Ham and Swiss Sliders

Ham and Swiss Sliders Sandwiches

If you’ve never made these simple Ham and Swiss Sliders before, oh my heavens you need to try them out very soon.  I promise, they’re that good, and they’d be perfect on game day! First of all, I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to mess up a King’s Hawaiian Roll (you can use a plain ole’ bakery roll, but there’s something just perfect about those Sweet Rolls that makes everything taste divine . . . ), and secondly ~ well ~ butter, onion, honey ham and Swiss . . .need I say more?


You won’t believe my not-so-penny-pinched story though about these sliders. I made them to take to a party and sent my sweet-amazing-wonderful husband to pick up the ingredients (as of course I was running way behind.) I didn’t give him very precise amounts of just what we needed though ~ I assumed enough ham and cheese for 24 sliders was all the information necessary?


He headed to Publix, told the sweet bakery lady that he needed enough supplies for 24 sandwiches, and came home with two pounds of ham, a full pound of Swiss cheese, and a $30 grocery bill. Eek!  Needless to say, we’ll be eating ham and Swiss for the next few weeks. (So much for my penny-pinchin’ husband ~ I learned my lesson!)  You should have plenty with about 3/4 pound of ham and at the very most 1/3 pound of Swiss ~ hopefully those will help you pinch those pennies this week.  (And by the way, I noticed Sam’s Club had the giant bags of Hawaiian’s Rolls for $3.88 yesterday ~ that’s the best price I’ve seen!)

  1. Hey Laurie,
    If you need a way to use up all that ham and swiss try Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole—I found it on the Tasty Kitchen site. Delicious!

  2. Stephaniedem says:

    Hi!! I am a big fan of real Mayo, would all mayo work for these?


  3. Joyce Yoder says:

    A must try!! I made these for our family Christmas and they quickly disappeared!! YUMMMMMMM! Can’t just eat one-good thing they are little!!!

  4. Just in case….find that the ham freezes very well…dice up first to include in omelets or quiche.
