What are Ham and Cheese Sliders?

Ham and Cheese sliders are made with King’s Hawaiian Rolls, deli ham and cheese. You then add few simple ingredients together to make delicious sauce that you pour on top of the sandwiches once assembled. You then bake the rolls until they become melty and gooey.

Swiss cheese is typically used for these baked sandwiches but we switched it up and  tried White Cheddar Cheese which was equally delicious!

These sliders are incredibly easy to put together. After taking the rolls out of the package you will simply slice them in half, keeping the rolls together.

Layer your ham and cheese on the bottom half of the rolls and then placing the tops back on. Go on to brush the sweet and savory glaze, adding a sprinkle of poppy seed on top.
