Ham and Cheese Sliders
It was a dark and stormy night, we were returning home from different activities and I needed a quick dinner. These ham and cheese sliders, paired with canned tomato soup, hit the spot. They are so yummy! (Well, my 8-year-old doesn't want the sauce touching HERS next time but her father and I like it!) I think the poppy seeds make them look so elegant they could be heavy hors d'oeuvres at a holiday party. I can see them appearing at a Super Bowl party too.
I found this idea on Pinterest and got the recipe from http://itsallinmyheadstefsblog.blogspot.com.
I made some changes, which I will put in parentheses.
HAM AND CHEESE SLIDERS
24 good white dinner rolls (I used King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls)
24 pieces good honey ham
24 small slices Swiss cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise AND 1/3 cup Miracle Whip
(Knowing the picky people in my family, I didn't add any dressing. They can add their own if they want.)
Poppy seed sauce (I took the previous blogger's advice and made half this recipe.)
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 1/2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 stick butter, melted
1 tablespoon minced onion
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and Miracle Whip. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll. (I skipped this.)
Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet. Place very close together.
In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients. Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes. Serve warm.
Sandwiches can be assembled a day ahead and kept in the fridge until ready to bake.
