Ham and Cheese Sliders

This is truly one of my all time favorite recipes. It's amazing how something so simple can be so delicious. I am actually surprised it took me this long to post this recipe. On our iPad I have lots of lists.

A list of recipes to share (there's probably like 30-40 recipes on that list currently).

A list of recipes I am developing that are a total work in progress, but I am loving every minute of the recipe development process.

A list of original recipe ideas. Please don't steal my iPad.

A list of recipes to try in general, plus lists of recipes to try in the spring, the summer, the fall, the winter--- seasonal stuff.

I'm a little bit of a food fanatic, in case you haven't noticed. Basically, I am trying to mostly post recipes from that first list of recipes to share while I fine tune some of my own. These sliders were on the top of that list.

The original recipe makes 24 sliders but we often make fewer (by halving or quartering the recipe) and eat them as a main course rather than an appetizer. The original recipe also calls for swiss cheese. But as much as I love swiss cheese it makes my throat itch, so we just use cheddar. I have also used provolone and pepper jack.

These are savory and slightly sweet. The freaking butter poppy seed mustard sauce is ahhhh-mazeee-ing, and it reminds me of {Snyder's of Hanover} mustard pretzels. If you do bring them to a party I can promise that they will be a major crowd pleaser--- with the kids and the adults. Go ahead and give them a try.

Ham (and Turkey) and Cheese Sliders

Recipe Source: adapted [ever so slightly] from Chef In Training, The Girl Who Ate Everything, and The Recipe Club

12 King's Hawaiian Original Sweet Rolls *these are what give the sliders a hint of sweetness
2 1/2 tablespoons miracle whip
2 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
12 thin slices of ham
12 thin slices of turkey *You could try these with other deli meat, like pastrami or roast beef
1 cup grated cheese *swiss, cheddar, provolone, pepper jack, monterey jack, havarti... the options are endless
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the rolls in half horizontally. Stir the mayo and miracle whip together. Spread the top and bottom of each roll with the mayo mixture. Put the bottoms of the rolls mayo side up in a greased 9x13 pan. Stack a slice of ham, a slice of turkey, and about a tablespoon of grated cheese (in that order) on each bottom bun. Put the tops mayo side down on each slider.

In a small bowl stir the butter, mustard, poppy seeds, onion powder, and worcestershire sauce together. Brush over the tops of the rolls, and use all of it! Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 5-8 minutes or until the cheese is really melty and the tops of the rolls are browned and little bit crusty, but not too crusty.
