Our version of this classic appetizer features delicious, melty ham and Swiss cheese for maximum flavor, all topped off with everything bagel seasoning for added flair! Perfect for any gathering!
These delicious sandwiches are super straightforward to make and can be completed ahead of time. Just place assembled sliders in a baking dish, brush with butter mixture, and bake until hot, toasty and full of melty cheese! Feel free to experiment with different kinds of meat like turkey or pepper jack, as well as different cheese options (Swiss is recommended!). Additionally, this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to feed an audience!
Swiss cheese is an irresistibly gooey, mildly sweet and buttery cheese with irregular holes ranging in size from pea-size to walnut-size. Ideal as an ingredient in various recipes or cut into chunks to serve on sandwiches and other foods, Swiss is versatile cheese with endless uses!
This recipe uses classic deli ham and smooth, melty Swiss cheese to craft small sliders that are great for serving at casual gatherings. A tangy butter sauce adds additional bold flavor that goes great with salty deli meat and soft bread.
King’s Hawaiian Original Sweet Rolls make this recipe truly delectable with their soft texture and sweet notes that complement the flavors of ham and cheese perfectly. However, you could easily adapt this to suit any type of sandwich roll or deli meat you prefer; and experiment with other kinds of cheese such as provolone or white cheddar for additional variety!
Everything Bagel Seasoning
Everything bagel seasoning has quickly become one of the hottest food trends, and for good reason. A combination of seasonings can add crunch, crunch, nuttiness, and salty sweetness to almost anything, with common pantry items and food processor making the job easy or purchasing something like the Everything But The Bagel brand from Trader Joe’s as a premade solution.
These delicious ham delights are simple to prepare and are sure to be a hit at any gathering. Children especially will love enjoying them as a special meal or snack; and you can make them ahead of time and freeze for later enjoyment!
To create these delectable ham treats, cut rolls horizontally using a long serrated knife. Spread mustard on each cut side before layering sliced ham and cheese slices atop. Brush on additional melted butter as needed before finishing them off with everything bagel seasoning before baking for 8 to 10 minutes before enjoying warm!
Hawaiian Dinner Rolls
Hawaiian dinner rolls have quickly become a go-to in my house. They’re light and fluffy with subtle sweetness that pairs beautifully with any meal, while this recipe takes it up a notch from Gramma’s version which featured Pillsbury Pop’n Whatever with cheese sandwiched between each half, finished off with an irresistibly butter sauce for extra decadence.
This variation on the classic dish adds extra flavorings to both the dough and final rolls before baking, for an enhanced experience. To enhance its fragrance, sprinkle some finely chopped rosemary and thyme to dry ingredients while kneading or add minced garlic as you go, before topping finished rolls off with grated coconut for a savory take on this timeless recipe.
To prevent overbaking, be sure to enclose your rolls with lightly greased plastic wrap after their initial rise and let them continue rising for about one more hour before baking them. Before placing in the oven, brush them with a mixture of water and reserved egg white to create a shiny crust on top.
