Ham and Swiss Sliders

If you are into Pinterest
you have probably seen these all over the
place and they are being repinned
for a good reason - these are fabulous
and so simple to make.

We were at Lake Powell and my daughter
Amanda and her new husband Casey
chose to make these.
Who would think a simple ham and cheese
sandwich could be taken to such new heights
by a mustard and poppy seed glaze, but it really
makes an amazing sandwich
perfect for a meal or a luncheon
or even a party.

Ham and Swiss Sliders
(I adapted my recipe from Annie's Eats)

24 small buns - we used King's Hawaiian Rolls
24 - 24 slices ham - we used Black Forest Ham
12 slices 2wiss cheese - we used baby Swiss
mayonaise - to spread on buns

1 1/2 T. poppy seeds
1 1/2 T. yellow mustard
1/2 C. butter, melted
1 T. grated onion
1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray Pam in the bottom of 2 9x13 inch pans or a 13x18 inch rimmed baking sheet.  

Split the buns in half and spread one side with mayonaise.  Cut the Swiss
cheese in half and lay on the slider.  Fold 1-2 pieces of ham and lay it
on the Swiss cheese.  Place the sliders close together in your pan.  

Mix the glaze ingredients together and brush onto the tops
of the buns.  Let some of the sauce run down the sides.
Cover with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes or until
the cheese is melted.

These are small and go quickly.  
Super, super yummy.  You can even make them 
up a day ahead and bake them that day.

Expect people to eat at least two. 

Ok, so if you are like me and you have
seen them everywhere but haven't
made these yet, give them a try.  Any small roll
will do, but King's Hawaiian adds such a nice


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
