What’s For Dinner? Hot Ham & Swiss Sliders

I’ve been hoping for a reason to make these since the weather got a little colder around here, and I’m so glad I finally found a night to try them out!  We’ve made a similar recipe before to enjoy while we decorate the Christmas Tree, but this was by far the best way to make these.  (I promise, your family will love them!)

For the Sandwich
  1. 24 good white dinner rolls We used Sara Lee and they were perfect, but you may want to check out the 0.75/1 Pepperidge Farm Stone Baked Artisan Rolls, exp. 12/25/11 (SS 10/16/11) coupon to make them just $1.09!
  2. 24 pieces good honey ham Hillshire Farm Deli Select Lunchmeats, Ultra Thin, 8 or 9 oz tub – $3.33
  3. 24 small slices Swiss cheese
  4. 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  5. 1/3 cup miracle whip

For the Poppy Seed Sauce

    1. 1 Tablespoon poppyseeds
    2. 1 1/2 Tablespoons yellow mustard $0.30/1 French’s Mustard printable
    3. 1/2 cup butter, melted I used some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Baking Sticks stocked up on from the sale a few week’s ago
    4. 1 Tablespoon minced onion
    5. 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce $0.50/1 French’s Worcestershire Sauce printable



  1. Slice buns in half lengthwise.   Take top half off and set aside.  (I left my buns together to make the recipe eiasier.)
  2. Mix together mayonaise and Miracle Whip, and spread onto both sides of the roll.  (Optional, I only spread it on the bottom half of my rolls.)
  3. Add slices of ham and cheese to bottoms of buns.  Then put tops of rolls back on and put them in large baking dish.  Keep your rolls close together.
  4. In bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the poppy seed sauce.  Pour over sandwiches and let sit 10 minutesor until the butter has lightly set.  Cover the baking dish with foil, then bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes, or until warmed through and cheese is beginning to melt.  Uncover and cook an additional two minutes.  Serve warm.

  1. This is great! I thought I was the only person in the world who thinks Miracle Whip when mayo is called for————–gag! The thought of plain mayo is just not a good idea. Miracle Whip ALL THE WAY!

  2. Thank you! I have a friend who ‘can’t cook’ so brings this to every function we have at church. It’s so YUMMY!
