Ham and Swiss Cheese Sliders

Sliders are just a mini sandwich. Before Easter I saw a few recipes for ham and Swiss and thought I'd make a copy cat recipe with our left over Easter ham. The ham disappeared before I could make these so I used deli style sliced honey ham. When I make sliders of any kind I usually make my own slider buns, but they can be found in most grocery store bakeries. These warm little sliders make a great light meal served with a salad, or serve them at the next game night. 

  • 12 slider buns (these are very small soft dinner buns)
  • 12 slices of ham, baked left over ham or deli honey ham
  • 12 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard (I like to use the hot and spicy, or the honey style)
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp finely minced red onion
  • 1/2 tbsp poppy seeds
  1. In a small bowl make a spread by stirring together the mayonnaise, first amount of Dijon (1 tsp) and sugar.
  2. Slice open slider buns and spread both sides with spread.
  3. Place a slice of Swiss cheese, then ham, then another slice of cheese. (Swiss cheese slices are usually large, so I cut them to fit the small buns) Place the top of the slider buns on top.
  4. Place filled sliders close together in a low casserole or pie plate. 
  5. Melt butter, stir in remaining ingredients. Stir well to combine and spoon this poppy seed butter mixture over sliders.
  6. Cover with foil and bake in 350ยบ oven for 15 minutes. Remove foil and let bake for 2-3 more minutes. Serve immediately. 


  1. Those look delicious Kathy! The "topping" makes these extra special.

  2. Needless to say, I knew immediately this was yet another scrumptious "Kathy" recipe! All I can say is...Yum! This is sure to end up in my "favorites" recipe book. Thanks, Kathy!

  3. What a great idea! This would be wonderful at our large family gatherings. I would love to know which recipe you use for the buns, they look perfect. Thank you.
