Ham & Cheese Sliders

Prep Time: 3 minutes // Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 package (12 rolls) sweet Hawaiian rolls
  • 1 lb cooked deli ham, thinly sliced
  • 16 slices Havarti cheese, sliced

Butter Sauce

  • 8 tbsp (1 stick, 120g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tbsp white sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp dried minced onion
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Using a sharp serrated bread knife, carefully slice the rolls in half horizontally. Place the bottom half of the rolls into a 9×13 baking dish.
  3. Layer cheese over the bottom of the rolls, then layer ham fully over the cheese. Repeat cheese and ham, ending with a last layer of cheese. Cover with the top half of the rolls. Optionally, you can cut the individual rolls now to separate the sliders and have the butter sauce penetrate between each sandwich better.
  4. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Whisk in the Worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard, garlic powder, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, minced onion, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add in parsley, if using.
  5. Slowly pour the butter sauce over the rolls, using a pastry brush or spoon to evenly spread the mixture over the tops. Let the sauce drip down the sides to the bottom, this is needed for crispiness,
  6. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake covered for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 5 minutes or until tops are slightly crispy and toasty.
  7. Serve the hot sliders immediately.
