I know what you’re thinking. “It’s just ham and cheese on a small bun, right?” Wrong. It goes without saying that ham and melted cheese are a delicious combination to begin with, but this particular version has a secret ingredient; A poppy-seed sauce that can turn any second-string slider into an all-star. With the Superbowl in the near future, they are a perfect addition to your snacking line-up. What makes them even better is the fact that you can assemble them the night before to ensure that you spend less time in the kitchen and more time cheering on your favorite team.
Ham and Cheese Sliders with a Poppy-Seed Sauce
2 Packages of Slider buns (24 buns) (you can find them fairly easy in the bread aisle of your local grocery store)
24 slices of ham (thick sliced or to your liking)
24 small pieces of Swiss cheese
1/3 cup of Mayonnaise
1/3 cup of Miracle Whip
3/4 Tablespoon of Poppy-seeds
1 Tablespoon of Mustard (we use Dijon)
1/4 cup of salted butter, melted
1/2 Tablespoon of minced onion
1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire Sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl mix the mayo and the miracle whip together.
In a separate bowl whisk together all of the sauce ingredients.
Spread Mayo mixture evenly on the center of each slider buns. Place a piece of ham and cheese on each, close bun, and place each sandwich in a large baking dish.
Brush the sauce generously and evenly on the outside of each slider and let sit for 5-10 minutes or until the butter starts to set. Cover with foil
and bake for 10-13 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Uncover and bake for 2 minutes or until the tops of the sandwiches are slightly browned. Enjoy right away!
