Ham and Cheese Sliders

Y’all … we had THE BEST dinner the other night.  Every once in a while I do a ‘help-me!’ shout-out on Facebook asking my friends for all their favorite dinner recipes.  Have y’all ever done this? It’s awesome.  I always come out on top with great recipes!!

I’ve always loved hot ham and cheese sandwiches, ever since I ate a remarkable one my freshman year in college at Texas Tech University at a restaurant on University drive called Zookini’s.  I loved that place!  My friend got this recipe from a blog called ‘The Girl Who Ate Everything’.  (That blog name alone made me want to browse all her recipes!)  These turned out spectacular!  We ate them so fast … I didn’t even have time to make a picture of them, but there’s a lovely one on the website :).   Here’s the recipe:

Ham and Cheese Sliders (Taken from The Girl Who Ate Everything website)
Source: adapted slightly from The Recipe Club
24 good white dinner rolls
24 pieces good honey ham
24 small slices Swiss cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup miracle whip

Poppy seed sauce
1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
1 1/2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and miracle whip. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet. Place very close together.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy-seed sauce ingredients. Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. You do not have to use all of the sauce! Just use enough to cover the tops. Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes or until tops are slightly brown and crispy. Serve warm.

Note: Sandwiches can be assembled a day ahead and kept in the fridge ready to bake.

**Holly’s Recipe Notes: I used Hawaiian Rolls for the bread, Carving Board Ham and Carving Board Turkey for the meat and Monterrey Jack Cheese instead of Swiss.**
