Ingredients

  • 1 package King’s Hawaiian original sweet rolls 12 rolls*
  • 12 ounces black forest ham
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese*
  • 5 Tablespoons melted salted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon dijon
  • 1 Tablespoon honey*
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire
  • 2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder or dried minced onion
  • fresh cracked black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Without pulling the rolls apart, slice the whole tray of rolls in half.
  • Line a baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Place the bottom half of the rolls in the prepared baking dish.
  • Layer the ham evenly across the bread.
  • Layer the cheese evenly across the ham.
  • Top with the other half of the bread.
  • Stir together the melted butter, dijon, honey, worcestershire, parmesan, parsley, garlic, and onion until well combined.
  • Spoon the butter on top of the rolls and spread.
  • Cover with foil and bake covered for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the foil.
  • Bake for another 5-10 minutes, or until the rolls begin to brown.

Notes

  • Hawaiian Rolls: Substitute any sweet brioche dinner rolls. 
  • Cheddar Cheese: Substitute for sliced swiss, provolone, or American cheese.
  • Honey: Substitute for brown sugar.
  • Carefully cut the Hawaiian rolls. You do not want the rolls to separate when you cut them. I recommend using a sharp serrated knife when cutting bread. 
  • Evenly place the fillings and toppings. You want to ensure every slider has a little bit of everything. 
  • Do not skip the butter. This is the best part of baked ham sliders. It adds so much flavor and makes these the best.
  • Keep them warm. If you are serving these at a party, cover them with foil so they stay warm. 
  • Reheat in the oven. This prevents the leftover sliders from becoming soggy.
