Baked Ham & Cheese Sliders

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and people were raving about it.  We tried them and they are so good, I will be making about 6 trays(9×13 foil pans) of them to freeze.  This will be our Saturday lunch for the next few weeks!

16 dinner rolls, cut in half (I used slider buns)
½ lb sliced deli ham
8 slices Swiss cheese
¼ C. mayonnaise (optional)
1 ½ T Dijon mustard
6 T butter
1 t onion powder
½ t Worcestershire sauce
1 T poppy seeds (optional)
¼ C. brown sugar
Line a 9×13 baking dish with bottom halves of dinner rolls. (They should fill the dish and fit snug)
Top each with ham and cheese.
Spread mayonnaise, if using, on each top half then top each sandwich. Cover with plastic wrap.

Add next 6 ingredients to a small microwave safe bowl with lid.

To bake:

Uncover sandwiches.
Warm sauce in microwave until butter is melted. Mix well and pour over sandwiches.

Bake covered with foil in 400 degree oven for 10 minutes.  Uncover and bake additional 5-10 minutes or until tops are golden brown

    Thank you for this recipe! I have seen a similar one, but we HATE onions at our house! I am not one to ‘tweak’ the recipe myself. So thank you for doing it for me! Also, I like the addition of brown sugar and mayo. Can’t wait to try them!

    Thank you for the recipe, these were wonderful! I made them once for my family and they loved them. I thought there was a bit too much sauce (maybe it's the kind of rolls I'm using and how much they soak up? The bottoms were pretty soggy) So the second time I used the same amount of sauce but used 24 rolls on a half sheet pan, just right for my tastes :) …and just the perfect dish to take to a potluck, I guesstimate they cost about 25 cents a sandwich.

    not really "raw" but uncooked. Sorry. I am not awake yet.

    I would freeze raw along with the glaze in its own container. Thaw and cook as directed. This has become a staple in our house. I make 4-5 foil pans of these at a time to keep on hand!! :)

    These were so good!! Also, A perfect recipe for leftover holiday ham!

    Krista–I haven't tried freezing them yet. I think you could freeze them cooked, then pull out a few at a time to thaw in the fridge, then heat up in the micro.

    Should these only be frozen raw our can they be baked ahead of time and reheated in microwave? I'd like to make for a friend who had back surgery and can't use an oven yet.

    I tried these. They were awesome. 12 rolls fit exactly in the pan I had and there were 5 left and the kids fought over who got the odd number for lunch.
