Baked Ham & Cheese Party Sliders

(adapted from AllRecipes.com)


1 pound thinly sliced deli ham
12 slices or 1 pound sliced Swiss cheese ( I used Muenster cheese)
24 soft mini dinner rolls like Hawaiian brand
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 and 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire
1 and 1/2 tablespoons poppy seeds
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon dried minced onion

How to make easy baked sandwiches

Directions: Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan or line with non stick foil. Cut mini sandwiches in half. I didn’t even separate the sandwiches before cutting – I just cut the whole pack in half. (Note: Two packs of Hawaiian brand 12 pack of mini rolls fit perfectly inside my pan). Layer meat first and then cheese and top with remaining ham. Put the top of the rolls back on. Whisk butter, mustard, poppy seeds, onion powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour mixture over the tops of sandwiches. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes until cheese is melted and slightly brown. To serve, cut with a spatula or knife. Serves 12 with 2 mini sandwiches each.

I served these at a recent holiday party and they were a huge hit and so yummy! They come out a little crispy around the edges and cheesy in the middle. Plus, I love how easy they are to compile – I may try these again with leftover ham from Christmas. Enjoy!

    I’ve made these before and they are AWESOME! They are nice to prep the night before, refrigerate overnight, and pop in the oven-great for Christmas day.

  2. A

    My family makes something like this for party’s. And they are delicious!

  3. Ellen H

    These are one of my favorites to make for parties! Just made 48 of them for a teen party this past Sunday and they were gone in minutes. My favorite cheese to use is Havarti!

  4. jeanette

    these look delicious…might have to give them a try

    This might be just what I needed. My son graduates in May and I don’t want to do hotdogs and brats. This would be easy to throw in the oven. Plus with over 100 people it should not be to expensive if I can find some ham on sale after Christmas and start stocking up on the cheese now and freeze them. I might even be able to find clearance buns after Christmas and freeze them as well.

      Great idea!

    I LOVE the Taste of Home version of these sandwiches…uses chive/onion cream cheese instead of mustard. They’re called Sassy Tailgate Sandwiches. So good!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Good idea!

    • justme

      I use the chive/onion cream cheese along with the mustard also and these are AMAZING! Never had anyone not like them. Thanks Lina and Merry Christmas!

    • Mary

      Hi Amanda,

      Do you still bake them with the cream cheese? Thanks!

  7. matt

    We make these and also try some different variations…this past weekend our Buffalo Chicken ones were a hit…we used sliced chicken…provolone, sprinkled with blue cheese crumbles, and the sauce has franks red hot and a dry blue cheese…it is a great snack all day kind of meal…

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Wow! Yum.

  8. christina

    love all the variations too!

  9. Christie

    These are scrumptious! 🙂

  10. Shelly

    I made these for a baby shower once and they were so popular! I think I’ll make them Christmas night with the leftover ham from Christmas lunch 🙂

  11. Jennifer N

    I am definitely making these on Saturday.

  12. Jennifer

    These are so awesome! They are easy and so yummy.

  13. Sarah

    Perfect idea for leftover Christmas ham and the “what to serve for New Years”!!! I love the idea of this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!

  14. Kim

    Wondering if the rolls stay soft when baking that long?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      They are super soft and gooey inside and a little crusty around the outside. So good.

      • Kim

        Thanks for responding. Need to try this one!

        • Kim

          I also noticed the recipe says dried minced onion and then the instructions say onion powder. Can you use either one?

          • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

            Thanks Kim – i actually did use a little onion powder bc i didnt have flakes and it was good. You could use either I’m sure. I will fix post.

            • Kim

              Tried today with onion powder and it was delicious! Thanks so much for the great recipe. I used Franz Hawaiian rolls because they were a bit cheaper.

  15. jennifer

    i want to lick that cheese ozing out the side!

  16. Vivian

    This sounds amazing since I’m addicted to those ham and cheese croissants from local doughnut shops!!

  17. Christie

    Thanks for posting this…kind of ironic I mentioned them to my mom the other day and said I wished I could find the recipe since I moved, I couldn’t find it. Collin to the rescue!You are so good you are a mind reader! 😀

  18. judy

    Also, I have used Boar’s Head honey glazed chicken deli meat!!!!Absolutely, the best.

  19. Rosario Diaz Gonzalez

    I’ve had these before and they are delicious. I had lost the recipe …thank you

  20. Swirlypop

    We call these “ham delights”. Slight variation in ingredients. They are delicious!

  21. meador1031

    I use hot dog buns. I cut then into 3 pieces. With all of that butter, they are still good and much cheaper to make.

  22. Kim

    These sound awesome! Will definitely try them over the holidays! Happy Holidays to all and thanks Collin for all you do!

  23. Heather J.

    Good with turkey and mozzarella too for non ham eaters.

  24. iamoved22

    These are SUPER yummy, and you can make your own variations by changing out the meats and cheeses. Next time I make them I want to try the hawaiian rolls. I always make two huge trays (it’s 4 packages of buns) some with turkey/ham/chicken and cheese and some with a vegetarian lunch meat and cheese. There are a few leftovers but they are always gone the next day. I do not use the poppy seeds.

  25. Sara

    We have family from out of town and I made these to eat with leftover ham today and it was a huge hit. Thanks for the idea!!!

  26. Heather C.

    Thanks so much for this idea!! I made these with Swiss Cheese, Hawaiian Rolls and added pineapple slices! They were a huge hit! Doing it again for Superbowl this weekend! :o) Im hungry already!!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Wow that sounds great!

  27. Sarah

    Awesome super bowl food! So glad we tried them.

  28. Kim

    Made these for my family for the Super Bowl today and they were AWESOME! We absolutely loved them! I used Muenster instead of Swiss as 2 don’t like the Swiss and they were ooey and gooey and just delish! Thanks for the recipe!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Wonderful news! Thanks

  29. mel

    Made this for a playoff party last weekend and they were a huge hit! Making a double batch today!! I think the ingredient list is incorrect though as it says to use 1 Tablespoon dried minced onion, yet in the directions, it says to mix with onion powder. Those are 2 totally different things, so I went with the powder. Just didn’t want someone else confused.

  30. Carrie bishop

    I don’t have any Dijon mustard, can I substitute anything else?

    • Denise

      I actually use honey mustard. My family is not a fan of dijon.

  31. Denise

    We make these every Christmas. Have also done these with turkey and cheese, sloppy joe and american cheese, and a friend is trying them with a reuben filling. Always a hit.
