How do you use leftover ham? I am not a leftover fan, but I love these Ham and Cheese Sliders or as we like to call them Hammy Sammies.
The beauty is you don’t need to have leftover ham to make them! Wonderful for any occasion; whether bringing to a potluck, for a family in need, Superbowl Party, holiday appetizer, Easter brunch, Christmas afternoon or quite possibly simply for dinner!
PLAN AHEAD! These rolls need to “marinate” in the sauce 4 hours or more, may even hang out in the refrigerator overnight until ready to bake.
Start by opening yourself a package of those yummy King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls. Using a serrated bread knife, slice the entire pack of rolls in half.
Next start the process for what separates the from the “Hawaiian Hammy Sammy” from the plain ol’ ham and cheese. Place your butter into a small saucepan over low heat, once melted add your Worcestershire sauce…
…your mustard, you can use regular yellow mustard or dijon, I like it both ways. This little measuring cup is one of my favorite kitchen tools!
Then plunk the the packed brown sugar into the saucepan…
Bring to a simmer for a few seconds until it thickens slightly, maybe 40-60 seconds or so, stirring while it bubbles.
Place the ham on top of of the rolls…
Then the cheese, you can use any type, but ham and swiss cheese are the bomb.
TIP: The thinner the cheese slices the more easily it will melt.
Place the tops back on, again separating into 4 columns, matching tops. Drizzle the sauce evenly over the tops of the rolls, making sure it oozes over the sides and onto the bottom of the pan.
Gently lift up the edges of the columns and tilt your pan slightly to allow the sauce to get under the rolls; the crusty, sweet goodness is too good to skip this step!
Cover tightly with foil that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.
Place in refrigerator for east least 4 hours, overnight is fine too.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°. Place ham and cheese sliders in oven keeping covered first 6 minutes, then uncover for balance of baking (this allows the stuck on sweet butter sauce to release from the foil back on to the rolls). Bake until cheese melted, sauce is bubbly and tops are slightly crispy.
Let the sliders cool just slightly and serve. These are fabulous warm or room temp. Try them with turkey and cheddar, or sliced chicken with mozzarella cheese, turkey and provolone, the combinations are endless. Okay maybe not…the ham and swiss are our favorites though!
These Hammy Sammies are extremely freezer friendly, make up a bunch ahead of time and pop in the freezer. If frozen cook in a 50° cooler oven for 15-20 minutes longer. Recommended to thaw in fridge before baking, bake as directed.
