Hot Ham and Cheese Sliders.

It might come as a shock to some, but yes, sliders can be something other than mini burgers. If you’ve ever been to ANY potluck here in the South you’ve had these little bites of hot ham and cheese goodness. They’re also perfect for the holiday season when we’re all busier than we normally are, have unexpected guests popping over or have to feed a crowd. Okay, these are pretty much good all the time. let’s just go with that. They’re also incredibly simple. We have a winner winner hot ham and cheese dinner.

 They start with sweet Hawaiian rolls. Some ham and you guessed it CHEESE. I’m a cheese lover. I want all the cheese varieties. Please and thank you. I’m talking about REAL cheese though. Not processed cheese. We’ve used Sargento® Sliced Swiss Cheese on our sliders. Why? Besides being delicious, Sargento® Sliced Cheese is always 100% real, natural cheese. Did you know that Pasteurized Process Cheese Food (PPCF), sometimes known as American singles, are only required to contain 51% real cheese.  Gasp. I prefer 100% REAL cheese.

Sargento® is a brand I can feel good about. They stand for real, natural cheese. They’re a family company built on heritage & history. Everything they do is for the love of cheese. With the Real Cheese People campaign, Sargento® is rallying consumers to create a community of Real Cheese People who declare their preferences, express their passion and share their love for real cheese. Now, that’s a campaign I can get behind!

Once we’ve layered our sliders. We’ll cover them and let them sit for just a bit to let the “sauce” if you will settle in. Then they’re popped into the oven for less than 15 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and warm. You might want to consider doubling this recipe because I’ve never been around where there were any leftover. In less than 30 minutes you’ll have hot sliders to serve a crowd.

    I used more ham (1/2lb) and omitted the poppyseeds since I didn’t have them.

    This is SO good. My husband ate so many of them and even requested I make it the following week. This would be GREAT as like an appetizer for a party. Yum!
