Ham and Cheese Sliders are the ultimate snack for game day, lunch to feed a crowd or a favorite easy dinner recipe! Serve them alongside some buffalo wings with blue cheese dip and watch the whole crowd go wild! 

What’s better than the classic duo of ham and cheese? My daughter doesn’t have an answer to that, these are her favorite!

Ham and Cheese Sliders

These hot ham and cheese sliders are super easy to make – all you need to do is layer some dinner rolls with ham, cheddar or swiss cheese, and top them with a grainy mustard – Worcestershire glaze. Bake until they’re hot and the cheese is gooey melted and you’ve got the perfect bite!

You can use any type of ham (I usually choose black forest) or slice leftover baked ham and any type of dinner rolls. King Hawaiian are my favorite rolls for this recipe, they’re soft and sweet and make the best Hawaiian ham and cheese sliders.

Ham and swiss is a classic pairing but I’ve used so many different cheeses in this slider recipe, all with great success! White cheddar, provolone, and mozzarella are all delicious!

How To Make Ham and Cheese Sliders

To make these easy ham and cheese sliders:

  1. Slice the dinner rolls in half. If they are attached, don’t worry about separating them.
  2. Combine your topping ingredients and set aside.
  3. Place the bottom half of the rolls in a baking pan, top with ham and cheese.
  4. Brush the tops with the butter mixture and bake until golden.

The topping adds a ton of flavor and you can easily modify it to your likes! Make these ham and cheese sliders with garlic powder or Italian seasoning. You can make it without poppy seeds or dijon mustard if you prefer and add a pinch of horse radish or even brown sugar.

While many recipes have you lay the ham slices across the rolls, this can make them difficult to cut/serve. Just like with my Reuben Sandwich Sliders, place a slice of folded ham on each roll. Once baked you can simply pull a roll from the pan.

These sliders are perfect if you’re serving a crowd. You can make them all at once (and they can be made ahead of time)! Simply prepare as directed, cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Bake as directed.

  3. These were simple to put together and smelled great baking in the oven! I served at a potluck and it was a simple meal to prepare/serve.5 stars

  4. It was delicious and perfect 4 a party. The only thing I did was replace the poppy seeds and diced onions w/ Italian seasoning and added only half of the Worcestershire sauce and everybody loved it. Thanks for the wonderful dinner idea. Even the kids loved it.5 stars

  5. These Ham and Cheese Sliders were delicious and super easy to make! They freeze very well also, making them available for a quick last-minute lunch or snack. I froze them in packages of two and either removed them from the freezer and put them in the fridge two days prior to consuming or defrosted them in the microwave for 1-2 minutes on 50% power. Thanks for this super yummy recipe!5 stars

  6. You listed mustard as an ingredient on the recipe but I didn’t see it used in the video – is that optional? Thanks!

    1. Hmm, you’re right, it seems to be missing in the video. I would recommend adding it as it adds great flavor.

  7. I really enjoyed this recipe and my family did too! I used both ham and turkey lunch meats and to some of the adult sandwiches caramelized onions. Everybody loved them! Thank you!5 stars

  8. I got the 24 pack and made these for a family of 5. Cheap and quick! The glaze that goes on top is genius!! Everyone wanted more. Delicious5 stars

    1. Apologies for the confusion, the note should read: We use thinly sliced deli ham in this recipe (1 slice per sandwich). You can add more ham to make heartier sandwiches.

      I’ve updated the recipe.

  9. This was absolutely delicious! I made it for dinner tonight and my entire family loved it. The only change I made was using provolone. This will definitely become a staple.
