  • 1 stick butter (1/2 cup) softened
  • 2 teaspoons mustard
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ small onion, finely grated
  • 1 package (12 rolls) party rolls or slider buns I like King's Hawaiian rolls
  • 12 slices thinly sliced deli ham
  • 3 slices cheese Swiss, cheddar, or American, cut into 12 squares
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a large baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together butter, mustard, poppy seeds, Worcestershire sauce, and onion.
  3. Split open a roll and spread butter mixture on the top and bottom of the inside of the roll. Add 1 slice of ham and 1 square of cheese; replace the top of the roll to make a sandwich. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  4. Place sliders close together in prepared dish.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until cheese melts.
Recipe Notes

To Make Ahead: Assemble sliders as instructed through Step 4. Wrap tightly and freeze for up to 3 months. You can bake them directly from the freezer – simply add a few minutes to the baking time to make sure that the cheese is fully melted.

Cooking Just for Two? Divide the 12 sliders into 2 separate 8-inch square pans. Bake one pan at a time and keep the extra pan in the freezer for a later use.

Cook's Tip: Add a couple of teaspoons of brown sugar to the butter spread mixture for a sweet-and-savory sauce.
