Baked Ham & Swiss Sliders

One of my favorite things to do with leftover ham (with the exception of my ham & bean soup) is to make these tasty little baked ham & swiss sliders. After baking a ham, it’s one of the things my family looks forward to me making with the leftovers.  

However, you don’t have to have leftover ham in order to make them.  
 
We crave these a ton & they’re super easy to whip up, so when we don’t have any leftover ham I buy some sliced ham in the deli to use instead.  Either way, it’s delicious – and it’s definitely a must try, and destined to end up in your dinner rotation.

Let’s get started.
 
Mince up your onions & saute them in the melted butter in a hot skillet for 5 minutes. Stir in the dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, & poppy seeds. Cook until the onions are soft & translucent.

Cut your Hawaiian sweet rolls in half – as in the entire package all at once. Place the roll bottoms in the bottom of a 9×13 casserole dish & spread it with 3/4 of the onion mixture.

Top with your ham…

And then your swiss….

Place on the top half of your buns.

Spread the remaining onion mixture on top of the rolls.  

Cover with aluminum foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Remove it from the oven, and cut down the lines to make your individual sliders.
