes after removing the foil.
