Ham and Cheese Sliders 

These baked ham and cheese sliders and layered with ham, melted cheese, on a Hawaiian sweet roll, and basted with a flavorful, buttery sauce.

This is a classic recipe that everyone needs to have in their kitchen. I found this recipe in one of my Mom’s church cookbooks and it is one of my go-to recipes when I am feeding a crowd (or just my family). It is such an easy way to make a lot of baked ham and cheese sandwiches at once! 

Since my kids are home for the summer, I am making more lunches than dinners these days. These Baked Ham and Swiss Sliders are what they asked for all of the time. The flavor is out-of-this-world and the salty ham and creamy melted cheese paired with the buttery sauce and you have a winning combination!

The ham and cheese sliders are made on Hawaiian sweet rolls and they are the absolute best! They are the perfect party-size and remain perfectly soft while baked. The buttery sauce drips down to the base of the rolls while baking and gives the bottoms the most buttery goodness. The Hawaiian rolls still stay soft yet hold up to the mustard poppyseed sauce. 

The sauce is made with melted butter, dijon mustard, dried onions, poppy seeds, and Worcestershire sauce. It is ridiculously amazing!

How to make the Best Baked Ham and Cheese Sliders:

  1. Line a 9 x 9 or 9 x 13 baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. This is an important step because the cheese will melt and can stick to the foil. 
  2. I suggest using Hawaiian sweet rolls. Use a long serrated knife to slice the rolls in half, lengthwise, so you have a slab of rolls. Don’t pull the rolls apart or individually slice them because you want the rolls to be completely connected. Place the bottom side of the rolls in the pan.
  3. Layer half of the ham over the rolls. Layer with the cheese and repeat. You can use any type of cheese you want — Swiss, Cheddar, Pepper Jack, etc.
  4. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Add the dijon mustard (you can substitute regular mustard), poppy seeds, dried onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. 
  5. Brush the butter mixture all over the rolls. Evenly spread it over the top and allow some of the butter mixture to drip to the base of the rolls. 
  6. Cover with aluminum foil and bake covered for about 20-25 minutes until the cheese is melted. It may take slightly longer depending on thickness of cheese and ham. Uncover the foil and bake for 3 to 5 minutes longer. 
  7. Serve hot!

  1. 5 stars
    This was tasty and everyone in my family enjoyed it (kids 8, 5, 3 included). I would serve with a veggie soup or salad.

  2. These sliders were so good!! I made them for July 4th and my family says they are so delicious! Thank you for all of the great recipes… we are always so pleased with each one!!

  3. These were tasty and easy to make. My kids even liked them. The bottoms were a bit overcooked, but we actually like the crispier bottom.

    I didn’t have the onion or poppy seeds, so I basically subbed a tablespoon of everything bagel seasoning. I also added about a tablespoon of honey to sweeten up the dressing a tiny bit.

    Very good! Will save the recipe.

    1. I love this Blair! So glad that it all worked out and that you liked the recipe. Thanks for trying it out!

  4. Melissa … when I made these ham & cheese sliders on Hawaiian rolls they were splendid! However, I wished the sauce could have oozed down on the side of every sandwich, instead of just the outside ones. Have you ever tried cutting them apart before baking, in order to obtain that extra sauce on each, or is it just too messy?

    I use many of your recipes. It’s always the place I search first. I’m So grateful for the service you render to all of us!

    I knew Your grandparents well, over in the Arcadia district. My parents were friends of theirs, Leo and Leatha Christensen. Your Mom would know my younger siblings…Beverly Taysom, Clynn Christensen, & Lori Emig

    Again, thanks so very mch!!.

    1. Hi Janet! So great to hear from you. I love your family! We live in the same area as Bev and Clynn and they are some of the best people I know. I adore their kids as well. Such a fun connection. I will tell my parents of the Arcadia connection. That’s so wonderful! As far as the sandwiches go, that’s actually a great idea. I think you can cut them…the cheese may melt down the sides but that would be yummy. If you try it, let me know how it turns out. Thank you for your kind message! — Melissa
