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 do try my homemade honey mustard sauce, it’s the best. 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!

  • 1 ½ tsp. honey
  • 8 Hawaiian rolls or slider buns
  • 8 slices deli ham*
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese, swiss cheese or american cheese*

  • Assemble and warm the sliders: Slice rolls in half and spread about ¾ teaspoon of honey mustard sauce on bottom half of each roll. Top each with a slice of ham and a slice of cheddar and cover with top bun to close sandwich.
  • Place sliders on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes, until cheese is melted and sliders are warmed through. Serve immediately.
