Ham and Cheese Sliders are the perfect make-ahead party food. Who can resist a warm sandwich with melty cheese, salty ham, and sweet honey mustard sauce?

I made these sliders for my son’s birthday party and they were a hit. Everyone kept raving about how good they were, and they are so easy to make! I wanted to keep the party menu simple but still delicious, and sliders were definitely the way to go. I assembled these earlier in the day, popped them in the fridge on a baking sheet, and then warmed them in the oven right before dinner time.

For these sliders, I made a quick honey mustard sauce but dijon can be substituted for even faster preparation. Buttery slider buns will work but I used sweet Hawaiian rolls for these sliders which make a delicious balance to the salty ham and cheese flavors. Swiss cheese or American are traditional but a thick slice of cheddar is so tasty too!

Since the party, I’ve made ham and cheese sliders for dinner when I wanted something quick and easy. The melty cheese, salty ham, and sweet honey mustard come together to make one delicious sandwich. Try these sliders at your next party, they make a great appetizer too!
