Ham happened to be on sale that week. I will say because of the general expense of meat I probably would not go out of my way to make this meal again. However, it will be in rotation for when we generally have leftovers of ham. So, think Resurrection Day/Easter, Christmas or New Year's if that's your thing... or anytime it is on sale. This recipe may work well with deli sliced ham if you find a good deal on it. This meal was a bit on the expensive side for me because I got the swiss cheese in the deli. However, my buyer's remorse was short lived with how well this meal went over with everyone AND I was able to use the cheese I had not only for this meal but for another meal and some lunches.
I actually halved this recipe because I didn't think we would need ALL of them. Plus, I was running short on time (I forgot I still had to slice the ham myself!) and I had opted earlier to only buy one bag of rolls. Next time I will make the full recipe as they were gobbled up and they would make AWESOME leftovers. Just sayin'.
Ham and Cheese Sliders
adapted slightly from the Recipe Club
24 good white dinner rolls24 pieces good honey ham
24 small slices Swiss cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup miracle whip
Poppy seed sauce
1 T poppyseeds
1 1/2 T yellow mustard
1 stick butter, melted
1 T minced onion
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and miracle whip. Spread onto both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet. Place very close together.
In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients. Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches. Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes. Serve warm.
** sandwiches can be assembled a day ahead and kept in the fridge ready to bake.
