Print Recipe


  • 9"x 13" baking dish


  • baking spray
  • 12 Hawaiian dinner rolls unattached
  • 24 slices deli ham or 12 thicker slices slices of baked ham
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter melted (1 stick)
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ tsp Kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper ground


  • Preheat oven to 375°F and spray the baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Place the lower layer of the buns in the baking dish, and add a layer of mayonnaise, then a layer of ham, and then a layer of cheese. Top with the top layer of the buns.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, poppy seeds, Dijon, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour the butter mixture all over the tops of the buns and then cover with foil and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Place the covered dish in the oven and bake for 17 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 3 to 5 minutes, until the tops of the buns are golden brown.
  • Let the sliders sit for a few minutes before removing from the dish. Place on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to separate the sliders from each other. Serve at once!



This recipe can easily be doubled if serving a large group.
We love using 1 stick of butter, but if desired, you can reduce the butter amount to 4 tablespoons and it will still be delicious.
The sliders can be assembled up to 3 hours before baking.  Wait to pour the butter sauce over the buns until 10 minutes before baking.
Other types of cheese that would be delicious are provolone, Gruyere, fontina, and Monterey Jack.
Thinly sliced honey ham from the deli is great for this recipe, but so is thinly sliced left over baked ham.
