Easy Ham Sliders

Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 12 mins | Servings: 12-24 servings | Difficulty: Easy


  • Recipe:
  • 24 Good Dinner Rolls (I used Costco rolls)
  • 24 Slices of Ham
  • 24 Slices Provalone Cheese (Cut to fit rolls)
  • 1/3 C. Mayonnaise
  • Sauce:
  • 1 Stick of Butter, Melted
  • 1 tsp. Yellow Mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp. Poppy Seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp. Minced Onions
  • 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce


Spread thin layer of mayonnaise onto both sides of rolls, then lay ham and then cheese on the roll. Repeat for all 24 rolls and lay closely together on a heavy cookie sheet.
Mix ingredients together and pour evenly over all rolls. (I like to spread a little sauce inside the sliders before I pour over the top). Cover cookie sheet with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove foil and bake an additional 2-5 minutes. To make with crispy tops cook without covering. Enjoy!
