Extra Tips for making ham and cheese sliders:
- You can use spiral ham, deli-sliced ham, or essentially any other deli meat for this idea. If Swiss cheese isn’t a family favorite, consider using sliced provolone or muenster cheese instead!
- Two packages of King’s Hawaiian rolls fit perfectly on a half-sheet baking pan.
- For easy cleanup, consider prepping your sheet pan with foil or parchment paper before starting.
- Prep ahead idea: Compile these a day before, and then stick them in the oven when you’re ready to bake and eat.

Cheesy-filled sliders with ham on King's Hawaiian rolls make for the perfect party snack or appetizers. Makes 24 small sliders.
- 1 pound thinly sliced deli ham, or spiral cut ham
- 12 slices or 1 pound sliced Swiss cheese
- 24 soft mini dinner rolls, such as King's 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
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan or line with nonstick foil or parchment paper.
Cut the rolls in half horizontally creating a top and bottom layer for sandwiches. I didn’t even separate the rolls before cutting – I just cut the whole pack in half.
Layer the ham first and then the cheese. Put the top of the rolls back on.
Whisk butter, mustard, poppy seeds, minced onion, 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.

This is a must-make recipe idea that won’t disappoint!
I have served these with a few different meat and cheese combos, and they never last long! I love how they come out kinda buttery crisp around the edges, yet soft and cheesy in the middle. My kids love these mini sandwiches, and I love how easy they are to make. Enjoy!
Have any leftover ham or prime rib? Party sliders are a great option.
After a family party, I was looking for an easy way to use leftovers from a Honey Baked ham and roasted prime rib. I made a batch of Honey Baked ham and cheese sandwiches following this recipe, and then also made a batch with thinly sliced prime rib and provolone cheese. They were a big hit and so yummy!
