Nothing beats easy foods for entertaining!  These Easy Hawaiian Ham and Swiss Sliders can’t get any easier and the fact that ham and cheese are perennial favorites will make your game day menu a success!

These bite-sized treats aka ham Swiss sliders are party sandwiches that are made in one dish.  Assembled in a casserole dish or baking tray which you can make ahead and just pop into the oven when you’re ready to eat!  They are also a great way to use all of the leftover ham you might have this time of year!

These game day sandwiches are filled with fresh ham and lots of Swiss cheese. Top that deliciousness with the butter then the buttery Worcestershire mustard sauce that you brush over the top before baking and you get a bite-sized game day snack that makes them a step above your average ham and cheese sliders.

If you want a sauce to serve on the side be sure and make up a quick batch (less than 10 minutes) of the Caroline Mustard Barbecue Sauce. It’s a great addition to these ham sliders.

The easiest way to assemble ham and swiss sliders

Buying the rolls in the plastic packages where you have to pull them apart makes cutting the rolls for assembly super easy.  Our family LOVES Kings Hawaiian Sweet rolls so that is what I used..  But you can use the rolls your family likes for an easy substitute.

Making super bowl party food ham and cheese sliders is easy buying rolls that are all together. You. can see how to cut them all to once in the photo

Assemble the sandwiches in the same bread block.  Only cut them after serving them. Note in the photo below this loaf will make six sliders.  You won’t break them apart until after baking.

Then you cover them with the entire slice of tops then drizzle on the butter sauce just before baking!

Swaps and Questions with these sliders for game day snacks:

Can I make these ham sliders ahead of time?  By all means, make them ahead of time so you aren’t missing watching the big plays!  Assemble them and have them covered with foil until you’re ready to bake them.  When you turn on the oven to heat it up, remove the foil and  drizzle the butter mustard sauce over the sliders at that time.)

Do I have to use the butter sauce?  Well, you don’t have to if you don’t want to, but the butter sauce makes these ham and cheese sliders.  I know if you are watching what you eat you will be tempted to reduce or skip the butter/mustard sauce.  It makes the ham and cheese slider.

The liquid spreads out and melds all of the flavors deliciously when baking.  There is a little bit of mustard and Worcestershire in the sauce which add a buttery tang to each bite.  Besides the sliders are so small you can limit the amount but still enjoy the whole flavor of the sauce in each bite!

What other rolls or breads can I use to make these sliders?  I’m particular to soft dinner type bread rolls, but any soft bread or small roll will work.  If you are using rolls that are not still attached, just lay them in the casserole dish close together then assemble them all at once.

Do I have to bake these ham and swiss sliders?  You can absolutely serve these cold without baking them.  If you do that brush the sauce on the inside of the roll before placing the ham and cheese on the bread.  You’ll still have a great full-flavored sandwich!

Can I sub any other cheese for the Swiss cheese?  You can use any cheese that you like, preferably ones that melt easily.  Cheddar, American, Provolone or Gouda work well.
